As of this week, I’ve officially launched my own consulting business, Magnuson Consulting Group, LLC. Primarily, I’ll offer consulting in the areas of travel planning and a mile- and points- booking service, as well as some other areas. I even have packages developed for first time campers!
Why, you may ask? Well, because you all asked me to! As this blog has grown, I’ve begun getting more and more questions about miles and points booking, no longer just from friends and family, but oftentimes from complete strangers. And I love it!
I want to share the gift of travel, as well as my other talents, with as many people as possible. But that doesn’t mean I’ll stop sharing news and tips about travel hacking right here on Unintended Domesticity; it just means if you want assistance planning your own adventures, I’m at your service.
Well, hey there Unintended Domesticity readers. What? Ah, no. Don’t give me the cold shoulder like that, baby. I’m sorry. I know I’ve been neglecting the blog a little lately, but if you’ll bare with me just a bit, I’ll tell you why.
You see after a glorious period of fun-employment, it was time to come back down to mere mortal status. So I got a job. In fact, I got TWO jobs.
The first job is with yet another tech company. I probably won’t talk too much about that job here on UD, because there are like, 8 ka-trillion blogs about tech marketing, and, uh…they’ve got it covered. Except for when that job sends me fabulous places for work, which brings me to my next job:
I’m also now a contributing writer for The Points Guy, the biggest, baddest miles and points travel blog in the game. (Sayyyyy whatttttt?!) So if you’re not already a reader, check in for me there about once a week, and I promise to keep posting stories of my own travel here as well.
The title kind of says it all. This post won’t contain mouthwatering recipes, helpful home improvement tips, or beautiful travel photography. This post is about me, recent owner of a broken fifth metatarsal, whining and complaining. If you follow my blog for those other sorts of things, you may just want to skip this post. If you’re my mom (I know you’re reading, mom) then feel free to keep reading.
On our last night in Kansas for Thanksgiving, I stepped off the driveway at my brother in law’s house into his awkwardly placed snow drainage ditch. My foot rolled, I fell, and the wine I was carrying exploded, leaving glass everywhere and me broken and bleeding. And though I had glass embedded in my bleeding hand and nasty road rash scrapes on my knee and elbow, those injuries were nothing – NOTHING – compared to the intense pain in my foot/ankle.
Fast-forward 48 hours and I could still barely put any weight on my foot without intense pain. I finally got in to see the doctor, and he confirmed: it’s broken. His recommendation: 6-12 weeks in an aircast.
Anyhoo. So that’s all. My foot hurts. The cast sucks. Having to work while broken is awful. Harumph. But perhaps more importantly, that means you probably shouldn’t expect too many blog posts for me in the interim – I won’t be doing a lot of cooking and home improvement while injured, unfortunately. Ah, well.
Once again, I’ve found myself bitten by the writing bug, so launching a new blog. This one will be a dumping ground for all the culinary, travel, home improvement and general life adventures from this homemaker wannabe.
Enjoy, and leave me comments so I know people are actually reading. Thanks!
