Look at the job this way... anything you can get done now, with the extra income from the job... gets you further ahead, FASTER, and if the job situation gets worse and you don't have one in the future, you might be grateful to be that much further ahead. I honestly believe that we are going to be in some hard times for a few years... even if the elections swing things, we are not going to get out of this mess in twice the time it took them to get us into it.
Get all you can get out of it for the next 4-12 months... and get things done as you can... even if it means doing the rv for a year. I promise you, you will be glad to have the work money... and be happier if things are financially easier in a year or 2, because of the sacrifice you are making now.
Yeah thats how im looking at it. Plus im looking at side work on trade or barter for other stuff we need.
Some good news we now have septic permits and a well contract. Just waiting on the well to be drilled.

More clearing work. Progress is slowing as the backhoe needs repairs and the weather turns rainy.

Got the backhoe fixed and broke hydraulics 10mins later. Sat down the other night and picked out what we wanted to plant this coming year. DW helped me set up a schedule and goal board since im struggling to adapt to civilian life. Lack of swim lanes has been daunting.

take it easy in the gardens and get back into it gradually. by the middle of summer you'll feel pretty darned good. which is perfect because then you're in shape for what comes next (harvest rush! :) )...
