Sorry to inform you: still alive. ;)
Just a quickie "we're not dead!" post again. There's just not much going on that's long-form blog post worthy lately. Our main project, if you could call it that, is sort of "downsizing" or "simplifying" our lives. Nothing so dramatic as Cage Free Family's downsize, but for us, it's a big deal. (We're even contemplating selling our TV... >.>)
Mainly it's been identifying "stuff" we own that hasn't been used in any fashion for a year or more, and then deciding what to do with it. Sometimes it's so low-value that we donate it to Goodwill or other sources. Other times, the item has more value, so we sell it - usually via Craigslist. We're contemplating having a yard sale of sorts soon - or at least a day when we'll be mostly home, where we put stuff outside with "FOR SALE" signs on it, and people will come and ask. That's safe to do here, still, thankfully.
Longterm, we've been talking over acquiring some land a little ways out of town, or perhaps an existing house with land. That would get us outside the (sorry, it has to be said) jackbooted rules of in-town. And we don't really need 1,397 square feet just for us two and our animal family.
We've taken a few short and medium length road trips on the motorcycle so far, and as weather gets warmer, we'll be taking more. We also traded in the Kia Soul on a new Prius and have been enjoying the quieter ride and the far, far lower gasoline cost.
Anyway. That's all that's been going on. Peaceful and fun, but probably somewhat boring to outsiders. :)
