How fast can you do a U-turn? In this family U-turns are a regular occurrence and happen pretty darn fast! The rustic house that we made an offer on was know where near ready to sell due to an unwanted divorce (the husband) once again this left us without a house to buy. After many hours of in depth conversations and much prayer we decided to buy the house we are renting, it needs so much work but we got an amazing deal and the property is perfect for our needs, it's just a horrible drive getting here we are 15 minutes to the nearest little town and 30 minutes to the even smaller town. In my adult life I have never lived in the "country" but the advantages to our choice are clear once you get here: we saved roughly $150,000 by buying in "the country" as opposed to "the city" (that just sounds wrong, LOL) the in-ground pool is fabulous, we have 3200+ square feet, I get to completely redo the kitchen and bathrooms (WooHoo), we lots of places for the boys to ride dirt bikes and Tom has land to build the garage of his dreams so he will no longer have to store his old Ford trucks. Things always have a way of working out!

Have a fantastic weekend!!!!
