I fell off the face of the blog earth. I don’t think anyone really cares (and I don’t mean this in a depressing way. I just write for myself a lot these days.) Anyway we finished our road trip and I went silent.
I went silent because I didn’t know what to think or say about finishing the road trip. We lived 3 months on the road because we didn’t know where to live otherwise. Now we’ve landed back in North Carolina, where it all began. We didn’t expect this at all, but here we are.
I left off right when we arrived in New York City for the first time since moving. (We also had a lovely weekend stay in Washington D.C. and it was beautiful and exhausting.)
Getting over Brooklyn is a constant challenge and I don’t think I’ll ever get over Brooklyn.
But we both have jobs now that have benefits like medical and retirement, so… We’re down south for the next few years, at least.
Now that that’s out of the way, I’ve jumped full force into the pool of environmental care. I tried to get a job in it, but two weeks of sitting on my couch made me so bored that I found employment elsewhere. I spend a lot of free time posting on Instagram about eco-friendly practices and hoping someone out there is listening. I’m taking a beekeeping class next week and, if you’re lucky, you’ll get to know one of NC’s newest master beekeeper’s soon.
So that’s it. For the next two weeks, I’ve challenged my household to eat at the average U.S. poverty line food budget, and if all goes well, I’m going to share a meal plan and grocery list and preparation time/effort here. Because I’m tired of having to pay for and/or download meal plans, ya know? I won’t make you do that. So, stay tuned. I hope I have something good to share.
