The Living Without Series

This is a series of posts that I wrote back in 2006 on living with less stuff. Check them out: liv011Living #2liv031liv04

Coal Creek Farm on Facebook

The Chicken Doctor

April

The Architect

Clay

It has everything but the kitchen si….

Oh, nope it has that too. This wil be the future chicken coop, uh, minus all the stuff and the little red truck.

Nancyb- yes, the firm you listed was correct, but I had to delete your comment for the privacy of that firm. They haven’t met me, yet, and they have no idea, poor souls, what they’re in for when I come to town. I insisted to Clay that I sit in on the last meeting with them, but he didn’t think they were quite ready to grasp the awesome powers that I posses. However, I kept asking, “They know I’m coming, right? Do they know I want to be taken out to lunch? I have a list of my requests and they’ll need to get busy finding the chauffeur to take the children to their activities. What about my massage therapy, they’ll cover that right?” I don’t think I’m being unreasonable.

Jennifer- you asked if we were independently wealthy..hahahahahahahahahahahahaha….oh, that’s good stuff. Seriously, no we are not. Clay did take a better paying job, and we were able to purchase the house because:
1. We had already sold our home and have been looking to buy for a couple of years.
2. Houses in Kansas are waaaaaaaaaaaay cheaper than here in St. Louis. It just doesn’t seem fair, but oh well.
3. Like I said, we have promised our first grandchild and we’re selling all our internal organs. Kidneys are so overrated and who needs a heart?
Kathy- You asked if we were going to be farming. No, but I wish. The property is surrounded by a corn field and pasture that has a herd of cattle grazing on it, but it’s not ours….I’m just going to pretend that it is. We will have five acres and there will be plenty of room for gardening and maybe and pet or two or three. Oh, and yes, that was a tree swing and all my kids gave it a test ride and it has been approved. I need to find out how long it will take us to get to the emergency room, I have no doubt that a broken bone or stitches are in my future.
Jean- I can’t move the flock. I know it’s sad. I’ll miss my girls, they treated me well and have kept the bellies of many raccoons and foxes full. We’ll start over and maybe this time we’ll get a rooster that isn’t mean or stupid. I definitely want to get a turkey.
