|To lighten the mood and make me smile: Elsa after she cut her back at the cabin last summer|
Last fall I wrote about the difficult conversation(s) we need to have about our long term plans for our cabin. At the time, I was able to successfully convince my husband that this conversation needed to wait until after our busy fall, after the holidays, after we switched jobs and got settled. Well, that time is now, and honestly, I still don’t want to have the conversation. I see a lot of value in having it and making a plan and committing one way or the other, but I just can’t bring myself to deal with this.
It’s going to be hard and messy, and it may lead to a big change. I tend to avoid change, but this could be a good one. One that frees us up to do other stuff and accomplish big life goals.
My gut feeling is that we should keep the cabin, but I don’t know if I feel that way because I really do want to commit to keeping it or because I don’t want to change my plans and take a risk and close the door on this path that we worked to flippin’ hard to open for ourselves.
As hard as it is going to be, I’m going to commit to starting the conversation.
