Back and forth

I've spent the last couple of weeks formulating in my mind the ad I will place to sell my truck-camper combination. Today I went to drop off the check for Feb. storage, and stopped by the camper - it looks like the leak is only in the front window(which is bad enough) and is being contained by the tarp around the cabover part.

I then went to Costco and ended up coming out with a 6 x 9 patio carpet, which would be nice to have outside the camper to set up my chairs and little table. Go figure - am I going to sell it or keep it? I sure don't know at this point, but when the sun is shining everything looks a lot better and more hopeful.

My surgery is two weeks from today, and I need to start thinking about how I'm going to box up things to put in storage when I move from here the end of March. It won't be an easy task, for sure. But right now, while I have a speck of energy left, I need to do some cleaning - my most unfavorite job. With a dog around nothing stays clean for long.


  1. I hate household chores as well. I usually have to force myself to get it done. Funny how happy I am once it's done. If Emma would ever stop shedding, I'd only have to do it once in a while. :)

    Only you can decide about the camper. I hope you come to a peaceful decision in time.

  2. Sometimes in our lowest moments, we make decisions based upon the 'worst case scenario' but I think you need to let your thoughts simmer for awhile. It's hard to make a judgment or to predict how you'll feel in three weeks right now. You're nervous enough over the upcoming surgery. Give your mind a rest and let it percolate. One problem at a time, including the March move.


  3. I hope you keep your TC and at least try one or two short trips after your eye surgery. I think you will get the hang of it! If not, you have time to shop around, maybe trade for a camper van.

  4. You are in a time of stress right now Gypsy & the best advice I would give anyone, including myself, would be to put a 'hold' on any major decision making. Give yourself time to get through the eye surgery healing process & then let the Winter season change into Spring before making a decision on your truck camper.

  5. I agree with Al.
    Once you get over your surgery and Spring 'springs', you will have a whole different outlook.

  6. Only you can decide on whether to keep or sell your camper. I hope you will let it rest while you wait for your surgery. Let spring arrive before making any major decisions. You can always make the decision to sell in a month or two but if you sell now, you might find you really regret it later.

    Whatever you decide I hope it is the right one for you. Good luck with the surgery and keep us posted.

    I enjoy reading your posts.

  7. I too agree with earlier post. Give it time. Give me a call if you want a short road trip next weekend.

  8. Never make a dicision in haste. Like I always say, never do today what you can put off til tomorrow or next month or next year or. . .

  9. I also like to suggest not to make any decision right now, one thing at a time, get your health back first.

  10. Even if the decision is to sell the TC, I'm sure it will sell a lot better next spring and summer.

    I would want the eye surgery behind me before making the decision as well.


  11. If you're selling it because of the problem with the propane tanks I think now that you know the problem you will be more careful. I'm sure the leak can be fixed with some caulking.

    I agree with the other folks, don't make any hasty decisions.

  12. I, too, agree with Al. Now is not the time to make any major decissions. I think it is better to wait and not regret what you decide. Hope everything starts going your way soon. It sure has been a rough year for you.

  13. Ditto what Judy said.
    Only you can decide.
    Like that wise woman, we hope you come to a peaceful decision in time, too.

    The back and forth is all a part of the process.
    Happy wrestling!

  14. I think everyone is giving good advice here Gypsy girl. Just wait..try to relax...and try to keep positive thoughts. As to the roadrunner photo on my blog, yes I did post a photo. I have no idea why you can see one and not the other as they were both processed the same way and time. One of those freaky internet things!
