Take the money and run

I don't like knowing that if we sell our house, cars, and stuff, we could easily run away to Thailand or be nomads for a long time. Every day seems to be an exercise in "just hang in there" lately. I know that the longer we wait and save and plan, the better it will be while we're gone, but five years (current timeline) seems like an eternity.

Until then, I desperately need to start taking my own advice.

Happy to spring forward Monday

A summer walk in the PNW
I love, love, love that time of year when the clocks jump ahead, and all of a sudden my days get a whole lot brighter. It's been tough adjusting to the schedule at my new(ish) job, especially during the winter. I'm usually in the office until at least 6 PM every day, which usually means spending nearly the whole week without daylight. 

The last couple weeks have been STRESSFUL (hence my absence!), but I have to say, walking out after a long, hard day to sunshine is amazing. What's even better is the walk around the neighborhood my husband and I had a chance to take with our dogs who are just as wound up as we are. 

It's only March, so we have a long way to go before the good stuff (HEAT!!) comes in the summer, but the timing of this daylight savings time business was just about perfect to keep me moving.
