As I mentioned recently, sometimes it might be time to give diet and exercise a rest, especially if this frees up energy (physical or mental) to deal with other important activities.
This is one of those times for me. I’m making a major change: I’ve bought a house in NW Pennsylvania (about an hour north of Pittsburgh) and will be moving there in Oct/Nov (between reno and trips between PA and DC, there’s no one “official” move date ;).
While I joke about this being boonie PA, it’s not exactly off the grid … I’m on a county road and there’s shopping (including a Panera and my new go-to’s Lowes and Home Depot!) just a couple of miles away. But it’s definitely very close to farm country, which includes a thriving Amish community.
This is a return of sorts for me (I grew up in Pittsburgh) and I’m excited to be closer to my family there. I’m also very fortunate that I’ll be able to keep my current day job as a full-time teleworker. And best yet, although the house is small, it’s a nice size for me … and I bought it outright for less than a down payment would have cost here in the nation’s capital.
More as it develops, but I just wanted to give folks a heads up that this may mean some longer gaps in blogging over the next month or two.
