The days have been so jammed packed with pure joy; I hadn’t realized how fast it has gone by. I dearly love the ability to watch our daughter play her last year of softball here in North Carolina and she seems to enjoy having us nearby. The best part is the morning……(who knew because I used to dislike mornings). I love waking up when I want to, enjoying my coffee, my husband and the views at every turn.
I also love “nesting” in our new little home, and as long as it is tidy, it feels quite spacious. A full-out cleaning inside the entire RV top to bottom takes no more than a couple of hours so I do it on laundry day. This allows me the joy of having everything clean and fresh. (Is that weird lol?) Surprisingly I don’t miss my old dishwasher because I actually enjoy washing our dishes by hand, drying them and putting them away. I swear our silverware and glassware appear shinier…maybe the dishwasher detergent leaves a film? The closet had been a big problem until the DH customized it for us (much to my relief). You see, I am so short that I need a stool in the kitchen to reach the above cabinets, and before the closet solution, I needed that same stool to reach my clothes. Now I can see AND REACH everything. The shelving provided us more organized storage which is great and best of all; nothing falls down when we travel. Whew!
Do I miss home? Yes family and friends are farther away; pedicures are fewer and farther between; my hairdresser was fantastic…. I just remind myself they are a text, call or email away. It’s funny I REALLY thought I’d miss having access to endless TV channels. So far we have been so busy that I watch little or no TV (and to me this is shocking)! Even on rainy days I find I have much more fun making bread or bagels, playing on the internet or rediscovering how fun just hanging out with my spouse can be. Sooo…. At this one month point….. Life is great….no regrets.
