In Four Years


In order for this idea to fly, I have now planted the seed with the people who need to say yes in four years:

  • Mr. UpCyclist
  • Lil O
  • My department chair
  • My director
  • My dean
If you are looking for me in 2017, I will be taking a leave of absence for one year.  Mr. UpCyclist will be graduated from his doctoral program.  Lil O will be graduating from her awesome school.  And my family and I - Mr. U, Lil O, Jedi and my excited self - will be piling into a trailer (maybe an RV) and traveling North America for a year homeschooling (or is that trailer schooling?).  We will be enjoying life, seeing the sights, being a family, and living on the road.

I can barely contain myself with excitement, but I have plenty to keep me busy for the next four years and much money to be saved.

Here's to big dreams!

Jen

PS - See those pins above?  Aren't they divine?  I found them in Breckenridge this summer and knew Lil O and I needed them.

  3. Wow, so exciting! You have to have a long-term goal so that you can watch it grow closer by marking the days on the calendar, and it all begins with the dream. My brother and sister-in-law are currently following their dream after the 5-year plan played out; they have quit their jobs, sold all of their belongings, rented their Annapolis home, got the home-schooling kits and have sailed their 43' boat down to the Carribbean where they now dwell as much happier and freer folk. Their son is 10 and daughter is 8. Yep...it CAN be done. Good luck with your dream! Chris Resh :)

    1. Chris - That was just the story my soul needed to hear. Do you think your brother and SIL would share their story with me? I'd like to mine for some tips and ideas.

      All the best,
      Jen

  8. In conclusion, when you have to utilize a Payday credit supplier, you will require a few things. Most Payday advance organizations expect you to have one or a few pay check stubs to confirm that you will have the assets to pay them back.

  9. Dissimilar to customary credits from expansive banks and commonplace individual advance administrations from the past, these no faxing required payday advances don't require a considerable measure of documentation.
