I've been very long away from Texas Trifles - unintentionally. My visitor and commenting numbers were down, and I must confess a certain amount of disinterest in blogging for while. Not to say with any fanfare "I'm Back!", as I may not be as frequent a poster in the days and weeks to come.
My day job is very stressful and demanding. My personal life has gotten busy with trying to sell our house, perhaps buy something new, or maybe once unloaded with the burden of home ownership, we might pocket the money and think about the future that might happen after the next 10 working years. They'll fly by, they'll crawl by in succession, I 'm sure. Interest rates are terrific, so I am kinda of thinking maybe we'll rent for a while, and take a look at buying a home in an area we would love to live - The Big Bend area of Texas.
Could be we buy a house in that location, use it for vacations, and maybe rent it out as well.
Jury still out on what we will end up doing. We know that we will work at our current jobs, unforseen health issues nothwithstanding, for the next 10 years. Heck, we know that we will need to work even after attaining that hope-its-still-there social security check.
