We put an offer on a property! Modest 2 bedroom home, old dutch style barn, a small outbuilding in disrepair on 40 acres that were cleared a very long time ago. It is brushy grassland with some low-lying area. Problem is there were multiple offers on it! It was only on the market 4 days! So we are waiting... we've been advised that people who put in full-price offers will get an opportunity to put a "best price" offer. We put a full-price offer in, so we still have a chance at it!

In the meantime, I'm daydreaming! As a family, we want chickens. My fianc and son (6 years old) would like to raise fair pigs. I want a sheep for wool, and I adore goats. I have no purpose for goats. I just love them. So I'm thinking little pygmy goats to keep the cost of PET goats down, or pygora goats for wool and nix the sheep.

Our offer has been officially "acknowledged" and "is being reviewed" .....

We're in the first cut. They're taking best price offers until 5 p.m. tomorrow. I'm guessing we'll know before the weekend.
