    Hey everyone

    You may have noticed I haven't been posting as much, shame shame on me.

    Well the reason is times are becoming very tough around here. We're in a toxic situation that is causing a lot of problems and even starting to damage of marriage. We have been trying very hard to develop some land we have, however, we've realized that this just isn't possible.

    We started to look around for a place to rent, but have decided to have a go at buying a home. So now I'm trying to figure out everything possible to help us, we don't have a lot of money to put down on a house, and really don't have very good credit, or its nonexistent, really don't know.

    We'll be finding out a lot of information here shortly, my dad is going to give us a hand sorting this outs.

    Wish us luck, because if we fail . . . we will have to sell everything we worked so hard to get, including all of our livestock, and end up in an apartment.

    Thanks everyone, I really appreciate all your support.

    Monday I'll be talking with a loan agent, so I can find out if we'll even qualify to buy a home. Even with this being a buyer's market, luck doesn't really go our way.

    There is another option, a tiny ranch house, though its a bit far from where husband works. It's for rent, so I'm talking with the owner. I still want to try to buy but . . .

    Of course, we'll find out we're unable to buy only to turn around and find out the house has been rented out already.

    That's the way things work with us. :sigh:

    Re: Feeling stressed

    Well...

    So far we are unable to get a loan. We don't have bad credit, we simply have NO credit. You'd think that's be better than bad credit but ah well...

    The loan officer/realtor is going to look into another option, otherwise its a no go. I was very upset, as you can imagine, but husband is determined to stick it out. He wants us to have a go at building credit and just tough out our situation for 6 months to a year more. He really is a great guy; he could insist that we move out now but he's willing to help make it work.

    I'm looking for a second job, technically a third if you include my online job. If we can't get a loan, we'll probably buy a truck to build credit. We really need one anyways.

    If worst comes to pass...a very good friend who lives in the area we want to move to will take Hope. I love all my goats, but Hope is VERY special and I would rather give her to them and know where she is, how she is, and be able to see her, than just sell her to anyone.

    Let's continue to hope that something happens to prevent the worst.

    Thanks for the support.

    Toth, I will send you a PM. I looked for an online job for a LONG time that was legit! I finally stumbled across this one on a chicken forum, so it would be unfair of me not to share. :)

    Re: Feeling stressed - Updated

    Well, there's been a bit of progress.

    We're going to look at a house on Tuesday. Hopefully it will be something acceptable. However, we still need to raise more money for a down payment.

    I may sell Snowflake. She's snotty and I don't really like her much.

    I'll update again when I know more.
