Absolutely thrilled for you! Wonderful to see yourself and your child's dream come true!
The end of July marks 4 happy years of my own journey with the USDA Rural Direct
program resulting in home ownership. I had so many nail biting twists and turns, it
was incredibly harrowing at times. I used the listing agent as my realtor, she was glad
to see closing as much as I was and just as happy to be done with me.
In my case, I live on a small lake with lush trees and lots of wildlife. This morning,
I noticed the ceiling fan wobbling and making a lob, lob, lob and thunk, thunk sound.
Then something brown came out, it looked like a hand without fingers. It was a
snake! It fell down to the floor, and I casually picked it up with a dust bin and a broom.
Relocated the skinny little thing outside. I live in snake country, so I have learned how
to identify and it was not poisonous. I thought it was cute. I told my boyfriend. He is
completely freaked out, and thinks I may have a snake infestation in my attic so we
will have to inspect and find out.
The joys of home ownership, ugh. I am still eternally grateful. Good luck, and I
hope I did not scare anyone.
