I've yet to break free of the vortex I've been caught up in. I feel like I'm paddling like mad but haven't really gotten anywhere. There's always today, perhaps I can finally break free.
Life's a changin'. That's the root of situation. As it does, we've had to make some adjustments. My wife has just changed jobs. After years of working from a home office and spending much of her life on airplanes and in hotels in cities all over the country and Canada, she's stepped down and taken a local position. It's a significant blow to our personal economy and we'll be making adjustments. She's looking forward to the 9-5 routine, at home in her own bed every night. Me, I'm going to have to work a bit harder.
She's taken a week of vacation between jobs and that's been my prime distraction. As her life transitions from living on the road to moving back into her home, she's been getting her house in order. Neglected chores have been tackled. The honey-do list has been whittled down. Her home office has been dismantled. Mine has had a makeover. Finally, the dust seems to be settling.
I've made little progress this week towards getting back on the road and there are new logistics involved. Next week will be the first opportunity to devise new systems to insure the animals are cared for, the household is maintained, and we adapt to me being on the road more while she keeps the home fires burning (that reminds me, it's time get this winters firewood layed in before the price goes up). That's a good thing overall, I should finally be able to move ahead more rapidly. As soon as this spate of rain passes, I'll head back to Virginia and wrap up this first of the new maps.
Just a few more chores to tackle today, and hopefully an afternoon spent laying out the routes for my travels. We've got company staying the weekend so there will be little accomplished then. I suppose I've had a little vacation myself though I'm eager to get back to work. The fall season looms on the horizon - got to be ready for it.
