FOUR jobs, THREE vehicles, TWO boats, and ONE grand plan. Whew! We’ve been busy!
Where do I start? The biggest, yes, we are juggling FOUR jobs. Just the two of us. Long gone are our relaxing days of watching the tide roll in!
Both of us stepped back into our pre-cruising jobs a few months ago. In addition, we have both started our own business adventures. Keith has always wanted to buy and flip boats. He is now co-owner of a sweet Island Packet that he has been laboring away the last few months. This one isn’t even on the market yet, and he is looking forward to another boat. Oh boy.
I also have recently launched my own business. The amount of work has been incredible, and I can’t wait to tell you all about it. I’m going to give it its own post in a few days. For now, I will just say “hello portable profession!”
So, that covers the four jobs and two boats. The three vehicles is a much less interesting story and can be summed up by saying one was a lemon. Boo. And a grumbly observation that living in the US is horribly expensive, even having a job is expensive.
Now we are down to ‘One Grand Plan.’ You know I always need a plan. Our plan is titled “Project Blue Space.” We named it after an article that one of our friends shared stating that living in a place with visual access to an open body of water is more restorative and calming than any other. Well, I’ve always known that! Duh. But, ‘Blue Space’ has become our buzz word. As in, we need some. I’d share all the juicy details of our plan, except we don’t have them fully fleshed out. It’s a scribbly pencil outline really. That, and I am slowly learning my lesson that plans will change. Instead of taking the time (that I don’t have) to list what we are going to do, I’ll stick to posting our milestones as we meet them.
Now, at this point in a post, I usually upload a handful of pretty pictures. I sadly I don’t have a single one. Not even of the Falcon Heavy launch that happened right over our heads yesterday. We were both at work (the ones with bosses). The six sonic booms SOUNDED and FELT impressive.
It’s okay, though…. #BlueSpace
P.S. If you are a co-worker reading this, we don’t need to talk about this. That could be awkward.
