11:37 am - Finding a house in the mountains
Let's see. It was February when I last updated. Let me tell you that Facebook and my other blog and Flickr have just about taken over my life. I am thinking about when we get our house in the North Carolina mountains, that I might just dis-connect from online life totally. Once I get my baby chicks up and laying eggs. And start weeding my two acres. There won't be much time for laptop addiction. And I am just about burnt out from Facebook. I hate it. And I hate that my retired husband is now addicted to it. He who used to tell me I was addicted to the internet. Is not, "addicted to the internet". On the health update. I just had my two year checkup with my radiologist and he said, " I think, since it has been two years, you are out of the woods." Whatever that means. So, I just try to live each day to the fullest that I am granted and try to forget about that year of my life. Right now we are in Franklin North Carolina. And I have found the second home I would like to own. The first house was in Murphy North Carolina. It was a 1935 historical farmhouse. But my dear, sweet, husband was dragging his feet, saying, lets look at everything there is to see first. And then when he went to put an offer on my beloved farmhouse, it already had a contract on it. I can't tell you how much I cried, and did not talk to him for one entire evening. So, here we are in the mountains of Franklin and I have found, if not an old farmhouse. A house with a view that I could love for the rest of my life. And a house that my kids might like to inherit. What they said about the old farmhouse was not nice. Things, like, are you crazy, insane. They were not fond of the 1935 farmhouse. So, my husband has agreed to make an offer on this house right away. (learned his lesson, didn't he) I will post a few pictures of it. I can have chickens. Not posting much. Don't want to jinx it. Not posting outside. Don't want someone to figure out where it is and steel it. Later. Our dog Tiny is doing so well traveling. I think he is part gypsy.
