Just remember that we are just now in the very start of a selling season.That means there will be TONS of other houses for sale. Hell- Just today I pulled up homes in Nashville in the 150,000 and below price range.... over 7,184 homes! So... there are MANY already available. So hold tight, be patient, and wait until you find something that workd. Simple words of advice: DO NOT buy something you cannot afford and all will be good.

Northcountrygirl, your poem is great. Does it have a melody? It's a lot better than the garbage Nashville is producing nowadays.

Hey!! Thanks so much!! No unfortunately it dosen't have a melody. Feel free to give it one though. I can't write songs only poems (sigh). Poems are easier you don't have to deal with a chorus

Hey Ridgerunner! Here's another one just for you.

I woke up this morning and
Fell in love with you again
Had this overwhelming feeling
I havenít felt since way back when

Looking down upon your face
Took my breath away
It was almost as if I hadnít seen
Who you were until today

Weíve been together all these years
Even when life got in our way
And I donít think I understood
Till I looked at you today

Now suddenly itís very clear and I finally understand
That I am in a real love
With a man who works with his hands

Greasy prints left on my fridge
Muddy foot prints cross my floor
Just came in from working on your truck
And forgot to shut the door

Scruffy beard and baseball cap
Work boots and a working tan
But your touch still makes me shiver
Every time you take my hand

Some men have to buy you diamonds
Cause they donít know who you are
From a junkyard wreck and your two hands
You built me my dream car

You just have to look at me for me to understand
That I am in a real love
With a man who works with his hands

Donít have a need for suits and ties
Or driving luxury cars
Or chasing other women
Your happy hourís not in bars

Say everything you do you do for me
And I believe itís true
Cause you would never lie to me
And I believe in you

You still hold on to me at night
So I can feel you care
You listen when I want to talk
No matter when, no matter where

I donít need a lightening strike to make me understand
That I am in a real love
With a man who works with his hands

Working too many hours for too many days
So I have what I need
And then for friends, spending time
Turning wrenches till knuckles bleed

If itís broke I know youíll fix it
Cause thereís nothing you canít do
And when my worldís turned upside down
Your there to see me through

And you still find time to tease the kids
And play with all the cats
Find time to take a break with me
From raking leaves and fixing flats

I wouldnít take a thing in trade because I understand
Thereís nothing like a real love
With a man who works with his hands

Now you can take my bank accounts
Take my clothes and all my shoes
You can take everything I own
And I know I still canít lose

Cause Iíve got a real love
And heís doing all he can
Maybe rough, sometimes tough, love in his heart
Heís every inch a man


And I know Iíll be all right Ďcause Iím safe in the hands
Of the never ending real love
Of a man who works with his hands

I feel blessed. This forum makes me realize just how lucky my family have been to live here. I couldn't imagine raising my family any other place.
There is nothing quite as peaceful as sitting on your porch, coffee in hand and watching as the sun comes up. I don't want pictures of it, that is mine alone..some things you just can't share.
