This the story of our journey, Into Something Good, going Somewhere Over the Rainbow, and trying to Hold Onto Our Dreams. How we got on the way to becoming HALF time RVers! Our Ford 350 super duty diesel truck is our horses, we call it the Beast . Our 2008 34'7" 3 slide Cedar Creek Silverback fifth wheel is our Prairie Schooner Wagon,we call it the Bear. Just like the first RVers, the Pioneers of Yesteryear traveling around the country searching for a rich full filling life! Come along with us for the ride and read about our triumphs and mishaps along the way! About to be Part time RVers in a Cedar Creek Silverback 2008, 34'7", 3 slide 5th wheel, which is our Prairie Schooner Wagon, and a 2006 Ford 350 super duty 1 ton diesel truck is our horses, or oxen, only we have to feed it diesel instead of grass, and oats, which costs a lot more! Retired Air Force empty nesters off to see the good ole USA! Favorite Quote: "Life is a Blank Canvas, Made For Me to Add the Colors" Goal: I am trying to add as many colors as I can to my life!

Well today is Saturday, and I've been busy. I have done the dishes and swept the kitchen floor so far. I am still working on the sewing/craft room, but I did make some headway on Thursday. I have a path to walk through now! LOL! You see it had become the store it all room too! Lots of things got put in there by others who didn't know what to do with them, so that's where they went! Not fair, but there you have it. Anyway, I have all the other "stuff " cleared out so now I can get busy on all the " stuff " that was supposed to be in there! I have sorted out all the craft things, that I am going to give my Granddaughters to use. Lots of paints and brushes, foam cutouts, foam markers, wavy craft scissors, and things like that. Isn't my Daughter-in-Law just going to love me? I have 2 extra sewing machines I need to sell at the garage sale now, unless one of my Daughter-in-Laws wants one. I have so much material, and yarn, that I could quilt and crochet everyday for the next 5 years, and never use it all!

Man, I don't know if Mike is gonna be able to handle this or not?! He gets up at 11:00a.m. eats breakfast, and is taking a nap by 12:45p.m. What a life! Wish I could sleep during the day, but I have never been able to do that unless I've been sick. Well I'm sure I can find something to keep me from being bored. Lets see now, what was I going to do? Oh yeah, work on the sewing/craft room, but maybe I should take a break first. I think I should play some games on the computer, or do some jigsaw puzzles at Jig Zone. Right that's what I'll do, then do the sewing/craft room tomorrow. After all isn't that what Scarlett said in Gone With The Wind?
" There's Always Tomorrow ", Who am I to argue with great literature like that? Must be some some truth to that if Margaret Mitchell put it in her most famous book. Do ya see a theme here? Can ya tell I really don't want to work on that room today? Haha!

It's a very pretty day here in Ohio today also. Quite warm with a nice breeze too. It stormed last night here for most of the night. My dog Dutchess, is very afraid of thunder storms, and fire crackers. She had me up most of the night with her. Whenever it storms she breathes, and pants continously. I was afraid she was going to have a heart attack! We gave her some of the calming medicine we have for her, but it didn't take effect until about 3:30a.m. I even let her get on the bed and lay, but each time she would start to calm down another crack of thunder would hit, and it would start all over. I felt so sorry for her! Finally we were able to go to sleep. What a night!

Neglected Blog:
Oh dear is right, I have neglected my blog for a few days! I really don't have any excuse either, just couldn't think of much to write about! How about writer's block? Oh, yeah I'm not an author, so I can't even use that for an excuse! Ha ha!

Grocery Shopping:
Yesterday we went grocery shopping, and spent $200.00! Food prices have sure gone up! When you figure almost everything is trucked, I guess they have to charge for the fuel. We didn't even get everything on the list. I wanted to make sure we had extra money left over, so we could get the stuff we want to take to Branson, for the rally. We'll wait until next week to do that though. We still have to make a trip to Wally World, to get bird food and dog food so, there will be enough until we get back.

This weekend it is supposed to rain on Saturday, I wonder if we could get out there and scrub the fiver while it's raining, and just let the rain wash the cleaner off? Ha ha maybe if it's a warm rain, and not storming! Mike insists we wash the fiver and the truck before we go to Branson! He doesn't want anyone to see it dirty. I told him it's going to get dirty on the way to Branson anyway! I guess I'm just being lazy! Anyway, if I can still move after that, I guess we'll start packing the fiver. I hope to have all next week to get that completed though. Right now our plans are to leave on the 7th to start our longest trip with the fiver. It's exciting to us whether it's a long or short trip, starting out is always an adventure! I'm not looking forward to stopping at the gas pumps along the way though!

I've been monitoring the weather in Branson also. I only have one word: HOT! The forecast only goes through the 6th right now, but so far it's supposed to be in the 80's and 90's! YIKES!!!! Thats hot to me! I hope that the thunder storms are finished by rally week, and we have good weather! I can do hot, but I don't like hot and humid together!

Well time to get busy on the sewing/craft room YUCK!!! Oh well, it's got to be done! Ta Ta For Now !

Busy Weekend:
I have been busy as I can be this weekend! I helped a friend of mine prime and paint her bedroom, on Saturday and Sunday. I have muscles hurting in places I didn't remember having them! I was so stiff and sore last night I could hardly get in bed. So to all my friends in the RV Dreams chat that's why I wasn't there on either night, I'm sorry, but in my hurry I forgot to get a signed excuse for being absent! LOL!

Memorial Day:
Happy Memorial Day to all! Today my son, Corey had a cookout at his new house for the whole family! There was a threat of rain all day, but it held off while the cookout was going on, and then just sprinkled a bit on the way home before it stopped. If is doesn't storm it's going to miss a good chance, because the wind is blowing, sky is dark toward the east, and it's really humid as I sit here typing this. The kitchen is all packed up except for my wine glasses, and I have to get some more paper before I can pack them. Besides who knows I might need a glass of wine to actually get me started on packing up my sewing/craft room! It's going to be a big job thats for sure! That is what I have to do the rest of this week, because the week after this, we will be getting ready, (packing) to head out for the RV Dreams rally in Branson! We will probably be leaving on the 9th or the 10th of June. At least that's what we're planning right now, but ya know our plans are always written in Jello to leave a little wiggle room! It could be earlier that we leave if we get bored between now and then. We could leave on the 7th and spread it out over several days. Stay tuned, and see what happens with those plans! Ya know they're gonna change one way or another! LOL!
