But then that company changed from direct sales to wholesale.
I went back to freelancing -- picking up odd jobs like a handyman who figures "I can probably do that."
And for a long time, I thought about blogging. I missed it. But starting over is hard.
I think I was trying to sort out what I wanted a new blog to be, and without a clear path, I just stayed where I was. I have a tendency to do that -- to put up road blocks because I am scared. You might too.
For instance, four months ago, I started this project. I wrote a quick post about loving our house, but knowing it wasn't our forever home because we wouldn't be able to have chickens.
About a month after writing that post, I woke up on a Monday and without thinking at all, I made some phone calls. A few days after that, I was ordering chicks from a feed store, borrowing a brooder, and researching coop designs.
I'm still think that this house is a temporary stop-over for us. And I still love it.
I love it a little more because of these three girls.
And maybe at that point, you end up with some livestock, in the back yard of a little house that is becoming more a home each and every day.
