Ok, so life has been one crazy joy ride after another……here’s a brief update.
The holidays came and went without much to do. This was actually a blessing in disguise, as it allowed for plenty of rest and relaxation for what was to come.
This semester at school is completely insane. I’ve taken on some extra responsibilities with curriculum writing for my district, as well as teaching a course at a university here in town. In addition to that, I’ve made up my mind. I’m officially relocating. I can’t say as to where exactly yet, but it will be out of state…..still waiting on a couple of pieces to fall into place before I can announce where I’m heading.
All of that being said, I haven’t been cooking anything worthy of posting. Honestly. I’ve been keeping things SUPER basic….with a few tricks up my sleeve here and there. The biggest reason for that is that I don’t like to junk up my kitchen or stink up my house. Selling my house has been priority #1, and to do that efficiently, people don’t want to truly see a lived in kitchen or smell bacon in the air………although I know a HUGE selling point for me would be Eau De Bacon, but apparently that’s a no no for most buyers. Whatever, I don’t judge.
Living in my house has become a relative term. I feel like it’s still mine, but it’s already gone. Like I’m living in a museum of what used to be my home. It’s an indescribably bizarre feeling. Buying that house 5 years ago was my way of asserting my adulthood. Proving that even though I wasn’t engaged, getting married, or spawning children, dammit, I was a grown up. So I went and got myself a mortgage. And that’s all 30 days from being over. Needless to say, I’ve been a bit weird about it.
In spite of everything, I can’t help but be crazy stupid excited about the future. I have been having moments where I start to freak out about where I’m going to live, how I’m going to pay rent, how the hell I’m going to afford a CrossFit membership somewhere, how I’m going to buy groceries….but in the end, I don’t care. It’s gonna happen. I can feel it.
So here’s to new adventures! Whichever direction they take me……and oh yeah, this happened too:
Peace, Love, and Paleo!
