Hello readers. I am just dropping in to let you know that I'll be extending my blog break indefinitely.
First, I want to say that all is well. I just need to shift my focus away from blogging for the time being.
This year has been one of the better ones for us financially, thanks largely to that big out-of-town project Shane's been working on. We're very thankful Shane's been working steadily, but again, largely because of that job, this has also been one of the most chaotic years we've experienced. Some days it feels like all I can do to keep up with the all changes. I need some serious down-time to figure out where I am amidst the confusion and where I want to be in terms of family, projects and goals.
Also, after writing posts for the past four years (my first here was on September 10, 2007), I feel as if I've accomplished most of what I was trying to accomplish and have written most of what I wanted to write regarding debt reduction, frugality, and cooking. I just don't have much else to say.
As the focus of our home life moves slightly away from debt reduction and "bottom-line" frugality, and moves more toward homesteading, green living, simple living and healthier food choices, I may find that I do have more to say. Whether I say anything...and whether I say it here or somewhere else on the Web...remains to be seen.
I refer to my own posts here often, especially for recipes, and I hope others do, too. For that reason, I am leaving Real Life Living online. Meanwhile, I'll still be in touch with you on your blogs and on Facebook. If we aren't "friends" yet, feel free to send me a request.
