Life can be a zoo or not, while we monkey around! (Gulf Shores, AL)

Wide window shades fully open, more blue skies, and lots of sunshine. This has been one fine month for December, 2014! I hope I’m not repeating myself. As if I’m not forgetting what I logged last time, there are the posts I already made to Facebook and Instagram. Guess if one app goes south, the…

Back to RV Living…yipee! (Alabama)

We escaped Mobile!!! Going back at least a few weeks to getting rid of the trashed Keystone Sprinter TT and moving into the new Grand Design Solitude 5vr, I’ll try to record a little history. Mr. Jer was involved in the initial water leak which was fixable. Then came the issue with the slide falling…

H = Hills and Heat! (Missouri)

The lessons we learn….”We’ll take the 80s over the 90s any ole’ day! Darn, it’s hot in southern Missouri!  And we’ve found the hills! We headed toward the Branson area for our next stopover, wanting to be able to sightsee the surroundings, side trip into Arkansas and Springfield, and work on a few mods and more…

Rainy day Wednesday! (Indiana)

The week is flying…  Knowing we are getting things updated, started, and crossed off the list…I still feel like many stones left unturned.  The cabinets were emptied and the files were rearranged.  I feel so organized and ready to take on routing this summer’s travels!  We will soon reach our ONE year anniversary and are…

House-sitting gigs can be GRAND!

Love it when family offers up the driveway, or even a chance to house sit while they take off for Disney!  One week down and one more to go.  What a lovely home and we were totally lost going room from room instead of wall to wall.  A mega washer and dryer that we could…

Just a “glimmer”…

Down the highway….one half hour north of the bricks and sticks in a Illinois state park campground – Weldon Springs! Seventy-eight sites…we are one of three hooked up – PERFECT!  Adjusting to the new lifestyle…might change our names to the Nomad and the Gypsy! The big bad camera hiding, so here was a snippet from the…

An empty bricks and sticks!

It’s down to the shoes and the cowboy boots are a must…but where will they all go?!!  I’m feeling a brand new pair of running shoes…C25K is calling me.  These last six months have been filled with fast food, nights of popcorn for dinner, and laziness on the couch TV side.  A few tears but…

Time keeps ticking down…

My countdown calendar keeps get smaller and smaller.  In the midst of the all the madness…we took an afternoon to lounge at the pool…grandkids and mom and dad were gone so had it all to ourselves.  Felt like I had escaped to a resort.   Friday it’s bye-bye to cable tv and the king-size bed.  It’s…

Pulling my hair out!

I suspect there’s been enough posts about downsizing, purging, whining, and just a pure emotional roller coaster. But that’s my life right now. I get scared, second guess myself and this journey, and move items from room to room.  Gheez….it can sure play mind games on you.  My goal is to have the last of it in…

I’m a MINIMALIST!!!

Today’s adventure…my closet full of clothes.  Oh wait, and Jer’s!  When you squeeze into a Casita there is only so much you can take.  Then I remembered simple living by Courtney!  So , I decided to make four piles: in the CozybeGone in the truck back seat as a backup (destined to give away as…

The BLUE skies are opening…

I’m officially retired (moved the date up) and less than three weeks, this new journey begins! The last week had me surrounded in love and friendship in so many ways!  It’s like the end of book or more like the closing of a chapter and beginning of another. Saying goodbyes with daily fun included: Last…

Closing in on take-off!

A crazy idea starts with a shift in your thinking and the ability to see only possible as an outcome. — Alissa Finerman We’re in waiting mode….inspection complete and they have three working days.  Gheez, you get a buyer and there are ten steps farther to go…… So in the mean time, during one of my favorite seasons…
