It was a pretty tough end of the year. We lost a lot of the goats, sold others off. We also had a hell of a time making ends meet. 6 to 7 people in one area is a lot of people, and a lot of expenses. Plus while we have the twins, it was way overcrowded and just not enough room for all of us. Danny got a new job making good money, and insurance! We just couldn’t keep up with all the bills the farm had. The electrical bill alone was outrageous.
Danny and I made the decision to move back to Lawrence. We now own our very own home. We bought a single wide trailer, close to his parents and not too far from the kids. We found out we already knew our neighbors as well. One currently works with Danny and the other used to. It’s made it a lot easier to get used to the neighborhood when you know the people you live around.
I toyed with the idea of not renewing the website, of letting it go. But, I also realized I am doing way more house stuff now than I did at the farm, so maybe we should chronicle what we are doing.
We have some pretty big plans for the house, including redoing the kitchen and our bathroom.
So, instead of a farm blog, this will be our home blog. We will still have some farm related things, after all, I still have a couple of goats at the farm. But, this will mostly be about the stuff we have going on in our every day life, how to get/stay organized, recipes, some sewing stuff. Anyway, welcome to our new home!
