Well, that farm that I loved so much in my last blog post, sold. The old saying, "you snooze, you lose", has never been more true. It took two weeks for me to convince Andrew that it was actually a great deal for the area. When we finally contacted the realtor there was already three offers. We were able to make an offer at the very last minute but since we were not pre approved, we had no idea what we could truly afford. Out of fear, we made a very low offer, (not my idea) and it was not accepted. Lesson learned. Moving on. We are pre approved now and sadly realize that we really could have afforded the place.
It took me a few weeks of periodic crying but I'm okay now, sort of. I still get mad about it. I'm such a dreamer that I had that farm totally planned out. The dreams were made. Gardens were laid. Farm animals were munching on grass. Blast my dreamy dreams!
There will be another. I hope.
