Nov 6, 2010 - Off to Terrible's

Well, it's Saturday morning and if all goes well we will hit the road after we check in town for mail. Hoping that Bob's prescription gets here today. Finished loading everything up yesterday and even had time to take my daughter to lunch (thanks Lin for joining me). I'll have to pick up more mild and orange juice, because I thought I would have full containers when we started traveling last Monday, but we've since drank them! Brewing the last pot of coffee right now and waiting for Bob to come in from the RV (where he's guarding the water...

Nov 4, 2010 - Still here

Well, we're still going to be here tomorrow! I put this picture on my desktop so Bob can look at it and hopefully it will light a fire under him ... fat chance. We did get most of the stuff loaded today, and I made a trip to town to return some stuff and pick up some more. I swear we just move the same food back and forth each time we go somewhere and never get it eaten up. No one needs that many canned goods! When we get back in the spring I'm going to throw out everything (food, spices, etc.) that is still in our cabinets before we move...

Nov 3, 2010 - Still loading

I'm thinking I put more stuff on here but it's disappeared - didn't save it I guess...senior moment. Ended up spending 3 hours at work yesterday, then had to go to the courthouse, post office and head home. Forgot to get gas! Bob got work done on the RV, but then when we went to turn it around in the yard the steps caught in the gravel. Finally got that unstuck. Then when he went to put the jacks down to level it, they wouldn't work so spent another couple hours fixing the ground. Everything we do seems to cause more problems. My...

Nov 1, 2010 - I'm pooped!

Not getting too far. Spent hours in town this morning trying to get a duplicate truck title, buying last minute items at Walmart for all the stuff we can't find, vacuumed up trillions of those little orange bugs - BUT WE HAVE HOT WATER !!! Bob went to get some boards to finish up under the bathroom sink and then we can start shampooing. Why do I feel like it won't get done today as it's 2:30 already. We have to take the RV in to town tomorrow to get some work done and fill up with gas and LP, so I'll go to work for an hour or so to finish...

Oct 27, 2010 - Gearing up for the S/W/N/E trip of 2010

Well, we're getting fairly close after months of prodding Bob! Some days I feel like a cattlewoman... The main holdup has been our water heater. For those of you who haven't heard me ranting about this for the past 6 weeks, the element went bad and the water started smelling like rotten onions after our trip to Wisconsin in August. Bob tried to get the element out but it was pretty well frozen in there (after 14 years). After many tries (finally taking it out by cutting water/electric/gas connections) and pounding with some big tools and a...

Jun 27, 2009 - Home to our Weebles

6/24/09 - We headed out about 7:30 and headed for home. Got home about 2:30 and unpacked, grabbed a sandwich and headed to Delhi to get Weebles. He was soooooo happy to see us. We had thought about taking Judie and Francis out for supper, but it wouldn’t have been very nice to leave Weebles right after we got back, so we just picked up some steaks on the way and had supper at their house. Got back home about 8 p.m. (which was actually 9 p.m. on the time zone we left that morning). 6/26-6/28 Took us until Saturday to unpack and get laundry...
