The best laid plans…

Ever notice there is a proverb or idiom for pretty much any situation? Well, the phrase “The best laid plans of mice and men oft go astray” has been stuck in my head as of late.  You see, today has been a bit of a rough day for me. It’s become necessary for me to ‘pull the plug’ on my grand experiment.

We (my wife & I) decided this past weekend, that I had no choice but to give up my studies at Willowbank.  With the birth of our twins, and all of the ups and downs that has accompanied that, its all become too much for us to handle. Something had to give, and that something was the idea of me dedicating three years to being a full-time student. It was always a long-shot, but was fun while it lasted.

I started off this morning as a student. I end the day as just another unemployed guy looking for a halfway decent job. Such is life.

If my luck improves any, and the stars align just right, I’m hoping to find work that will allow me to keep my hand in either smithing and/or built heritage. Maybe, just maybe, I can revisit the idea of school again some time in the future.  But for now, I need to find a way to keep a roof over my family’s head and food on the table.

I’ve no idea what’s next for me, but stay tuned…
