Since I sold our Christmas tree on craigslist (yes I was the Grinch who sold Christmas…) one of our friends bought us our future RV Christmas tree – just perfect! A bit smaller than our other one :) but it will fit better on the dashboard of the RV. Doesn’t it look great with all the presents?
I want to thank all those that congratulated us about our recent toad acquisition… we are so happy to have one big step behind us. However, we are ready to move on to the next one… the motorhome!
I was going to title this blog the “Calm before the Storm” but I got beat to the punch by Rick and Paulette… But the fact is “Calm before the Storm” is the perfect statement for us right now. With Christmas looming and New Year’s around the corner now is the time to relax with our family and to celebrate our fortunes of the past year while also celebrating our future ones.
But we have less than 70 days before we want to hit the road… How are we going to do all we have to do in so little time? YIKES!!!! I am sure we can find a way but YIKES!!! We have been looking for the perfect rig for about one year and yet we still haven’t found it yet. Recently it became obvious that we were going to have to “settle” for something less than perfect. So we have lowered our standards like we did in high school when we thought we could find the perfect date on our first try :)
Not only have we lowered our standards a bit but we have also had to raise how much we want to spend… So we may settle for a few less options but we hope that by the end of January we have our future home. Man it sucks to be on a budget – anyone have an extra 100K?
So wish us luck and we will wish you all a very Merry Christmas and of course a Happy New Year…
