Everytime I think we're going to get the house, something happens and I have to backpedal. Well, Eddie lost his job and now we have to postpone buying the house - once more. Hopefully something will turn up soon before it gets vandalized, again. There is already an emaciated pit bull chained to the backyard and signs of squatters in the carriage house.


  1. UGH! That truly sucks. I found your blog through Door Sixteen and was getting inspired by all the Newburgh excitement (I live in Beacon across the river).

    I hope things work out for you and the bad is just a speedbump.

  2. Geez, I'm really sorry. I've followed your blog for a couple of weeks, as I am considering a future move to Newburgh. It's a lovely house, and I wouldn't give up on it. I'm sure something will work out.

    I'm in the process of looking at the logistics of homeownership in the area, and was esp. interested in your post about possible grants. I have a few questions about where you found information, and would appreciate if you could get back to me at, if you have a chance.

    Thanks, and best of luck in these trying times,

  3. Thanks for the support! We're definitely still scrambling to figure out a way to buy the house.

  4. I'm so sorry to hear that! I'm sure you'll be back on track in no time!

  5. So sorry to hear it, Eddie & Sherry! Kisses and good wishes from Berlin...
