I've been setting up my own cottage business for a couple of years to get ready for retirement. I figure between that and volunteer work, I won't go stir crazy.
DH has now jumped on the band wagon. He's eclectic like I am, but has decided to concentrate on wood working - in a BIG way. So his dream is to have a fully functional wood shop. While he has many large tools, we are off this AM to check out a used sander. A sander that you would see in a shop. A big sander. A huge sander. While I'm in shock just looking at the pic due to the size of this thing, he's drooling. Best part is I know he'll use it.
Now DH and DDIL have jumped on the band wagon. They have put an offer on property with a house and a huge pole barn.
So now the plan is DH to start a wood working business, DS to get his blacksmithing company in full motion, and DDIL to get her bookkeeping/accounting business going.
Now they're concerned where to stick my business. I keep telling them all I need is a 12 ft square corner with great lighting that's clean. They're worried that I'll feel left out/cramped/put upon/whatever because they're basically taking over.
My other "demands" that they have agreed to: I can bring my dog to work, we have "shop" cat/s (we plan on partitioning off the blacksmith shop with sound proofing and a blower system), and a housekeeper once a week.
So getting old isn't a bad thing in my life.
What are your plans?
