Geocaching is fun!
A lot has happened in the past year...Some Good and some not so good. I have been on layoff now for just over one year. While some might think this is a disaster and if you read my blog while this was happening you would see I did too...in fact, while difficult monetarily, this has actually been a great year for me in a lot of ways as a person. I've been able to step back from work, work, work and focus on my family and especially my son. To be able to spend this past year with him at the age of 3-4 has been a true gift.
A few years ago I had a dream about using GPS to set up scavanger hunts in the forest. When I looked this up on the internet I was quickly diverted to geocaching.com and signed up..It turns out lots of others had this dream too!....and then promply forgot about it....until this past fall when having so much free time on my hands the idea came to me again. I asked for and received a GPS unit as a Christmas present. Within a few days of the New Year I visited my first geocache site. With several thousand in the area I have no shortage of caches to visit.
I have a real hobby!! Yeah me! (Other than poker of course ;))
As my layoff may be coming to an end soon, I am beginning to look at going back to work with disappointment and a bit of sadness as I know how much I will be missing out on with Christopher. Taking him to events and geocache outings has been a super bonding experience. Somehow I hope to find a way to work from home and leave the mill behind me but know that for the time being I will most likely return to work there.
Well, this has been a bit of a scatterbrained post. I have a lot on my mind but do not want to prattle on much right now.
