Road less traveled
I know in the past that I had mentioned that monthly traveling for work looked like it was on hold for awhile, well as it turns out it became permanent. It's too bad really, yes I did want a break from trailer living but it's hard to give up a disposable income for barely enough to survive. So here I am trying to relearn to budget and manage on a third of what was. For seven years despite my complaining about the chaos of travel life I did love seeing and exploring the many places the job took us, I will miss it. It's now been nearly eight months and I have had the chance to try my hand at new things. In April I decided once again to try my hand as chicken wrangler, gardener, and food preserver. It has been a pleasure to try all these new ventures, well old but dusted off, ventures anyway. With all the changes in lifestyle it has gotten me thinking that this current blog may not be right for me any longer and starting a new one that is more for the green thumb, canning/jelly making, chicken wrangler might be in order. In time we shall see. I have had many trials already and wished that I had taken the time to write them down. Maybe in doing so I would not only learn from my mistakes and have reminders that the things I have tried didn't always work, but also have those of you who do read my humble blog may have the opportunity to see what others have tried and have the chance by being better informed to not make the same mistakes. Even if I do decided that I want to start a new blog I will more than likely keep this one as I still have my crazy furry "kids" and we do still travel, while the road trips are now limited to the river rather than six hundred miles each time there is always an interesting story, never a dull trip with my kiddies.
