I cannot adequately express my gratitude for all the 1805 comments my loyal, faithful readers have left on my 1934 posts since this blog's inception. They have truly been a blessing for me. For the first time in a decade, I no longer felt alone in the world. I felt valued as a human being. There is no way to convey how much that has helped alleviate my depression and isolationism. My deepest, most heart felt thanks to you all!

We still have to get my father's shop built, get my parents moved, and fix up the yard. As well as do some minor cosmetic touch ups to their current house before putting it on the market. Once it is sold, we will begin building. Hopefully, it will sell quickly and we can get started.
The plan has been chosen, again. This makes the third one. It has been a difficult choice as to what to build. I don't need much space and trying to find a small, functional plan was more problematic than I thought it would be. I think I've looked at almost a thousand plans. I would love to show it to y'all, but with the copyright laws are, I don't wanna take the chance of a violation.
It is only 1,000 sq ft. It has 3 bedrooms and one full bath that connects directly to the master bedroom and hallway with a laundry closet. The living room, dining room and kitchen are all open to one another, making it seem rather spacious. A large front porch and large open rear deck round out the plan. It has amble closet space for storage and wall space for furniture and art placement. A nice gas fireplace with flanking built in bookcases to either side. Some of the details are still being debated depending on cost such as the hardwood floors through out and granite counter tops, but when further along I'll be able to tell more about it.
So far, so good, even if a bit of a glacier pace. I'm getting a bit more excited as details are firmed up. Hopefully, with all the carefully planning, I won't have to cut corners to get it finished and on budget. That's where it stands as of today.

Disliking English Says You Are Energetic
You are a fast moving, energetic, and ambitious person.
For you, English is too slow and nuanced. You don't have the time for all that reading and writing.
Besides, what fun is living through stories when you could just go do the real thing.
Forget the travelogs, you rather travel the world. Forget the poetry, you rather fall in love
