And a lot of change has occurred in this Otakus life.
Shortly after getting back from Alaska, my employer posted a job opening that was pretty close to my dream job. I applied for it, and got it, and have been working really hard at it for the last three weeks. Which is why there have been few posts here of late. For the first time in a decade I am working fairly regular hours.
When we came back from Alaska we really raced back, and it was for two reasons: one so I could spend my birthday with my beloved and saintly wife - who lets me do crazy things like go to Alaska for a month - and two, to close on a house. It seems the bank wouldn't let my wife buy the house without my signature.
That's right, I bought a house. With two pretty kayaks nestled in the backyard. So if you are paying attention, I may have become an adult. I own a house, and have a semi-normal job (okay, I am still in outdoor education, so it isn't THAT normal). But do you know what buying a house means? I'll tell you.
It means you buy stuff. I now own a weed wacker, can you believe it? I have had to buy a number of things for both the house, and working on the house, and if you read here a lot you know that I am a minimalist, and that it really hurts to add things to my personal tally of items, and so, that means that it is time for a purge!
Starting September 1st I will be doing the purge I did a while back. It is called the minimalist challenge and I first read about it here. We are going to try and do it again. Are you with me? If you are, leave a comment here, or like this post on Facebook. I will post the occasional picture of the stuff I am getting rid of.
Now I am wondering if getting rid of things the previous owner left behind counts....hmmm.
What do you think?
