If she did it again, she wouldn’t

Ben likes to hang out at the land, if he gets the opportunity. We don’t own it yet. It would be nice if we were close. Maybe we are. Just waiting on the trustees. Maybe they meet twice a year. That would make sense.

In the meantime Ben has been making friends with the neighbours. They bought their bit of land at the same time our vendor bought ours. They built a house on it. She said if they did it again.. they wouldn’t do it again. Too stressful, too hard.

So I was asked the question again. Do I really want to do this? I guess there are challenges she hadn’t anticipated, difficulties she hadn’t thought of.

In the eyes of the optimist, we are realists. In the eyes of the realists we are pessimists. I’m sure we haven’t thought of everything that will be a problem, of all the challenges that will come our way. But we expect challenges and problems. It’s taken most of a year not to buy the land. And that’s just the beginning.

Yes, I still want to do this. I just hope we get the chance.
