Life, And Other Plans

Well, I had intended writing something worthwhile this weekend. So far that hasn't been able to happen, for various reasons.

After a couple weeks of trying to get over the heartbreak of losing the purchase of the house and property (Weeping Willow) we've been flailing each day, trying to decide what to do.

It's always been easy to figure out. Just get up and go and let's see what happens.

Despite having been married before, we were never part of the decision making as a couple.
We've been a home-owner before, and have moved all over North America, all on our own, countless times...we have always had an easy time of getting up and going.
But now we have James to consider. We can't make these decisions on our own anymore. It's harder than we thought it would be, having to make plans with another person in mind, as part of couple.

So, for now, in the attempt to at least move out of Mother's house, we are looking at real estate in the city where we are currently residing. Everything will be on the back-burner for now. Our plans to have a farm, grow a garden, live in the country away from people. Our future.

At least with our own space, our own home again, we can have a studio to paint in, and have more private space/time for writing again. And we can try to get out of the funk we keep falling into.

We start our new job tomorrow, though we will be unemployed by Christmas, at least it's an opportunity to make some extra cash while we house-hunt locally.
