Feel free to ask yourself WTF?! I did. Well after ugly crying for 2 days. Usually people do this the other way around while The Jeffersons 'moving on up' plays in the background. Naw man. Not us. Somehow in less then 3 weeks we will have sold almost all of our processions and downsized to a much simpler life.
and thats it. talk to you later.
Ok Ok let me explain. So the husband works away, a lot. In the winter time he will be out of the country for 3-4 week tours and although I get sick to my stomach thinking about it (gah planes!!), I will more then likely be on one of the tours with him in Australia for 3wks. So we had to ask: why do I practically live in the big home that we rent, all by myself? Makes no sense. This way its sorta like my cute retro trailer that this hot guy (the husband) gets to visit me at every 3 wks .. when you look at it that way its a pretty good deal.
So we concocted a plan. Well ok my husband did as I was dragged along sobbing, but then realized its actually genius. And really stupid and scary and random and rad and all that mixed into one. Basically my parents have a cute little farm out in the county and on that farm they have a cute little vintage air stream trailer. Score. So this winter I shall annoy the crap out of my mom and be there every day [enter evil laugh here]. Really the plan is that in doing this for just 6mo. (oct-mar) we will walk away practically 100% debt free and with a pretty damn nice down payment to purchase our first home. Seems pretty swell, yeah?
Technically we don't have to live in a trailer, my parents do have room in their house. We just want to. We don't have kids and when else will we ever get a chance to do something like this? You might be curious about my studio and all that, well its taken care of and I have a spot ready at the old folks home. And by old folks home I don't mean retirement center, I mean my parents house. badabing shes got jokes today people.
So there you have it. We're selling anything and everything that has no meaning to our life, packing up the rest and when we are ready we will start over. In a more simple and conscious way. The best part is that we will start somewhere new. I feel surprisingly calm about it all and am pretty stoked to see what its like to not pay bills anymore, I hope I dont like it so much that I live in this thing forever. Ha. Joking.
I will totally keep up with things here so you can follow along on the ride, wish us luck!
