Moving Again - The 20th Time In 14 Years --Update--

Posted by   + Show Post
Thankfully, we are moving for the last time!

We are closing on some land and a little trailer next week. It's not much, but we will own it outright! We will save what would be rent payments to put toward building a house in a few years!

My kids are excited that soon they'll have a house, yard, chickens, and rabbits (the last 2 for food). We also know a church member who sells raw milk ($2 a gallon too).

UPDATE - We close on Friday morning!!!

--New Update--

Kind of. LOL

The owner lives in UT. We are buying in MO. They FedExd the paperwork for the owners to sign, including an overnight FedEx envelope. They told them to mail it yesterday, so it would be here today. They mailed it today. 😖

We did our part of the paperwork and gave our cashiers check for the property. They should have the paperwork Monday. The title co will hold onto the check until all paperwork is done. We should have it Monday.

We bought mainly for the lot. The trailer (which isn't real pretty and needs a lot of work) will be temporary until we build our place in a few years.

**Update**
We closed on Monday the 23rd. It's ours. :D

 Are you a vegetarian? If so, don't get even me started on how much better fresh meat is than the the CRAP you buy from the grocery store.

That is horrible that the chickens and rabbits are going to be used for food.

 Congratulations! I just made my 12th move in 10 years last August, and it was my last as well. We bought a brick ranch house on 16 acres in the middle of nowhere.

Is anyone else singing "It's the circle of life?" I am in my head.

I think being in a place where you can be more self sufficient is a great idea! Enjoy!

 Yep. You can always tell who the city folk are when this discussion comes up on CM. Unless you are a vegetarian, you are making yourself sound like an idiot. Meat doesn't just magically appear on store shelves, and MY meat isn't pumped full of crap either.

Quoting beaugrl0824:

Hunny you must be city born.

They aren't just pets...my 5 year old knows the chickens, piglets, and calves she plays with will today end up feeding her later. It life and its cheaper to raise your own than buy from the store. And you know exactly what its been feed.



Quoting Caitlin10081989:

Yes, really. 


Quoting beaugrl0824:

Really...wow smh
