I’ve been a little quiet here, but only because I’ve been so incredibly busy everywhere else! In July, I did all of the following:
- Finished my day job;
- So that I can move to the country, to live a few minutes away from my parents; and
- I’ll be self-employed fulltime with Phydeaux Designs.
Wow! Right? Yes, wow!
I may already have a lease in place for a beautiful little house with a huge back yard. Small town USA, with clean air, blue skies, ridiculously hot summers, super cold winters, all four seasons, agriculture galore, but MOST and BEST of all … my parents.
I can’t wait. (Mind you, I can wait for the moving part, but that’s part of the gig.)
I can’t wait to live a hop, skip and jump away from my parents. You can always get a new job, but your family, that’s another thing altogether. I will never regret making this decision and I think it’s the most important – and the best – decision I could possibly make right now.
That said, there aren’t a lot of jobs in my field where I’m moving to. I could get any number of jobs, but I’m not that keen on working long hours for about half of my usual salary.
So, another easy decision: fulltime Phydeaux. As of Monday, Phydeaux is my fulltime job! I’m super excited with infinite ideas (although time is still finite!). I will be able to seriously expand my yarn and fiber dyeing enterprise when I move, which is really exciting (no more kitchen dyeing!).
I’m a veteran mover, but am hoping to keep this move simple: get rid of a lot of stuff before moving, hire someone else to do all the heavy lifting, and keep it stress free for my kitties. Any moving tips for me??
