Terminal laziness

That's what I'm afraid I'll soon have. I didn't do anything today but sit at the computer - mostly doing genealogy. It's addicting, especially since I've been away from it for over a year. But I have a lot of other things I should be doing, like I can no longer convince myself I can't clean the floors, or empty the remaining boxes.

Come hell or high water I'm going to the village tomorrow and get some quarters at the bank so I can do laundry. That's a long walk on pavement so I might break down and drive the truck. It is amazing to me that, although I still don't see a clear image in my operative eye, it gets much better by late in the day. You'd think I'd wake up with good eyesight that would get worse as the day goes on. Right now I am seeing just fine. Well, at least it's not too bad.

I'm still loving apartment living, although I can sense the vibrations of the road just singing out my name. I realized today that I don't have to defrost my freezer, and my hair dryer won't conflict with any other appliance. Not that I have many appliances, but I was always having to go reset the circuit in the 5th wheel because I would forget - it was mostly the hair dryer causing the trouble. Also, the water pressure is superb, and I especially love the shower. Having a dishwasher is a luxury I didn't think I would miss, nor did I think I would ever have one again. I am quickly getting used to it, and appreciate having a clean coffee pot.

I miss the traveling, but I hope to be doing some in the future. I just don't know yet how I'll be doing it, although I want to be able to go over back roads and into areas that aren't congested. Maybe I can get a family camping trip going for some weekend before I head off to Lassen.

Right now I need to head off to bed! Nite y'all.


  1. Yep, I know what you mean by having the conveniences. When fulltiming you adjust to things over a period of time. Snow birding is a continual frustrating adjustment back & forth. I would say it's the hot daily showers with unlimited water & pressure that I miss the most on the road by far. And all the room in the sticks & bricks shower too.......

  2. I miss the dishwasher, even though I have a great one in the RV. Hubby. I'm so glad you'll be going part time in the RV.
