Honestly, this has been a very difficult decision for me.  I have decided to place building on our domain for the time being.  I have spent an amazing amount of time looking at all the different types of homes that do well in this hot humid climate.  I have spent time looking at new building techniques and ways to live "green".  I have spent way too much time visioning the future on our domain.  

The truth is that when I think about adding anything else to my plate, I am overwhelmed.  My goal when I first bought the land was to drill a well and plant my fruit trees since they will take a few years to produce, but because the real estate market has bee soooo bad lately, my county has dropped the impact fees to half.  This could save us about $5000.00.  That is a lot of money, so I kicked it into high gear and found the dome home we could afford to do little at a time to start building before the impact fees go back to $10,000 again.  

At this point, my body gave out and I got the worst sinus infection I have had in years.  Thank  you body for having much more sense than I.  So after lots of prayer, I have decided to hold off on building and go back to the original idea of drilling a well and planting trees.  I feel much more peaceful.  In a few years I will have my family completely out of debt both at the office and home.  I will put money into some retirement mutual funds and build a bit of a cushion.  When I get closer to retirement and money is easier, I will build.  In the meantime, I will plant and let everyone know as things begin to grow.

Just seeing these two blog posts now....wish there was a way to have new blog posts come into my email, if there is I can't find it.  If the initial blog post came in, the same as new discussions, then I can opt to follow or not.  But if the original doesn't show up, it's easy to miss it altogether.  If anyone knows of a setting to remedy this for me, I'm all ears!

So exciting to have two Official Kin's Domains in our County, yes Bernice?  I am visioning the Domains stretching from here to there...In fact I'm ready to make a "Manifesting Machine" as guided by Leonid...:-)

If you build it, they will come?  I spoke to the building department in Bartow and they have extending the decreased impact fees for another year and a half.  So maybe we will get things going by then.  My goal is to be completely debt free (mortgage included) in two years.  If I did not have the dream of the domain, cutting corners and watching every penny would not be so much fun.  I have turned all this into a game to get my life in order.  Thank you Anastasia!
