One Step Closer


So I got the job. Thanks to all of you who had wished me luck and such. What this means for Meg and I is that we will be moving at some point this coming Summer. Future House is becoming very real. What we are hoping to accomplish in the next eight months or so is to save enough loot to put a down payment on a piece of land with any kind of livable shack. We'll probably start the hunt sometime in January or February. You can bet that we'll keep you posted.

Holy shit.

Another lurker here wishing you both well on your journey into house farm ownership. May you continue to learn, grow and keep sharing the experiences. I love your blog! I was encouraged all summer long reading your entries as I stumbled my way through my first,but not last, veggie garden.

Meg said...

Holy shit. Congratulations. Love reading your experience growing your own food. It is one of the most rewarding things one can do. Enjoy the process. I will keep my fork and hoe cross untill you get what you're looking for.

Kelly, I thought about this post yesterday as I was listening to the Prairie Home Companion.
You end with "Holy Shit"---a perfectly acceptable exclamation considering you are finally on the road to what you want.
Anyway, have a listen to this:

Once you click on it, you'll need to click on "Segment 4" News from Lake Wobegone. It goes on for 16 minutes---slide it over to 9 minutes and 12 seconds to hear the part that reminded me of your post. Holy Shit, indeed. :)

Congratulations! It'll probably still be a buyer's market by then, so here's hoping you find the perfect Future House. Also, good luck figuring out what to do with your garden when you think you'll be moving in the summer--I'm having the same problem myself. :)
