Well finally I’ve made the first step to putting my crazy world out for all to see. This should probably come with a warning right from the start. If you fancy yourself part of the spelling and grammer police force, this will slowly kill you. This is my space so I offer no apologies. .. that’s right I’m starting to not apologize for every little thing! Oh and I swear, not like a trucker but like a mother with some attitude lol.
Now quick back story on me. I hate living in the past so let’s condense this to a tolerable amount. I was born into a small world. A little logging town and my parents were well respected business owners. I grew up playing hockey, riding horses and working my ass off for my father as a waitress and dishwasher. I was not the best behaved teenager The day I graduated I ran and never moved back. I’ve had many jobs and careers and on my second marriage. I have 2 children from my first marriage almost 18 yr old son and a 14 year old daughter. We currently live 10 hours away from my ex and his wife and that’s where my 14 year old has chosen to run to stay. My current husband and I have a colorful and darling 7 year old daughter. At this current moment we live in a large city in a beautiful yuppy area in a large 3 level home. Our son has been accepted into a great local university and drafted to play football for a Jr team. He has earned some scholarships and will be paid to play ball. He also has a part time job at a grocery store that he’s held for 3.5 years. Oh and yes the yard has a “white picket” fence lol
Alright enough with the back stories. Let’s get down to the grit of why I’m blogging this soon to be new life style….
Shaun and I HATE this current life style. Mowing the lawn to match the neighbour’s, washing the tiny concrete driveway and watching Harry the Asian neighbor vacume his lawn is slowly killing me. Ya skip the whole hating and pouncing on me about first world problems… we have worked hard. I mean exhausting hours. No fancy trips, no super fancy cars, clothes or dining. We have just worked and worked. Last year saw us losing some very important people in my life. It got me thinking… what the hell are we working for? A half a million dollar house with NO view .. well unless you enjoy watching the neighbor lady behind us squirting her shitzu barking asshole dog repeatedly with a spray bottle. FYI NOT an effective shut the eff up technique. We have a truck that is as much as an asshole as that dog and an older suv….. stop the big jealous anytime lol. Oh and credit card debt and loans and my personal favorite – we owe my parents $. Yes awesome life choices right? So birthed the idea that we need to change this up. We need to start to live. We need to start to work for life enjoyment not living a big fat lie. I need to borrow Harry’s lawn vacuum and suck up this life and start again. Shaun and I have always loved camping, fishing, boating, hunting and skiing. Well I love horses as well but haven’t figured out everything. .. yet..
Welcome to our NEXT STEP…
