Patience Or Not

PatienceFor those of you who missed the Facebook posts, we accepted an offer $5,000 above asking price on our home.  It still means we are a short sale, but it’s better than expected.  A friend is buying the house and while I know it will be loved and taken care of, it’s bittersweet.

Ok I admit, I have not always had patience. When something needs to be done, I jump right in and get it done. Then I can move on to the next thing. I hate waiting on people to move at my speed. When I make up my mind, I get to work. All of which can be a good thing, but can also be attributed to a lack of patience.

I’ve spent the last 7 months telling myself that all of this mess is going to work in our favor and out of the chaos is going to come good things and it is.  We will be out of Florida and I will get to be the Grammi I want to be and Hubs can be the PaPaw he wants to be. That we WILL get control of our lives back.

I’ve also had to learn patience and I must have not learned it yet……..

We’ve had to run our lives on others timelines.  Not ours.  It requires A LOT of patience.   Because the house is a short sale, it has been hurry up and wait.  All the time.  Waiting until the agent we chose can meet with us, waiting for the listing to go live, waiting for showings that are late.  Sometimes several hours.  Some that don’t show up at all.  Having patience with people who stop and come to the door without an agent.  Never know.  They might be the one to buy the house~    Waiting on offers to come in.  Waiting to see what those offers are.  Waiting on the chosen day to review the offers and then determine the best one.

Now comes the real fun and we are  hoping the previous lessons in patience have been learned.  We wait on Fannie Mae to determine if they are going to accept the offer or not.  It can take up to 60 days.  It could be as soon as 14  days ( yeah, we know that it’s not likely).  THEN we get to wait on the closing.  Again, we have no say in when that will happen.

I have started packing, which helps pass the time.  Hubs actually cleaned out one of his t-shirt drawers (there are 8 of them in our house).  We are visiting some of our favorite places because we know it will be the last time we are there.  Again, a bittersweet process.

Trying to keep our eyes on the prize.  Some days are easier than others.

As I sit and write this, I am waiting on the Fannie Mae inspector, who you guessed it…………is late.

EASY Farmer’s Cheese — HEALTHY! Mmmmmmm.

FARMERSCHEESEEasy, easy to make your own Farmer’s Cheese~!

INGREDIENTS:

1 gallon whole milk (We use Raw Milk for nutritional and digestive purposes)

1/4 cup of Organic Cider Vinegar (you can use white vinegar for a milder taste although this cheese is pretty mild with the ACV, too!)

DIRECTIONS:

Heat your milk up slowly in a stainless steel pan to 190 deg. Farenheit. Stir it constantly so it does not scorch or burn.

Add your vinegar and stir thoroughly.

Remove from heat and allow the mixture to sit for a minimum of 15 mins. I usually allow for 1/2 hr or so.

Mix in any seasonings you might want to use (Garlic, Chives, Parsley Flakes, etc.)

Pour mixture into a colander lined with cheesecloth or light tea towel. (You can also use a non-disposable coffee filter, as well) Your colander should be sitting in a deep bowl or pan to collect the whey that will drain from your cheese.

Bring up the four corners of your cheesecloth and tie with an elastic or other tie so you can hang the wrapped “cheese ball’ over a pan to further drain.

Alternately, if using your coffee filter, simply cover and allow to drain.

Allow to drain for about 1/2 – 1 hour then shape and put your cheese into a covered container for storage in refrigerator.

And that’s it!

EASY!

Better Than It Was

Found on considerthishippie.tumblr.com
Found on considerthishippie.tumblr.com

I wish I had the words to tell all of you what your encouragement has meant to Hubs and I the last week. It is better than it was.  I don’t know what I was so afraid of when I hit the publish button on my “Angry and Scared” post last week.

The words in this graphic are what we are striving for.   We’ve had lots of showings on the house and several offers. When we meet with the realtor on Thursday, we’ll pick one.  Shan has been looking for a rental for us and she has it narrowed down to 2.  One we like much better than the other( it has a BIG porch), but at this point, it will be what it is.  We don’t really have a choice, other than to say which one we like best from the pictures.

We’re both still angry and both still scared,  though I admit, not as much as we were a week ago.   We are finally able to laugh and smile a bit as we talk about the things we can do once we get moved.

Talked to two of the Grands today.  I do have their approval to move to NC, so that hurdle is out of the way……WHEW, I was sweating that one.  Youngest is hard to get on the phone but he did tell Best Step-Dad EVER that he thought it would be fun “Cos we can eat together every day and hang out every day and see each other every day”.  Works for me…….Well, Ok we may all need some space, but every other day would work too.

Mama and Best Step-Dad EVER are in NC right now, looking at houses for them.  We are getting ready to list theirs  that is close to us.  They are excited to have our little family all in one place again.  First time in years

Much has been written about Social Media and the relationships built there.  I am here to tell you that all of mine have been amazingly supportive, from the Belles who have prayed, and sent good thoughts our way and continue to do so, to the Blogging Buddies I have made the last few months.   Thank you for giving me courage to say what was in my heart, especially Karen at Baking In A Tornado who helped me realize why I actually do this.  I have been truly humbled by the support.

Now, hop over and read something Dawn at Spatulas On Parade wrote and posted yesterday.  I have now printed it and it hangs on my bathroom mirror, so I HAVE to look at it every day.

Fly On The Wall

Fly on the Wall

Welcome to a Fly on the Wall group post. Today 18 bloggers are inviting you to catch a glimpse of what you’d see if you were a fly on the wall in our homes. Come on in and buzz around my house.

Follow the links below to see what everyone else has been up to this month.

Mike's 07 Shelby GT
Mike’s 07 Shelby GT

Well, y’all know there hasn’t been too many funny things happen at my house this month.  But this one is still cracking me up……………

This is Hub’s car.  His pride and joy.  We’ve all teased him for years that if he had to save me or the car, he’d probably choose the car.  It’s ok.  I get it.  Really. Promise.

19dcsumek7t3kjpgImagine the look on his face when a realtor (obviously not a car guy- he touched it) told him he had done a nice job on his “clone”.   Maybe I should mention that because of the interior, this is one of only 56 in the world……….Yeah. So proud that when I got home, there wasn’t a squished realtor in the driveway.

Hubs very seldom calls Shan.  Imagine her surprise when he did and the conversation went like this:

Hubs:  Your Mom’s not home.
Shan: Ooookay?
Hubs: She forgot her phone. I can’t call her. She left me a list of things I have to do today.
Shan: (Trying to keep the snicker out of her voice) Ooooooookay?
Hubs: I have to vacuum.
Shan: Ooooookay ( by now she knows where this is going)
Hubs: Where does she keep the vacuum?
Shan: In the closet.
Hubs: Which one?
Shan: The walk-in
Hubs: Why does she keep it there? Why doesn’t she keep it in the hall closet. That’s where I always kept one.
Shan: Because the hall closet is full of your fishing and golf stuff.
Hubs: Oh ok. Hold on while I find it. Ok, found it. Plugged it in.
Shan: Ooookay ( still snickering, she does that well)
Hubs: It didn’t start. Why, what’s wrong with it?
Shan: Did you turn it on?
Hubs: How do I do that?
Shan: (by now choking, trying to not laugh), hit the red button.
Hubs: Which red button?
Shan: It’s bright red. It’s on the top.

As she hears the vacuum start, the phone hangs up.

A couple of hours later, Mama gets a phone call:

She answers with: What’s wrong? Is Minette ok?
Hubs: She’s not home.
Mama: Oooooookay
Hubs: She left me a list of things to do. I can’t call her. She left her phone at home
Mama: Ooooooookay?
Hubs: I have to make a meatloaf. I like your meatloaf.
Mama: well thank you. (by now Mama knows where this is going)
Hubs: I don’t know how to make your meatloaf. It won’t really be your meatloaf, it will be mine, but I like the way you do it.
Mama: Thank you.
Hubs: So how do I make your meatloaf that isn’t your meatloaf but mine.
Mama: Just wait till she gets home and tell her to call me. I can’t tell you how to make it. I don’t know how much of anything. I just do it till it looks right. I’ll explain to her that I couldn’t tell you how to make it.  Will that work?
Hubs: That works for me. Could you tell her NOT to ask me to cook things I don’t know how to do?
Mama: Of course.

I should tell you that Hubs is a GREAT cook and does most of it around here, there are some things he has never done. I always make them.
He did find a recipe on line, tweaked it and it was awesome:

Here’s the link to the recipe he used. He did 1/2 it and we still had a lot left over.

Angry and Scared

There is a for sale in front of our house.  It is very bittersweet for us.   It was crazy last night with all sorts of lookie-loos driving by and stopping, wanting to see the house .  Not happening, we told them all to call the realtor.  Isn’t that the proper way of doing things?   Here’s the link if you want to see my house :)   http://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/119-Durland-Ave_Lehigh-Acres_FL_33936_M59726-03473?row=1

My bunch!
My bunch!

As excited as we are that we will be living by the Grands,  I’m angry~  I know, makes no sense, but I am.   I just don’t know who to be angry at.    I am angry because I can’t even get a damn job interview.  If I do get one, it doesn’t pan out.  Or like happened a couple of months ago, I am offered the job, accept and three hours later it’s rescinded because they made a mistake in adding scores.  REALLY????????????  I am angry that no one looks at ME and sees a woman with high energy, quite smart and willing to learn anything you want to teach her.  Who will show up at work every day and give you 110%.  All they see when they look now is that I am 57 years old.  They want someone younger, with a different college degree.  I am angry that we have spent our savings and what little we had for retirement to hang onto our home and now we are leaving anyway.

I am angry that despite 40 years of being a surveyor and  having forgotten more than most of them will ever know, no one wants to give Mike a job.  They look at him and see a 62 year old man that has spent 40 years in the field.  They don’t see HIM and his work ethic or his loyalty, his perfectionism that ensures he never has a bad survey.

I am angry because if you had told me two years ago that we would HAVE to sell our home as a short sale, just to get our from under it I would have laughed at you.  We love our little house.  We were content thinking we would spend the rest of our days there.  Life threw us a couple of curve balls.

I am angry that not only is mine and Hubs life being uprooted and changed in fundamental ways we have no control over, so is Mama’s.  Because she is going to go where I am, wherever that may be.

I’m also scared.

Found on sussle.org
Found on sussle.org

 

I’ve spent many sleepless nights the last 6 months telling me self that what this says is true.  But in the back of my mind is that one small voice saying that I MUST have done something for all of this to be happening.  That being responsible and caring is not going to help me now.

What if I can’t get a job in NC either?  I’m scared that I am too late to be the kind of Grammi I want to be.  The kids are 13, 10 and 8.  They have their routines and friends.  Is there going to be time for me?   Is Mike going to be happy in NC?  Yea, he was stationed there 40+ years ago.  But, I’m guessing it’s changed a bit, plus we’ll be in a different area.

I am both angry and scared because some of the people I thought would stand by me in tough times  turned tail and run.  Some I never thought were are the ones that would have my back are still here and already making plans to come see me in NC on vacation next year.   Some I have always known will watch out for me no matter what.  They have.  They know who they are.

So now you know why I’ve been MIA for a while.  I’m angry and scared and worried and happy and all sorts of things.  Hope y’all stick with me and keep reading what is going through my mind as I get it all figured out and get us moved………

Use Your Words~ Mama’s Ring

Use Your Words
Today is Use Your Words Friday and you know what that means, right? Yep,  we’re going to find out what Mama and Sarah have been up to and where did that ring come from?
When you’ve had your chuckle with Mama and Sarah, use the links below to see what the other bloggers are writing about this month~

My words are:

Practice ~ commit ~ issue ~ level ~ entertain ~ inspire
They were submitted by: http://singlemumplusone.blogspot.com

“Earl Ray, where do you think I got this ring?  Hmmm?  Your Daddy gave it to me.  He loved giving me pretty things, you know that” said Mama as she yanked her hand back from Earl Ray.  “What is your issue with it”? Mama demanded

As Earl Ray aimed his level Sheriff’s stare  at Mama and Sarah, his phone rang and  the next thing Sarah knew Earl Ray was yelling into the phone ” DO NOT even entertain that idea!  You can not commit him.  He’s not crazy.”

Mama and Sarah bit their tongues as they tried not to laugh at the look on Earl Ray’s face.  They knew he was talking to one of the new deputies about poor ol’ JT Morris.  He was a brick shy of a full load and the whole town just accepted him as he was.  He was one of theirs and they looked out for him.

As Earl Ray hung up the phone, Mama asked him “Don’t you have to get to football practice or something?”

“Mama, do not try and change the subject here.  I need to know where Daddy got that ring you’re wearing.”

” I have no idea where it came from.  He came home with it after one of his big cases.  He always did that.  Ignore me for months and then when it was over, bring home something he thought I’d like.  It was his way of saying he was sorry”, Mama said.  “NOW what is the big deal about this darn ring?  Is it going to inspire you to start buying pretty things for Annie?  Mama wanted to know.

Both Sarah and Mama gasped as they listened to Earl Ray explain that the county had given him a budget to update his office and he had started cleaning out old files left in stacks from when Daddy had been Sheriff.  Some were still open cases and Earl Ray though it would be good for his career if he were able to close them.

One of the unsolved cases had been a robbery at Miss Idora’s house back in the early 80’s when Daddy was a brand new Sheriff.    Seems someone had broken in and stolen some of Miss Idora’s jewelry and they had never figured out who stole it and what they did with it.

Being from the founding family in Sea Gulf and the daughter of the Bank President, Miss Idora had more jewelry stashed at her house than most jewelry stores.  Who ever had stolen it had to have known where some of it was.  How else would they have known to look in the flour bin  or the bottom of the coffee tin?

Mama’s ring was one of the missing items from the robbery that took place more than 30 years ago!

As Mama stood there, white as a sheet, just moving her mouth with no words coming out, Sarah was worried she would have a stroke while she and Earl Ray stood there watching her, waiting to hear what she had to say…………………

SSS ~Throwing A Party

Secret Subject Swap

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week, 16 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.  Follow the links below to see what everyone has to say today~

You are gifted with an unlimited budget to throw a dream birthday party. Money is no problem. Who do you throw the party for and tell us the party details??!! Yes, you can throw the party for yourself. The party can only be for one person, unless it’s for twins/triplets/etc.

Love this prompt and it’s one I didn’t have to ponder too long about.  Money’s no problem?  I am going to throw a Birthday Party for ME.  Since there is no time limit on the party It’s going to last 3 days…….Why 3 days?  Well you know the old saying about house guests after that length of time and it also to allows everyone a chance to get there.   Remember, my party, my rules…….

Since money is no object here, we’re having the party at my dream home, which faces a lake and has a huge front porch.   Of course my home is in the South.  Where else would my dream home be?  Guest overflow will be put up at the local hotels and B&Bs.

 

 

Shan went all out on helping me plan it and she found these great tents to use.  It has pink and I do love my touches of pink……..

They  will look great when I get all the ferns and flowering pots hung. Tables are covered in vintage linens. The weather is  perfection for my party.  Light breeze,  78 degrees all 3 days with the sun shining as it only does in the Fall, with a hint of color in the trees.

Wondering about the food?  Well, don’t worry, my Aunt Linda is over-seeing the food.  All Southern staples and she’s had the caterers hopping for weeks to be sure they have it just right.  Since she is the best cook I know, I’m not worried at all.  Hubs and cousin Michael are over seeing all the grilling going on.  They’re both very picky about their grilling so no worries there~

Guessing you are wondering about the music?  A mix of bands and DJs.   I’ve turned that over to Shan, my step-son Michael and  my step-daughter Michelle.  Shan and Michelle know all of my favorite music and they’ll be sure it gets played.  Michael is a wonderful musician and will hire the bands and the DJs.  They’ll have a tough time proving to him that they are worthy to play at my party.

The guest list?  Well here is where it gets crazy!  Mama is right beside me the whole time, along with my step-dad and Hubs, Shan, Drew and Grands.   My siblings, with all the in-laws and assorted nieces and nephews.  All my step-kids, and those that are just kids I know and love. The family members I have lost over the years, grandparents, my Daddy, they’re all there.  Oh, you can’t see them, unless you look at the cardinals or find the pennies, but they’re there.   ALL the aunts and uncles,  the cousins from both sides.   I have a lot of cousins.  (Hubs says I have more than Carter has peanuts)    ALL my friends, those I known forever and some I just met on social media.  All the Belles are there also.  Because I can’t have a party of this magnitude without the Belles.  No money to buy a ticket to get here?  No worries, I have no budget constraints~

The cake?  Well there are quite a few cakes, but only one with candles.

 

 

 

No harsh words, no family feuds, no ya-yaing allowed.  Remember, my party, my rules.  At the end of those 3 days, I will be exhausted and tired as I sit on my porch and look at the lake, smiling because I had my dream party and it was perfect.
