Travel Log 10-28: Quick Turns and Unexpected Detours

    Well it's been a few days since I posted and I'm sorry I haven't been around much  but some changes have gone on around here that have taken my immediate attention.
    The big one is that due to some unforeseen financial problems I have had to go out and obtain gainful employment in a hurry, which fortunately I have. The unfortunate part is  that I will be working as a car salesperson. Weird, I know, but I can sell like no bodies business and it will be a quick way for us to get the cash we need. The really bad part is I will be working A LOT. Which means less time to go through all of your blogs and less time to devote to this one. I am still going to do NaNoWriMo this year and I will complete it!
     In other news my OH has decided that he is going to pursue a possible career in the military and there for is going on a crash diet/exercise kick to lose the weight necessary to enlist. This of course brings untold amounts of family court stress revolving around HRH and the Weremonkey as I have no intention of leaving without them and my OH is there stepfather. So yeah.
     That's been my week so far and I have done some 31 days stuff but I'll have to get that posted later cause my brain is fried.
     I'll have more Off the Path tonight and it will bring us close to the conclusion of Tiffany's trip into the woods!
      Here's a chant I found to help fight lethargy from Spells of  :

A Chant Of Invigoration

If you are feeling low on energy (not magical energy) just say this.
When you are feeling lethargic, chant this:
I am low and need your grace,
To replenish my aura in this place.
I beg of you, hear my plea,
Give your gift unto me.
Once you have done this, stand up (if you are already standing up, walk three steps to the north) and say:So mote it be.


  1. What a great idea! I really need some recharging. I will definitely cast that spell!
    Brightest blessings.

  2. Best wishes on your new job. May you sell the lot!

  3. Um, WOW. Big changes! The military, huh?

    I hope all the changes are for the best and that everything works out well for your family!

  4. Greekwitch: Thanks, I like it myself and often need recharging, lol.

    Rue: Thanks for the good thoughts! I hope I do too!
    Wendy: He's talked about it on and off and I've pretty much shot it down out of hand, but he's an engineer and in this economy there isn't a lot out there for his field. I didn't think I could handle being an military wife, let alone military wife and mother, but after spending the past few months reading your blog and that of other women who do make it work for them I think I might be able to get through it and even enjoy certain aspects of it. A lot of the changes going on have to happen to us, and while my husband possibly enlisting would be a huge change, I believe I can find a way to make it work for our family.

  5. Oh my! Big changes.
    Good luck with your new job. And good luck to your husband on the dieting and exercising.
