Remember that day-planner-from-hell I showed you a few weeks ago? This is what happens to it when you quit your job and contemplate living on the road for a year. Suddenly I have space to doodle and daydream and it’s driving me to distraction. I’ve never NOT had appointments and meetings and deadlines. I feel like I’ve overslept and forgotten my real life. My job today? Figuring out how to downsize my entire wardrobe to fit next to groceries inside the tiny Avion cabinets. I wish I had discovered this downsizing blog earlier. This so isn’t going to be “glamping,” despite what the brochure implies.
