It's not like I've got nothing to write about.
In fact, the opposite is true.
There has been quite a lot going on, but for various reasons I haven't been able to write about it.
Until today anyway.
But how to begin.........
For a while now, Nev and I have dreamed about one day owning our own business and working together.
Just what that business would look like and what it entailed, we never really sorted out - we had a few rough ideas (a furniture moving business called "We'll pack and stack your crap" was a favourite for a while)but you need to stake the future of your family on a bit more than that.
With our move to a new state, Nev staying at home, me working and the kiddlies going to school - completely turning our lives upside down and inside out - we decided to put a bit of effort into things and come up with a bit more of a conclusive plan.
We heard about NEIS - New Enterprise Incentive Scheme - which offered financial support for the first 12 months to a new business idea that passed their inspection - and decided that it sounded like a golden opportunity.
We contacted NEIS and Nev met with them and explained our idea. They gave us all the application forms and we proceeded to carry out the extensive paperwork - we had to conduct various consumer surveys in the area to guage people's reaction etc - we mailed it off, prayed and waited.
I'm not very good at waiting.
And as it turns out - neither is Nev when it comes to matters of this enormity and importance.
We both felt restless - wanting to do more but not knowing what "more" we could actually do, bagging our own ideas as ridiculous, second guessing ourselves etc (and writing really crappy blog posts) but somehow also knowing we had done our best and that it was now out of our hands.
We had to let go of it, and give it to God.
And......tomorrow morning at 10am, Nev signs the papers that will put:
in the yellow pages.
