Not giving up any time soon...

So, slowly but surely we are en route to the financial recovery. Things are getting better even if we aren't out of the woods yet.

Tomorrow we are moving to a cheaper house, and this week we will sort our little Millie's injections so that within 6 months she will be allowed to enter the UK.

Out of this great despair came a brilliant idea, for my own personal online business that would give me an income independent of my husband.

That may sound strange but I have barely worked since I got married, I always knew that I wasn't cut out to be a housewife, but my husband didn't like the idea of me working. It has changed now, therefor I will have some drive to do things, because believe me being a housewife can be a daunting task for some. Not every woman loves to clean, wash floors and wash up right after the meal, and I am certainly not one of them.

So life, with it's struggles and challenges still is my life too. I could not accept it any other way, but sometimes I have a moment of panic which is usually is cured within a few days.

I am finally kind of official regular contributor to the Lithuanian paper that published my first article in October, and they are going to publish my latest one too, as well as I already was asked to prepare another article for the December issue.

The poetry competition is closing to an end and I have to start of thinking about purchasing the prize. Everything on that front is going well.

Most of my stuff is packed and the Internet connection is ordered for our "new" home, it is quite a magical place. Magical in every sense of the word. I will post pictures as soon as I can.

I am trying in the meantime to organise my time so that I have time enough to write, to work, to read, and to be a wife and a mother of two boxer dogs.
This post is part of my temporary goodbye until the Internet connection will be installed in El Golco.

My life is not pink coloured nor is it absolutely convenient to my wants, but deep inside of me I know that I am doing the right thing. As long as our family is together we are strong.

Good to hear.

Moving forward. Trying and achieving is always hard. But it is also rewarding (as long as we don't let the setbacks / paperwork / obligations / blah blah blah overwhelm us). I hope you have a lot of support and strength.

I have never been against my wife working because I wanted to be the one to stay home :P

Todays magic word is lthpinl

I'm so happy to hear that you are finding confidence and hope amidst your struggles. You will find your way through this and emerge stronger and more self-aware. As difficult as it may be to accept at the time, I always remind myself that the struggles and sadness of life are necessary for the beauty of life and a greater sense of appreciation to grow within us.
