We took the beast for a trial run this weekend. Didn’t venture far, just an hour away to Arcadia, FL, cow country. It’s good to get away from the eddy that is living on the edge, also known as the coast. Went to hang with my parents for a spell.
So we packed up our tools, paint, yada, yada, you know it can’t be a relaxing vacay. Only went from Friday to Sunday so I can’t really even call it a vacay.
We just needed to give the ol’ girl a try. Did I tell you she is a 2000, with 47k miles? She handles good on the road according to Randy. We had an Indendence motor home a while back and he did NOT like the way it drove. He said it felt top heavy and light. He never felt comfortable driving it. Thank goodness his brother didn’t mind chauffeuring us around.
Randy and I have different styles of attacking a project. I like to let a house ‘talk to me’ and tell me what would bring it to life. So no-doubt that is how I thought we’d approach the rv remod. But I’ve been married to my husband for 27 years, you would certainly think I would know better, perhaps it’s more a matter of wishful thinking.
Randy wakes up in the wee hours of the morning, I’m talking like 2:00 a.m. I have to admit, we do go to bed way earlier than normal folk. I’m the daughter of a farmer, so it’s natural to me to go to bed with sun and wake up with the sun. We LOVE the mornings, but he really loves the mornings. So before I even got used to the fact there was this monstrosity in our yard, he had the old carpet tore out. Not complaining, ’cause he sure does get things done, and beside that…the carpet was some kind of Ugly!
Yep, that’s us, my husband and I. Between the two of us, we can tackle almost anything, and have often put ourselves to that test. We started off small; fix up a car here or there for a little flow money. Then we tried our hand at designing, cutting and painting craft items. Those were mostly given as gifts throughout the years to friends and family along the way. I have pieces of me all over the place.
After trying other things on for size, we moved on to buying, living in, fixing up, having fun in…did I say living in, a lot of houses, did i say a lot? (I’ve moved 28 times in my life.) We could be professional movers, we have it down to a science. But…
