    Sounds exciting and I hope everything works out for yall. But the hilighted portion would have ended the conversation for me right there and Id shown them the door


    well thanks for editing it for me. I just spent several minutes locating this thread so I could change it.

    Congratulations on making it this far; I'm sure you'll be a great representation of what homesteaders are all about.

    Please keep us updated and I really want to see the episode that your family is in! :)

    Best of Luck and I hope it stops raining for the filming. :angel:

    so if the background checks come out OK are you in for sure? Or does that put you in the final running and then they'll decide for sure after they get the background checks in? Oooo I'm so excited. Good luck.

    :)

    They probably want the lock on the bedroom door of the "new wife" and the guns out of the house because towards the end of it all your family will want to kill her! :D

    Let us know when it will air. It should be interesting to watch. And don't worry about coming off as "freaks" all of us are like you so we wouldn't notice!!! :rolleyes:

    Oh My! I've never known anybody, even on line, that's wanted to put themselves through something like this. I'm excited for you, but aren't you a little on edge about going to somebody elses family? They will probably send you to some yuppies house that represents everything you despise.

    Keep us posted.

    I'm not worried about going there at all.. maybe I can teach them a thing or two. The only thing I'm even a little worried about is leaving my family w/ another woman. I hope she makes it out alive lol

    I'm in awe of you. I'd NEVER be able to do it -- so I admire you greatly for trying it. Have you SEEN some of those shows? The "city" kids are always rotten little brats! Good luck to you -- keep us informed of when it's to air -- I like the idea of knowing someone who did it and survived!

    I love that show!! This is to neat, I have never "known" anyone on TV before. I think the show loves conflict so it might be a crazy two weeks, but it is such a short time in your life, how fun. Good luck and be sure to keep us posted on when you are on..

    Also, remember that the "new mom" decides where the money is spent. If she wants you to get counseling, you must do so.

    All I'm saying is you may not get this new barn after all....

    I enjoy that show. What I do find interesting is that in general the "unusual" family is the most well adjusted. I am sure they will send some princess to your place that has never taken care of a goldfish, let alone farm animals. It should be interesting.

    You may get quite the vacation out of this, if the lady you replace is a loafer. I am sure you will end up quickly bored if that is the case.

    Good luck and have fun.
