We're Back...


I bet you're all, 'Wow!  Spicy Princess, way to fail at your New Year's Resolution!' and you'd be right... I am still slacking at posting.  BUT (yes, this is all-caps important) it is because The Executioner and I have been busy.  What have we been doing?!?  Oh, you know... attacking one of our goals.  Goal #3 - MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!  What is said goal? 
  • Relocate to a property in the woods with large acreage and a modest house.
That's right.  We moved into the woods at the end of March and have been busy, busy, busy in doing so.  My hope (hint hint) is that The Executioner will appear any day now and write more to tell you all the this-es and thats.  

So you can get a picture of our definition of 'property in the woods' - I went for a 5 mile run today and passed: 8 - 10 driveways, 1 (yes one) car (that was in motion that is), 1 happy dog that came out to greet me, and was able to run in the middle of the dirt road for most of the journey.  I'm so excited to grow food and enjoy the serenity that our forever home brings.  

That's the update for now.  I hope your goals are coming along too!

  1. Progress! How fun! I can't wait to hear all about it.

  2. That's awesome that y'all have gotten moved in. I can't wait until my wife and I can move in to our own house out in the woods. Although that will still be a little while. Luckily we've got enough yard to get a little garden going, although it's a bit later than I'd like. We've got some tomato plants already in and today I'm going to see about some peppers and squash. Even though we're late in getting started at least the growing season is quite long here in Texas.

  3. Congratulations!!! This is a big deal! Have fun settling in and making the place your own.

  4. Congratulations! I know that was something you both wanted. I envy the peaceful serenity you'll enjoy living in the woods. Kick that husband of yours in the Patootie and get him to post!

  5. Hi sp and te i found your dtm blog a couple weeks ago and have enjoyed reading about your life transformation. I have four years left on my mortgage (im 28) and am motivatef reading your continuing story. Enjoy your house in the country!

  6. Very nice! I can't wait to hear how things are going once you guys get settled.

  7. This must make spring so fun, planting your garden and all! Are you planning to pay your new mortgage off sooner also?
