A meandering blog with no clear topic. You will find me talking about knitting, building, kids, social and economic issues, Alaska, and lots of other stuff.

the big push

Well, PFD's came in today. For those outsiders reading this, that is the Permanent Fund Dividend. Oil money. Every Alaskan gets paid once a year, thanks to the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act. This year was a significant windfall, and we are going to put it to good use.

James is taking the rest of the month off from work, and is going to live up at our property, and push hard to get the cabin done. The rest of us will join him on weekends, and continue our normal lives in Anchorage during the week, with school, work, etc.

It is very odd, this dichotomous life we live. We spend 2/3 of our week living in one city, and the other 1/3 in another. And with James gone all the time, it will seem even stranger. I think it will be a good thing for our family when we no longer have lives in two separate places.
