Sleep and Dinner with Friends

Hey to Pidge, our newest follower.  It's so nice to expand the RV family by enjoying others blogs.  There are a few that I frequently read even though I haven't signed in as a follower and I don't add a comment that often.  I can be quiet but I do appreciate the blogs.

It's been a busy few days.  After working my last 12 hour night, I took the MH to the dealer to have them work on the jack at 7:00am Wednesday.  No nap.  They got it a little bit better and I got home about 2:00pm.  Since that was 25 hours after my last nap, I laid down for a 3 hour snooze.  Needless to say, that was a wasted day but today wasn't.  Gin had a doctor's appointment that was short and sweet.  Yep she has MS but it doesn't have her.  We stopped at Wally World on the way home and then we went to Lone Star Steakhouse to meet some fellow bloggers and RV-Dreamers, Jim and Dee.  They are in the area for a couple of weeks while they visit family and friends.  We forgot our camera so we don't have any evidence, but that may be a good thing.  We visited with them a little longer in their very nice 5er.  There are pros and cons to rving in a 5er or a MH.  Neither is better than the other but one will generally work better for your personal preferences than the other.  It was a very nice visit but it sure makes us itch even more.  I know our time will come sooner than we think so we need to do a few craigslist things and such to make a smooth transition next summer.  I can hardly wait.

I gotta go to work early tomorrow so I need to get some beauty sleep (I need more than one night for that).  This is the long part of work, 3 days on, 1 off,  then 3 nights(12 hour shifts).  It just gets me closer to the next rv trip so it's all good.

Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life's journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.

Found your website off of Tumbleweeds, aka Jim & Dee. We enjoy reading of others trying to dispose of all the STUFF! Good luck and if you have any questions, please we love giving our advice from our beginnings!

We had a great visit with Jim and Dee, too last weekend. Hope to have a visit with you both, too one of these days.

Hang in there, shift work is the worst. Better days ahead!

We are reliving those last months before full-timing in your posts. Hang in there. By the way, in Indiana, we simply call sodas, "cokes". It doesn't matter if they are coca cola, pepsi, or whatever. They are all "cokes" :-)
