Well I just finished a picture web page to help us sell our house. The house goes on the market tomorrow. We have spent the last year renovating it. Now its time to sell it and move on to the next chapter. Nervous as can be I swear. We have already made the move out to my parents farm where we will be building our house. And I do mean we will be building. The plan is to build the house ourselves and also do it mortgage free. See why I am nervous. Its such a huge step away from what is normal I think. Most of his family has decided we are insane. My family has thought that for years. ( right after we decided 2 kids just were not enough ) We have the plans drawn out. Earth sheltered on 3 sides first floor with a barn roof on top. I want stone facade on the exposed side of the main floor and I am seriously studying metal roofing options. Its exciting and scary at the same time. I wish I knew if this were the right thing to do. The house we are selling is really becoming a beautiful home. We have put so much time into it. I pray and pray and pray for guidance but I am getting no definite answers back. I would love some word for word instructions on what to do and what to expect but I am pretty sure he is saying no to that request. It feels everything pushes us in this direction and obstacles fly out of the way but its such a huge step. Do you realize we will be essentially homeless for almost a year. Maybe I am a bit more insane that I thought. At any rate I do not think there are enough hours in the day to get in all the prayer I think this change will need. I am facing some uncertainty about some a health test ( pulmonary nodules), finishing this move, selling this house, building another house, 4 kids, homeschooling, and older parents that seem to face more and more problems. It weighs on me sometimes till I feel like I will break. I think you guys might have seen me break on here a few times. The toll stress can take on a persons health is scary and I have too much stress I cannot seem to let go of. Just keep me in mind when you pray if you can. I am praying I see a new house built and happy healthy kids and parents at the end of this path.
