O!M!G! I told you. Didn’t I tell you? I told you!
I said it before and it has always proved to be true. If I ever need something, just wait and it will come to me. Sometimes the wait is extreme but it always works out.
Today I drove out to the country to take a really good close-up look at the land I am buying. As I told you before, it is pretty well overgrown but that’s the way I like it. Privacy!!!
I took come branch cutters and made my way around the property. I walked up the part where I think I will put the driveway.
I stood at the spot I plan on placing the house. There is a very nice view from the future front deck of some oak trees where I might place a gazebo.
The land slopes just slightly to the side. I don’t think that will be a big problem. Otherwise. I really like what I see. Once I clear out all the brush where I want openness, it will be spectacular.
I’ll plant some more trees. Pecan and other fruit and nuts maybe. More oaks.
I walked over to the other part of the land that I wish to sell to check out the stock tank.
It’s pretty nice but it wastes usable land. I’m not into fishing and it’s not really something you would swim in. I’d rather not have that part. The land around it is pretty good but a little more rough. I’ll stick with the flat on my side.
It was an excellent experience. I love what I see. It was nice and quiet and private. Perfect. No regrets.
I inspected the fence along the front. It needs some repair. Should not be difficult.
As I was leaving, the survey crew showed up to find the spot I want to split it. Yay! They are fast. I just called yesterday with the info. Good thing I called when I did or they would have split it wrong. I didn’t want it split in equal parts.
I had just left to drive home when the realtor called. She told me that another relative from the area is interested in the other part. Bonus: He’s about my age and single. I might just have the friend I’ve always wanted right next door. Does it get any better than that? It will really be nice to have someone to talk to so close. I don’t see that part of the relatives much so I don’t know him but I’m looking forward to meeting him. I hope we can help each other with stuff. His family has a history of farming in the area so he might have easy access to heavy equipment if we need it.
I’m excited about the possibilities of change in my life. It looks like all my decades of difficult patience, saving and suffering is finally paying off. I’ve already signed the contract but closing isn’t until December due to paperwork. I’m not sure if I should count it as a win yet or not. I guess a signed contract is as good as done.
It will feel really good to finally have the base for my future life. Floating in limbo for so many years has really sucked. Now I will have a lifeline to pull myself down to earth. I already feel less stressed out. I was worried that I was chasing an impossible dream. More and more people spilling into the US buying up all the land and causing the price to go up beyond my means was a serious concern. Now that I have it, I can let that go.
Damn. I’m lucky. Providence is truly a good friend to me and I really appreciate it.
