I have always been an adventure seeker and a mover and a shaker. Spontaneous is my gig. However, after the constant heave-ho of the last two years, I could use a little boredom.
We just passed the one year mark in Wyoming. God has been good to us, and life here is fulfilling in new ways. After living the farming lifestyle for 24 years, it is interesting and novel to have a paycheck deposited every two weeks, like clockwork. Gone are the days of up and down cattle markets, looming bad weather reports, and unpredictability–all of which affect the timing and size of the paycheck. Don’t get me wrong. . . we loved that life and we miss many things about it. The economic instability is not one of those things.
We are also approaching the one year anniversary of opening my shop. This has been an adventure, and one that, at times, has seemed completely crazy. While it has been really fun, it has been difficult. It takes awhile to figure out what you’re doing, gain momentum, and build efficiency. Again, God has been so good and I wouldn’t trade this part of the journey for anything.
Though cancer treatment is done, I am continuing to build strength and deal with permanent damage caused by chemotherapy. My mental fog is lifting, and for that I am so grateful. I am not so easily upset or flustered or frustrated now. I am still physically tired, and my job keeps me on my feet and busy all day. Bit by bit, I’m gaining ground.
With all that is happening and has happened in our lives here, I would love to have a little bit of a rut to settle into. I’d like to be a little bored and have nothing to do. Quiet and uneventful would be welcome.
Eh, who am I kidding? The day that happens, I’ll be stirring up some new thing and getting myself into a new adventure. So, I guess I will enjoy today and wait to see what tomorrow brings.
