It has been a rough summer for me. I’ve taken the last month off from blogging because the only things I wanted to talk about (at length) were my work related grievances. Instead of dwell on the negative any more than I already have, I will summarize in a one short sentence and then move on: work is not so good lately. That’s all.
What that means for me is that my professional life is once again in a state of upheaval and I will have decided to move on . But it’s mighty hard trolling through job ads when you don’t want to relocate to a new cubicle in a new office with a new computer to stare at for eight hours a day. It’s a song I’ve been singing for years. Finally, I’ve decided to do something about it.
After much talk with my husband who is equally miserable living life from the confines of a desk, we’ve agreed that we are willing to work our asses off to escape and at least take a shot at living our dreams, which are conveniently compatible. He wants to start a microbrewery and I want to start a homestead. It won’t happen overnight but we’re teaching ourselves what we’ll need to know to succeed. It’s a start and that makes me very hopeful.
What does that mean around here? Well, it’s not that I’ve given up on my goals. More like I’ve finished prioritizing and refining them. I probably won’t be doing my monthly check-ins anymore (I never liked those much anyway). I’ll be committing myself to many more projects. More gardening, more sewing, more back-to-basics logistics. I will be putting it here to keep track of our progress and maybe to help someone else starting out on this sort of journey. So, here we go!
