Waiting game

Waiting. The agent finally got to talk to the owner late yesterday, and they didn't say no to my offer. I should know more today.

I have had people say buying here is great, and others that warn me against it. I would say the population here is largely transplants. Not sure I have met a native yet. They must like it here for a reason. Yes, there is a lot of property for sale here, some estates, some just wanting to get out. I hear the summers are absolutely miserable, and if Kali Cat is still with me by then, I will be finding that out for myself. The people that I have talked to that bought here, love it. Some are year round and some go north for the summer.

Everyone has their reasons for wanting to be here or wanting to leave. I want to draw my own conclusions. I won't know unless I try it. I am not a fan of extreme heat or extreme cold. I just left an area where I am stuck inside six months of the year because of the cold and snow. Time to try something at the other end of the spectrum.

I don't want to waste what little money I have on rent. My funds are limited, and I will get what I can afford. Hoping to find some way of generating some income without having to go to work for someone else. If I do have to get a job, it will be just a job, I'm done with career type jobs. Let someone else deal with all the issues. Do my work, collect a pay check and go home.

Yesterday was chore day. Did laundry, got gas for the generator, etc. Read in the afternoon and went to the campfire two rigs down last night.

So far, I haven't fired up the generator this morning. I will probably have to as I don't thing we will have any sun today. I will need power tonight.

Kali Cat and I are not going to the vet for a re check today. She is much improved and the experience is just way too traumatic for her and me. I will take her again when she starts having problems again. Until then, we are good. He will just tell me to continue the meds until they are gone anyway. Been there, done that already.

I don't have anything on the agenda for today. Waiting to hear from the agent, chasing down an obnoxious smell inside here. Getting a shower (which is a whole production in itself), and just hanging out. Weather is cool, and is supposed to rain. Might be a reading/napping kind of day.


  1. Best of luck with the real estate

  2. Thanks. Still waiting. I will move on in a couple of days. I don't like games.

  3. From reading your blogs, it would appear that you were the recipient of enough of those when you sold your place. lol

  4. Yeah, I'm tired of those, and had a years worth of waiting after signing the contract when I sold the place in IP.
