The battle continues! In this case the battle is to "de-clutter," ridding ourselves of unnecessary things and accumulating some cash in the process. The amazing thing is that we have sold, or have up for sale, a LOT of items. There is not a single thing in this list though that requires us to "do without." We will miss none of it! I guess this is a good thing that we can enjoy a minimalist lifestyle as our new (not…

Now only 1 month away from the beginning of our sailing course both Rebecca and I are getting very anxious to get it over with. Although we know that we will enjoy the course we feel that once it is behind us our "path" will be solidified. We very much want to share our plans with our friends and family but feel it would be a tad premature to do so before we have completed this course.

The trick is, how do we go about doing this without sending warning messages to our friends and family. We have yet to share our plans with most of them, thinking that it may be wise to wait until after we complete our sailing course. As we don't want people to think we are hard…
