A Solution……..

I somehow doubt that my boss would go for this, but I could wish.

Adam told me that his parents offered to let us live in the cottage while we’re in transition. Theoretically, the work I do here could easily be done from any PC with net access. Satellite net connection is considerably cheaper than paying rent on a place. And we could store our belongings for about 75$ a month or so, also considerably cheaper than paying rent. It would give us the opportunity to save some money so that when we needed to move we could actually afford to do so. It would make it entirely possible for us to buy groceries (which we haven’t done in longer than I can remember.) It would take hideous amounts of stress out of our lives.

The cottage is north a ways. It’s a fully-equipped house, washer/dryer fridge/stove and all that. Not to mention the lake, canoe, pontoon boat, and ancient forest. It would be true telecommuting, although I know I could get into toronto every couple of weeks if needed for meetings or something.

A virtually ideal solution… Except I’m pretty sure my boss wouldn’t be too keen on the idea.

    that sounds simply amazing.

    Would it be the cottage on the island or on mainland in New Liskeard? (I know you said cottage, so i assumed you meant the island…)

    But if you can pull that off, i will be so freakin envious of you two…

      The island, although they’ve offered to let us stay at the house if all falls apart as well. That’d last a week before Adam went crazy, I’m sure 😉

      Only issue I’ve seen is satellite seems to require line out sight to the south… I think the trees might cause a problem there.

      Yeah. I want to do that.
