Curses, Changes Again!

We have been informed by the landlord that they plan on putting this property up for sale in four weeks.
Four weeks?!?
We can stretch it out a bit longer than that because the Darlin" Man has to get leave approved, etc. to get the time off to find us a place to move to, and purchase said property and then move us there.
We plan on moving to Vermont.
I have ramped up our property search and have found around five properties that may suit us.
They range from from 10.5 acres to 40 acres.
All have houses on them (we won't have the luxury of building with this short time frame!). The houses are in various states of repair, or disrepair , as the case may be.
I probably will not see the house and property in person until the day we arrive.
So...a new adventure begins!
I figure the end of August will be our limit here...until then, I'll be packing, taking care of the critters and desperately looking for a property online that we can afford and that has most of the things we want.
We also have to figure out how to transport the 5 of us, 2 dogs, the goats we are keeping (either 5 or 7...still discussing), around 10 chickens plus Pender, the peafowl, maybe a turkey or two. The geese will be going to a new home.
Yeah...Noahs Ark on wheels!
We'll figure it out...somehow, someway...


  1. Oh honey I don't envy you one bit, but I know you'll pull it off gloriously, as always.
    Good luck on the property search, I'll be doing a little extra bit of mediating on your behalf :)

  2. Wow Did you know this was going to happen?? I take it the sale was way sooner then you thought. Please keep us all updated. You and yours are in our prayers.

  3. Wow, from west Texas to the north, where they have "nine months of winter and three months of bad sledding" at least according to Mark Twain. Wishing you all the best in your new adventure. Keep us posted as you can.

  4. Lamb,
    Wow, sure seems like alot to accomplish in a short period of time. I think I would be totally stressed by now. I pray that you and your family find the land and house you want in the Vermont area. It will be interesting to see Noahs Ark on wheels!!!!

    May I ask, what made you decide to move to Vermont?

  5. That's going to be quite a change for sure. Hope you find a wonderful place and the move goes smoothly.

  6. Love reading your blog Lamb! Keep it up. Wow! You have so much to do! Very excited for you! I've nominated you for the Liebster Blog award! :)
