August preparations: Imagined conversation 82

on July 30, 2019

Me: Hi Ants.

Anthony: That wasn’t a very enthusiastic ‘hi’, Jules.

Me: I am selling the farm and I am worried that this will hurt you.

Anthony: I’m already dead so nothing can hurt me.

Me: You’re not here, Ming’s moved out, the maintenance is getting ridiculous, and I guess the bottom line is I have fallen out of love with this beautiful place and its quaint old, ailing house.

Anthony: Jules, you do whatever you want and trust your instincts. I left the farm to you so it is your decision.

Me: Thanks Ants. I miss you so much….IMG_4201

Anthony: I will applaud you, whatever you decide, Jules.

    Great to see you back here. I love your imagined conversations! I think Anthony is right on; it is your life, your decision, and you need to live your life however you want to! I wish you good luck and much happiness and fulfillment!

  8. This is a great picture to go with this post Julie. He is applauding your decision to do something for you.

  9. You need to do what you need to do, he understands and wants you to happy and without stress

  10. It is good that you waited, just because that is the right thing to do before making a decision after losing a spouse. Moving on when it feels like a burden will give you new freedom to embrace a new chapter in your life. Best of luck!

    Dear Julie,

    I heard you whisper about this a few months back and now you’re really doing it! I’m happy for you and will be excited to read the next chapter from your new abode. I want to know where you go from here and what you are up to.

    Will you continue to blog or will you write on Facebook from now on? I hardly go the the FB anymore, but I will check in often if that is where you will be. I am also assuming that the move will force you to change your email address??? Do let me know!

    Love you!

    Dear Jules, this is a bit like having a cherished pet put down; you know in your brain that it’s time but your heart whispers doubts. To avoid regrets later, I suggest you take photos of everything that needs maintenance and record the inconveniences of living out on the farm. I always take a video of a declining pet so that later, when I miss him, when I wonder if I acted in haste, I can reassure myself that it was a wise decision.
    Best wishes in your new adventure!

  13. nice to hear you are moving on. best of luck finding a new home

    hi Julie – just wanted to let you know that my daughter and her husband are selling their little house, closer to town in bunbury, if you are looking to move closer. they have moved back to the states and are ready to see their Aussie house. let me know if you would like more info, I’d be happy to forward it to you. (remember they are the ones who are friends with the other Anthony goyder, who grew up in bunbury with my son in law?). no matter either way, just thought this might help in some way, when you are ready – beth

    I hope that the new buyer looks after your farm well.
