god’s humor?

ok, so there are very few houses in lancaster that have basements underneath them; potential to grow into a bigger home without building on. of all the houses that have come up for sale there is ONE that has stuck out. it has never really been for sale though. the owner has been in the nursing home for a long time and the family wanted to wait until she passed before selling her home. 

we even called them about it and asked about buying it! they never ended up calling back. 

we decided to go ahead and build. we’d never been in this house before, no clue how much updating it would need. yes it would be a home right away and not all the remodel work in 6 months but we would for sure, no doubt, spend double if we bought and remodeled than what we would spend building. so we started plans to build, went to the bank, found land, priced everything…. 

she died. 

she did, this past week. her funeral was yesterday. 

so i imagine the house will be for sale soon. 

do we go look at it?

it’s tempting.

but it’s in town. lucy wouldn’t be free. 

when we started this whole process, i asked eric to promise me that lucy was a priority and the place we bought or built, lucy could run free all day and come home for supper and sleep locked up in her kennel. this house, well, it would be the same as it is right now. she is tied up because we are in town and i HATE all the dogs that just run free and taunt lucy and people.  

i’m still tempted. 

and thinkin.

can you believe this?! gr! the decision was easy before!
