Freaking house hunting

Trying to find a house is turning out to be a second job.

It all started out happy and care-free: we were dreaming up our perfect house.  A house with enough room for us, the baby and the animals.  Plus, there would be a good size of land (~5 acres) that we could have to plant, have bees, do what we pleased.  It would not in the middle of town, so we wouldn't have neighbors right on top of us.  It was great dream...

Too bad it seems it is only that; a dream.  After going over all of our information We began the search for a home.  Turns out we can't get what we want for what we are willing (and able) to pay.  So we have scaled back our dreams.  Maybe 2 acres would be enough to get done what we want.  That helped bring the price down, but it is sitll on the verge of being too expensive...

We are going to look at one house that is close...if we only had a few more months, than we could probably raise some more capital.  Getting an extra 10-12k would probably put a few more things in our price range.

Also, it seems to be lately that things are about 10% more than i want to spend...

tired

Balloon rally was fun. Tiring but fun. Hope to post the pictures soon. Oscar did very well even with all the people and noise. I was very impressed! Camping this year just might turn out alright...
