Oh Mercy!

Don't you just love how things never go as planned?

We found us a place...here...in the Ozarks.  Handing the land in Nevada back over to the original seller because that payment can be put to use here.  It's a nice little house, hanging out on 5 fenced acres, not too far from post.  All that it's lacking is solar, lol.

Soldier is beyond happy as am I, even though we'll spend the next 2-3 months scrimping and saving and squeezing every penny until we're comfortably in place.  We debated asking the in-laws for help, but as Soldier is not 1.) female and 2.) far from being the favorite we've learned over the last 16+ years to ask them for little to nothing.  Of course, it tears him up KNOWING that my broke ass parents would jump in feet first to help us out before his parents would...but it's been tearing him up for most his life (i.e. once he was old enough to recognize #1 and #2 above...so about 8 years old or so).

Sorry family...no visiting from us until probably next year sometime...gotta make sure we're fine first.

In a similar family situation myself. My folks will give the shirts off their limited income backs. The wealthy in-laws make loans...

I wish, Mabe, that I could say the in-laws made loans...for Soldier, not a chance. Older siblings, you bet your sweet ass they will.

Kinda gotten used to it after all this time and know better than to ask.

Haven't visited for a while & I see major changes!
Awesome about the property, it sounds wonderful.

ehh You wouldn't want the in law loan "hanging" over your heads anyway.
