December 26, 2007: Hurry up and wait…Surreal – Day 2

  The day started early – 6 a.m.  I couldn’t sleep of course!  At 8 a.m. Tony came by the apartment and picked me up.  I was excited…bouncing off the walls.  Tony and Joey were trying to keep me calm.  I knew we had a lot of phone calls ahead – I didn’t know how many though!  By 10:30 a.m. we had made about as many phone calls as we could possibly make.  We are now waiting for a return call.  It sounds to me like we are just steps away from figuring some of this out.

  If that good?  Is that bad?  We just don’t know.   This is all very surreal.  The word of the day – surreal!!!!

  We went up to the farm this afternoon and took some pictures and had the "what if" conversation.  Talked about where we would build and what we would build.  Lot of dreaming going on!!!!  Hard not to.  I am so excited.  This will certainly be a let-down if it doesn’t work out.  I know if it is meant to be then it is meant to be.  Just have to wait.

  I did find out that the people who moved out of the house didn’t want to be there anymore.  They had a lot of issues with the house on the property.  So that is sort of good because at least nobody was forced out in a bad way.

  I took these photos below.  THIS IS THE VIEW OF MY LIFETIME!  GROWING UP ON THIS HILL – THIS IS WHAT HELPED ME FALL IN LOVE WITH WEATHER!  I think my excitement is building to a point where I might just explode into a million little pieces!!!!  Walking around the property today just reminded me of being a boy on the farm.  Walking the fields and looking for arrowheads.  It is so peaceful out there.  We could hear geese flying over.  This is a dream…someone wake me up!!!!

  As Brett Bloomston used to say "Patient young Jedi – patience" 

Heading for the office this morning…Tony leads the way

Oddly enough I found my cell phone that I lost a year or two ago while
photographing storm damage to a corn field on our old farm!

Me on the farm!!!!

View of the farm and the hill on it!!!!

  I am 100% freaked out by all of this!  I am anxious anxious anxious.  Trying to just pass the time away and keep my mind on other things.  Almost impossible at this point.
