Announcing: more freelance services

My partner is a proud ironworker. However, living in a rural community with little demand for ironworkers, this means when he takes on work, he's living in camp out of town for weeks at a time. So, for the last few years, he's been the primary caregiver while I was fortunate enough to have full-time employment that covered our bills as a family of six. Was, being the operative word in that sentence. 

Earlier this year, my role was eliminated in part of a "reduction in force". The layoff, and my subsequent unemployment, gave us an opportunity to examine our current situation and determine what we wanted in our lives. My partner had been the primary caregiver for nearly 5 years, now. This is the longsest stretch either one of us has had so far, as we've traded the role depending on whose skills were in higher demand at any point in time.

It was time for him to go back to the work that he loves and thrives at, before age or injury makes it impossible for him to manage the physical labour. 

I'm excited that this will allow me to dig a little deeper into the realm of freelancing, as I balance the primary caregiver role with keeping my skills sharp. To celebrate, I'm adding new freelance services.
