We bought land. The septic system is there, the well, the electricity and the mobile home on it is a junk. So, we need to find a newer one without going 40K into debt on a new one, put in a concrete pad with tie downs to put one on and move in. We also will have to tear down the existing one plus the one I'm living in now unless someone offers me money for it which I doubt. It's old and not quite a junk but getting there. How old is it? Let me put it this way. In 1993 my furnace serviceman exclaimed that the furnace was old enough to go out drinking in NYS where the age is 21.
I want a new one with more rooms in it so I have space to hide my husband's business mess. I have found 2 mobiles that I wouldn't mind having. Unfortunately we couldn't meet the sellers price on the first one and it appears we won't get the second one either. We know how much we have saved and we don't want to borrow if we don't have to. If we do have to borrow I want a small enough loan that I can pay off in 2 or 3 years.
I was looking at the calendar and noting that next Tuesday the 26th I will have been an online blogger for a decade. It seems to me that I should feel more of a sense of accomplishment than I do. Maybe it's because I've spent 20% of that time blogging in a day care center for cranky old adults. Some people call it an asylum but the truly insane only comprise maybe 10% of the population there so I'm not quite sure asylum is the word, however some of those bloggers there are strange.
It's almost like they're characters out of a Pink Floyd song. "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" or maybe "Wish You Were Here". I'm pretty sure some of them are "Comfortably Numb". Between the paranoid and the Bipolar there are a few peaceful bloggers that make the stay worthwhile. And too, people actually comment on our blogs although there are some I wish wouldn't.
Sometimes I really wish I'd never started blogging. Other times I'm glad I did because I've had exposure to people I would have never met otherwise including those I suspect might just be crazy. It's all good, even when it's bad, it's good.
