The thing is, I know what I love to do, so I believe that should be THE Plan. I'll knit. Not only that, maybe I could teach knitting for seed money.
To that end, I joined The Guild today. I'd join the local one, but their meetings are always when I'm working, so I joined the national guild. My plan is to continue working for awhile and at my leisure, I'll work to accomplish the three levels of becoming a Master Knitter through TKGA. When I achieve that, I'll get certification to teach knitting, although I'm pretty certain I don't need to go to that end, but it won't hurt, will it? In October, I'll enroll in level I of the Masters Program and begin this journey. This should give me time to clear my knitting decks. If you ask me, it beats a Master's in Nursing in terms of the kind of work required of me.
My husband has a two year plan to my early retirement, but I think 4 is more feasible. I'd like to spend the last 2 years squirreling money away, so to speak, as I do have a very high fiber diet that isn't exactly cheap.
Light. I see light at the end of the tunnel--and no--not that tunnel and definitely not that light.
Did you know that to achieve Level II, I'll have to knit an argyle sock?
Just shoot me now. I've obviously hatched another hair-brained scheme.
