We Didn't Get It :-(

No this isn't the land, it is just a picture in my sample pictures that came with the computer. I didn't want this post to just be plain text, so I added this little piece of eye candy.
We offered, they counter offered for too much, so we offered higher, but they wouldn't budge, so we told them forget it. We have been searching for land for several months and we know that the land in that particular area is going for $8,000 an acre. They were wanting $10,000 per acre and we just refuse to overpay. But that is OK. I am going Saturday to look at some more land that is actually very cheap. But, I'm afraid that it may be in a flood plain and that may be the reason why. I guess I will find out tomorrow. As for the weather, it was beautiful today. We are suppose to have sunshine the entire weekend, so perhaps I'll get some yard work done. I am working on cleaning my office right now. Thought I would take a breather and bang this post out. I got my boys vacuuming in the other parts of the house. Yes! Child labor. But let me tell you, they aren't cheap. Anyway, thanks for all of your concerns with the weather and the good luck wishes on the land. We aren't in any hurry to purchase, and I feel it is best that we take our time and find a piece we love and can afford. I'll catch you peeps later.

Peace out.

Glad you are finally getting some weather to enjoy. We finally got some sunshine as well. It makes it all seem worth it when you have days like that. Good luck finding some land, and hope you and the boys had a wonderful weekend.

Okay, I'm back for serious stuff. But this will be quick because I have to plant a pink pussy willow I was supposed to plant months ago.

Sorry about not getting the property. You have the right attitude though. It wasn't for you. The right one will come along and you'll know it. Take your time, enjoy the process and eventually you will have the home of your dreams.

I buy or subscribe to every damn shelter magazine here and in England and one home that has always remained with me is a home in Texas. It was a country home, very simple architectually, and surrounded on all 4 sides by a continuous enclosed screen porch and all rooms opened to it! Brilliant!!! You don't need a huge interior space if you have all that outdoor space! I just loved it and loved the concept. If you want, I will try to find the photos. Yes, I saved them. You might want to incorporate some of the idea into your new home. To me it proved, it isn't the amount of square footage that matters, it's simply the quality of life.

I love you my dear,
Suze XO

I agree with you and the other folks--good attitude, no panic, you will meet up with a wonderful and affordable piece of land in the end.

I LOVE child labor. At least in my own home. Your boys are vacuuming!!! Way to go!!! I don't care how much you bribed 'em, it's still awesome!!! I've been trying to get Hedgie to do more around the house...hmmm...
