Life Lately

It’s been quite a while since I posted an update and there is a lot to catch up on.

  • First – we’re officially digital nomads! (You can read more about how that came to be here: Our Landlord Asked Us to Move Out In the Middle of a Pandemic) So far, so good. We’ve already hit a few small speed bumps in dealing with every day life but we’re learning quickly. I plan to publish a “How To” and include some early lessons learned. We moved on from our first long-term Airbnb in Port Angeles, WA and are now in an Airbnb near Leavenworth, WA.
  • I’m in the process of launching an Amazon FBA company. It’s been something that I’ve wanted to try for a long time and just kept not doing it. Now that I’m home all the time, I figured I might as well do something productive with my time. Stay tuned for details! I hope to launch in the next month.
  • I’ve been binging Crime Junkie podcast again. It’s just so good. If you like True Crime podcasts, you’ve got to try.
  • UNSOLVED MYSTERIES IS BACK! And I’m a little proud and also a little embarrassed to say that Brian and I finished the entire series in two days over the long weekend. Two days. It was really refreshing to see some stories that hadn’t been done by every Investigation Discovery show and podcast before. There were stories that I had never even heard of, which is extremely rare for me.
  • We got a car that I can drive! I haven’t had a vehicle since we moved out to Washington. When we were living downtown, I just didn’t need one. We had Brian’s car (I can’t drive his car) for when we really needed our own vehicle but for the most part, I just walked or took an Uber everywhere I went. Now that we’re living on the road, we needed more space and we needed a vehicle I could drive. We are now proud owners of a 2017 Nissan Armada which we have named Buggie.
  • My employer has all kinds of fitness challenges and a great wellness incentive program (it pays for our health insurance premiums!). I had been carrying my Google Pixel as my “pedometer” but once the weather warmed up, I decided to invest in a fitness watch. I have had several different Fitbit models over the years. They typically last 1-2 years for me before they get gross or they break. I recently purchased a Fossil smartwatch and would NOT recommend. It broke super quickly and the process to return is really difficult so I’m basically just out a couple hundred bucks. After a lot of research, and some inspiration from Charlie (@therunnerbeans on Insta), I decided to invest in a Garmin Fenix watch. I chose the Fenix 6S Sapphire: https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/641530

 

Thanks for stopping in. 🙂
