This evening Tony signed up for an online course that could make us eligible for a first time homebuyer program that eliminates the need for an initial down payment. This could potentially save us thousands of dollars. The local college offers a class too but it won't have another one until March, so if we can finish this online one up in the next week or so (as he has time, like I said, he's going to be working extra next week), this could help immensely. Imagine if we could put the money we had for the down payment toward immediate repairs to the couple of bigger issues? I'm feeling like things are falling into place... Every time I falter and worry, it just comes together.
I won't know for sure what's going on with the property until after my surgery next month, so I may finish winter sowing the couple of flower varieties I was going to try and not do any of the fruits and vegetables until after surgery when I have a better idea of if I need to grow a small garden worth of select veggies, or if I can go a little wild and grow more ... I'm really excited, the anticipation is wonderful.
I have once again updated the fundraiser. This property would be absolutely perfect for the Educational Farm that I have been wanting to open! Every little bit will help, and there are prizes for donating (seeds and recipes and handmade crafts). Please take a minute to go check it out. Even if you can't donate, we sure would appreciate it if people could share the campaign and get the word out. We have never been closer to achieving this goal, and I don't want funding to get in the way of a grand idea.
Tomorrow is #3's class field trip to a local ski resort. She's never gone skiing before but she's really excited about it. I'll be the ever-worried parent all day until she's safely home again.
