Not to say we aren't moving, but now we do not know to where. I was just cooking up the chicken for this evening's enchiladas and thought, I have some free, time, I should write a blog post. It might make me feel more settled about this.
I know it will all get sorted out. I know that we will make the move, get settled in, and move on with the daily act of living. But this has been hanging over our head for months now, and just when we think we have some information we can move on, we get hit with news like this.
What news? I won't get into the gory details but someone other than myself spoke up out of turn and the position in MI is not a for sure thing. We may end up going north to Fairbanks AK. Which, we have our passports, and we can make Fairbanks work. Hey, Alaska is home to me. I can make Fairbanks work well and be back near my family and friends. The old dog, I don't' know if she would make that trip with us. When you are a medium sized dog that made it to 18 years of age, not a lot of your day to day living is assured.
Why are we not happy about the Fairbanks idea? Mainly, money. Alaska is expensive. It will cost us thousands more to ship our stuff that far. We will have to drive for days, and arrange for housing there. And when I say it's expensive, I mean a whole heck of a lot more expensive in Alaska than Michigan. We can get acreage and square footage for 10's of thousands of dollars less in Michigan. And I have this silly dream of having some livestock and I prefer to not battle large carnivores for 6 months of the year to keep a couple sheep alive.
But, alas, it will all get sorted out and plans for the future will get shifted and moved around to make room for the reality of whatever happens. And on that note, I need to go check on the chicken...
I was going to end the post there but as I came in with the chicken I realized that I have been light on the photos. Very light. It's just been whining about moving. And due to that there has been little photo taking because all we have been doing is getting ready to move. So, let me show you what we have been doing.
Cleaning. De-cluttering, and then trying to keep the dust buffalo to a minimum with a household of shedding beasts. In other words, a lot of vacuuming.
Now, off to the shower so I can continue the day as we have planned. Yeah right, planned. Ha!
