I was putting it off

Yesterday the realtor called and said the farm house I like the best needs to be sold. The women that owns it is in a Nursing home and her family needs to pay for her care. They want to drop the price. We need to decide soon. They will list the new price next week. It will probably sell fast. I think the price is very good now. Still, I had hoped to put off any decisions. It's Christmas. And renovation will be costly and time consuming. I didn't want to think about it just yet! We need wisdom about this. There are not many houses like this one...but the work is great. I would love to have the house, but I hate the work involved. We may very well say no. I hope we agree to say yes, but we really have to both agree. I think we will try to see the house again on Saturday. The realtor is going on vacation for 3 weeks. Perhaps we can tell him yes or no in January. I really wouldn't want to deal with this now, but our timing is not always Gods timing. Perhaps, as we look back on this will see the timing was perfect? Right now it just seems like poor timing! I’m glad they called us…and gave us a shot at the place. Still, the ball is in our court and I’m not sure what we should do!

The garden is beautiful and large, you could be farmer brown and give your children farm responsibilities. The house could be a family project.
I will tell you it's a lot of work to care for a large home and yard.
A full time job, we love it.
But it's not for everyone.
