Oh, man, my head is spinning at the possibilities!
Thoughts of moving are keeping me jotting notes and brainstorming options.
I've been busy visiting a popular real estate site. I found several 100 year old homes that looked affordable. Then the thinking kicked in. $9-11,000 down payment? Upkeep! (A lot can go wrong with an old house.)
What are my other options? My kids are looking into a USDA loan to buy a larger home across the road from their little farm. They would keep the farm and just walk across the road to do chores. They said I could buy their trailer and live right there. Great idea, but I'm not sure if I could even get a loan and they're going to live there until their loan goes through. I don't know. It's a bit of a headache to figure that out.
Now, I'm turning back to a mixture of something old and something new. (Old idea; new idea.) Maybe it would work to live in an apartment in Nevis (going to check them out) and then when my widows benefits kick in in fall of 2016 I will save up to build a very small house on my children's property. I'm sure Adam would be willing to build it. This is what I have in mind. I even like the paint job!
So there's one plan. My favorite one, actually. The apartments in Nevis might be for seniors, but they didn't stipulate that last time they placed an ad, so I'm going to check out the possibility. Do some research. (At 58 I may qualify as a senior anyway!) I can still stay in this house for a while, but it's time to start making plans! :)
I'll be babysitting the girls a little later so Micah can go in for her doctor visit. She went yesterday, too, thinking something was going on. Looks like this little girl might get fully baked yet! Prayers for a safe and uneventful delivery are always appreciated.
Let me know what you think of my plan, Papa Glenn. ;) (And anyone else who wants to venture an opinion.)
Shalom! And I hope you're all having warm sunny weather like we are! Relatively speaking, of course.
