Waiting will be the hardest part.
I'm really trying to work on my patience and my worrying. Much easier said than done.
Part of that work involves developing a back-up plan. I have several already (of course) but none of them really compare to having a farm of my own, they are just temporary living/working/learning situations for the next year or two. So I started looking at property again. The good thing about real estate is that it's always fluctuating and I actually found another potential property in Salem, about 30 minutes from my parents. The location isn't ideal and the house is TINY (but cute), but the 43 acre property has a lot of potential. And the owner is desperate to sell, so it could be very affordable. I hope to tour it next weekend.
To help take my mind off of things today, I began working on all of my Christmas craft projects. Even though I now have a job, I've been without pay for a couple of months. Actually, my finances are always pretty tight, because I save every penny I can towards going to a farm of my own. Plus I feel like homemade gifts carry an extra care of thoughtfulness. And I love being able to create beautiful things. It's been a very relaxing way to spend a Sunday.
