What is "a few days" in bank lingo?

The latest update on the house sale is that two weeks ago the bank told us they would order an appraisal "in a few days".  So right now we are just wondering how much longer this "few days" is before we can actually think about listing the house on the market!

We are being patient, almost too patient I think at times, but we trust that the waiting will bring about a blessing in the end.  Who knows what kind of land we might find. We are beginning to get quite creative in looking into things like land auctions and comparing small towns in Michigan.  It's kind of fun, but also gets old and we just want to move forward in our 5 year plan that feels like it is becoming a 10 year plan. 

There is no reason to take our current blessings for granted. We have no excuse not to live our current situation out of gratitude for the one who gives us each new day.  At the end of the day we work hard at being thankful for each other, food, and covering.

Don't forget to wash your veggies thoroughly before you eat them... unless you are blessed to have an organic farm in your backyard! But you should still wash those...


  1. Where in Michigan are you looking? I live in Michigan so I'm just curious. We actually live in a farming area and might like to connect with you.
