Been a crazy week around the homestead and part of why I have not been updating . Mind you, it is not a bad crazy but one that will require major adjustments on the part of both the manthing and myself. He has gotten a new job but one with some crazy hours attached to it and what seems like will be a lot of traveling and time away from the homestead.
Last week he got a call from a place that he had sent his resume to over the last two years a couple, few time and they wanted an interview with him an hour later. He returned and they wanted a DMV report so we went and got that, dropped it back by the company and was told he would start the next day. The Lord blessed us yet again and just on time too. It is awesome how well he truly takes care of us. We had just 5 weeks left of unemployment left before manthing was going to be what has been dubbed a "99 weeker."
The first day he worked over 14 hours, so much for a slow break in period after a dang near two year vacation. There were a few issues we had with things and were not sure if the new job was going to work out but the bossman called, things got worked out (we think) and oh by the way can you go out of town for five days this week.
This morning, bright and early the manthing pulled out for his first full week back at work.A week with a flushing indoor pooper, hot and running water, air conditioning, GMO additive filled garbage known as food, an idiot box, a real bed and work. Things we have had no part of over the last two years. I am home with all the critters, school, a hundred million tons of veggies to put back and all the chores of the homestead. It is definitely going to take some getting used to and acclimating ourselves to this new situation we are in. I do not know if either one of us will " like" the situation we are now in but it will give us a bit more financial security over time and give him more experience in the same, but new, field that he has already worked in for 25 years. It will be interesting to see how we both adjust to our new roles over time and it sure will be quiet around here.
