Its Been Awhile

Well I have been very remiss at writing my blog.. I know, I got a talking to last night on chat.. So here goes..  I never feel like what I have to say is worth writing, kinda boring is more like it.  I have been very busy at the golf course. My little part time job that started out at 2 or 3 days a week has turned out to be 5 days a week.  They only have myself and two other cooks. They are open 7 days a week. So you can see where it leaves us.  The boss keeps saying she has been searching for another cook but  no applicants as of yet. What do you do. I am not the kind of person to let them be stranded.  We will just stay on her.   Luckily Kevin and I have not been babysitting much the last few weeks. My daughters sister in law was visiting and helped with the kiddos.

In my spare time Kevin and I were on a hunt to buy a new truck.  We only had a 1500 and wanted to upgrade to a 3500 in hopes of buying a 5th wheel.  Well, we came across a good deal. We found a 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 6.7 cummins turbo diesel (think I got that right) brand new.  We are on a budget so opted for the 2007.  It amazes me how the dealership just hands over the truck before they even have their money or before I had even applied for a loan. We have had it for two weeks now and I just now got the check for it today.. We have to go in with the check, pick up our plates and they will clean it up, add sideboards, mudflaps, new wheels. Hope it was a good decision.  Now we will take our time looking for a 5th wheel.

Another big decision was made this week. My daughter and her husband have decided to put the house on the market and downsize so that she can stay home more with her kids. She is a flight attendant and has many options for schedules and hours.  I think this is a good decision. I have told her that her children will benefit from her being home more and that they grow up so fast.  As many of you know, we have a small guest house attached to their home by a breezeway.  So of course this means we will be moving out also, if and when the house sells.  The market is starting to improve a little but who ever knows what will happen. It could take a year or a week, you just never know.  So the fun will begin!! We will go fulltime on the road. But what to do with  all the “stuff” we have, including all our furniture..   I don’t want to start getting rid of it now in case it doesn’t sell.  Alot of you have been in the same boat so come on give your feedback..

Sounds like we are in for a busy summer here. The heat has already hit us hard. Very hot and humid week..  I have had a very bad spring with allergy’s this year.  They are just now starting to improve, and hope they are gone soon.

I continue to follow the blogs or as Speedy would say the journals of all our friends.  What a tough decision to decide where to head first when we finally hit the road!

Good luck with the new truck. I am sure you will like it. We already had the 5th wheel so we auctioned all of the stuff in the house and moved the furniture from the rv into the house. Somehow I think that did the trick cause 2 weeks later we got the a contract on the house. Now we are full timing and lovin it/
