Somewhere Over the Distant Rainbows

Somewhere over the rainbows, there is a better life, a better circumstance.
But once we get over there will it really be better than what we are dealing with now?

Yes.

Granted the grass isn't always greener, but over my rainbows it is.

My rainbows are the cascades. Over the mountains and through the woods.
Where we are building our house.
Our future home.
Our new life.





















Travis, Charlie ( our puppy) and I went over to our property this weekend to do some more work on our house. We finally got water and power. Its a slow process but its going to be so worth it.

We were worried about charlie coming with us, and not being a leash, but he was wonderful. He never went more than 20 feet from us the whole time! We are glad that we brought him. He is going to love all the freedom living out there.

















Charlie was trying to help, Travis out. Very cute :D






















We have a big D9 Cat over at the property. Its huge!  Charlie didn't like it too much. We were in the trailer when Travis rode past it and Charlie went crazy and started barking very angrily. We think he believes that its hurting Travis. He does the same thing with Travis' bike because its so loud.






















































Travis had some well deserved fun on top of the tower. I was getting a little nervous because it wasn't in the ground all the way. But I got some fun pictures out of it.

It was sad to come home. We wanted to quite our jobs and move out there on saturday.
Its hard to live here with his parents. We are treated like children.
But it'll be worth it, saving our money so we can have our house finished.
We just want the insantiy to end, now.

More patience. 
We'll get over our rainbows soon. 


A better life.
A better circumstance.

  16. We did the living with parents thing for about 6 months, while work was being done to our condo, after we first got married. In fact, we came back from our honeymoon and went straight to his parents...so I have been there. Once you get a place of your own, you will look back && hopefully be more appreciative of them, than before. I know I was. Be thankful for loving parents that are willing to help you all out during this time. Many cant be so lucky.

    Happy SITS! :)

  73. I am envious of you for getting to build a house in such a lovely place. I've been feeling very cooped up by the city lately. I would love to move to a small town somewhere if we could figure out how to make the $$$ work, but it doesn't seem very likely. Visiting from SITS a day late.

    ReplyDelete
  74. And I told my son yesterday, you're just a kid. He's 11. I also told him that when he's 25, i'd say, "you're just a kid" And likely when he's 41 as well.

    Parents treat us like children. Good luck getting into your own space. the property is beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  75. It looks like that'll be a great location. I hope you've been able to make some good progress since you posted this.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Your dog is so cute. (I have 5 so I am an authority on these things. *g*)

    I know it is rough now but so smart of y'all to do what you need to so you will be living your dreams sooner rather than someday like many do.

    ReplyDelete
  77. your dog is adorable! i would love to have such a large property!!
