DO NOT mark my words!!!

Ok, I don't mean to hollar, but I wanted to make my point.

Please, please do not hold me to my word- at least as far as goals, hopes and dreams.

Because dreams and goals can change. Think back to your high school days.

What did you want to do with your life?

Are you doing it now?

Believe it or not, at one time I wanted to be an Archeologist. And a school teacher. And a writer!

So I did work in a daycare center for several years, and did home daycare for about 10 years. Even worked in an elementary school as a resource person.

Did I choose to do this forever?


I write, and have been published a few times in a local magazine. But do I write full time?


Am I an Archeologist?


At one time, I dreamed of having a houseboat and floating the waters of the world. Ron wanted an RV.

Since I started homeschooling, I want an RV. I want to explore the US, go to historical sites.

Funny how I hated that stuff in school! Now I yearn for it.

Many people get frustrated when they set goals, and fail to achieve them in the time frame that they set.

Other's find themselves half-heartedly trying to achieve goals that they no longer really want to achieve. But they feel as if once a goal is set, it must be met.

Nothing will keep a person "stuck in a rut" and "underachieveing"  more than working for something we don't even desire.

So sit down and take a second look at your long term hopes, dreams and goals.

Have they changed?

Write new ones!

Are they the same, but you just need more time? Change your goal date.

Find something you truly desire and see if you don't find yourself jumping out of bed every morning eager to get to work and fulfill that dream!

Until next time......

See you at the top!

I'm here, where are you?

January was a busy month here. Trying to catch up after Christmas, starting a new homeschooling blog and preparing (I hope) to go on the road in the fall, expanding my business and "roadschooling" my daughter. I've been looking for a trailer to travel in.

Homeschooling and Roadschooling are some of the cool advantages that can come as a result of working at home. Your time is pretty much your own. Barring our medical appointments, what is really stopping me from traveling the US? Not much!

Even if you "dry camp" on "boondock" , which usually means free camping ( usually on state land) without hook-ups for elect. and water, you can still work. Free Internet cafe's, satellite dishes for Internet, cell phone cards, etc...all provide Internet. Cell phones provide the phone, and you can get solar panels to keep your batteries charged so you have electric.

Working at home also gives you the freedom to be a scout leader, a sports coach, youth group leader and more. Your children will be positively effected by hanging with you more..........

You also receive some GREAT home office deductions, and save on a babysitter and gas. And the time you save because you are no longer commuting to work....

What's stopping you?
