This house selling thing is for the birds.....

I'm not sure why I'm discouraged before we have even really begun. I think its because it seems to be the one big obstacle to us moving back home.

We've had a few lookers, but for one reason or another we've not met the new family who wants to take over our dream house. I promise to even throw in the puppy.

We do have the listing posted on MLS, which is where people who are working with realtors can find home information. We hope that pulls in some bites.

Ben says I need patience, I think he's probably right. Patience has never been my strong suit, but I'm working on my faith.

Regardless, we could use some prayers if you have any to spare.

Wheatland, ND Home for Sale


Wheatland, ND Home for Sale, a set on Flickr.

Unfortunately, about the time we are ready for our big reveal of the house, we're putting it back on the market. This is the photos we took for the listing we are putting together. We truly love this house/property and cannot believe we are going to have to say goodbye....but we are committed to making the move closer to family. In the long run - we know we are making the best decision. (And we are very excited to be home!) Hopefully we can make another home ours soon!

In honor of my new playlist.....

I know many people have been checking the blog for an important announcement - but you'll have to wait a few more days....but in the meantime.

In honor of my new playlist, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite artists new just happens to be my new ringtone.

I'd take her new album "Hundred More Years" if anyone thinks I deserve a small gift. Hint Hint Ben!

P.S. If the video doesn't work - visit this site.

Meat Mythcrushers

I seem to rarely find time to talk about the industry I'm so passionate about.....but Ben forwarded me a tool/talking piece I cannot help but share.

Visit, to see what I'm talking about. I know my ag-rovate friends will find this particularly interesting as we continue to get the message out there about safe food production, healthy lifestyles and showcasing the family farms that make it all possible.

The work is a collaborative effort between the American Dietetic Association, American Meat Science Association, Am. Veterinary Medical Assoc., Council for Ag. Science & Technology, and Institute of Food Technologists. Kudos to those organizations for providing a united front! And share with any producer or consumer you think will benefit!
