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!

Three Into One:
Wow, I can hardly believe it has been 3 days since I posted! I can't even say we have been really busy for an excuse. We have done a few things around the apartment, like painting and stuff like that but nothing major. We did enjoy the 3 days that were warm here, and now we're back to the 30's or a bit higher for the next few days. It was sure nice that Mike could saw his boards and trim outside, so he didn't have to do them inside. I had a feeling it was going to get colder, you know that old arthritis never lies! LOL! I hate it when it gets warm for a few days then gets cold again. It makes you want it to get warmer all that much faster. It should just stay cold until it is ready to stay warm for the summer. We have flowers and plants budding all over and now with it getting cold again it could ruin them. I love spring once spring has sprung! I am so in awe of nature's rebirth every spring and I love to watch it! It makes me want to get out and dig in the flower beds and plant flowers. Of course it's way too early for that!

My Mom is going to have to have back surgery in the next month or so. She saw the neuro surgeon on Tuesday and that was the result. They will shave off the bone and the bulging discs that she has to give her some relief from pain. She will still have to be careful with her back for the rest of her life, but they think she will have a lot less pain, pinching, and numbness down her leg where the nerves are being pinched by discs. She will also have an MRI today to see what the spots on her ovary and kidney are. So keep your fingers crossed for me, that it's not what some spots are. We should find out tomorrow what the results are, and if they need to do a biopsy on them. Lets hope they're just cysts and nothing more dangerous! She doesn't need anything else to worry about since she is already worrying about the back surgery.

Wally World Day:
Today we have to make a trip to Wal Mart to get some things we're out of. I would like to stop at the used book store too to look for another book from the author that I have started reading. I have read several books by Karen Harper, and she is becoming another favorite. If you like books or novels that are kinda what I would call mystery suspense, and not too much blood or gore you might like her. She has had some interesting story lines so far. All of the books and authors I read are different and it's nice to have a variety of styles to read, so it keeps it interesting. Plus I read faster than some of them write the books, so I'm always looking for other authors to read. I've also been crocheting quite a bit, but that will go by the wayside once it gets warm enough to be outside and walk or ride a bike. I tend to pick up my crocheting while I'm watching tv, cos it keeps my hands busy. Well Mike is almost ready to go so I'd better get myself ready so I'll see ya all soon so stay tuned to see what we're up to until we meet again...

Quiet Weekend:
Jamie and Kaea arrived at about 2:30p.m. on Friday after picking Kara up from school early with a fever. Uh Oh! Well I started off getting medication in her with her antibiotic, and her fever broke about 10:00p.m. She spent al ot of Saturday sleeping, but was starting to feel better. After sleeping most of the afternoon she felt well enough to go out to dinner. We went to the Golden Coral buffet for dinner, and we were out for about an hour and a half. For just starting to feel better Kara ate very well, of course that is her favorite place to eat. When we came home Kara again fell asleep and slept until 11:30 p.m. and then went to bed! LOL! That was our Saturday. Kara and I got up early and left Papa sleeping in. She felt so much better this morning and was complaining it was just in time to go back to school in the morning! Haha! Papa and I spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing after Jamie picked Kara up. I had forgotten how much care a sick child needs so I was exhausted! Of course now I feel like I need to disinfect everything so we don't get sick all over again. I'm hoping that since we had it, that we built up a little bit of immunity from it. Anyway that is our weekend to date.

Daylight Savings Time Begins:
We lost a whole hour of sleep last night! LOL! We will get used to the time change in a couple of days though. It is a sure sign of spring and the weather this weekend was beautiful! We had some rain showers this evening, and are supposed to get over 4 inches the next few days. All I gotta say is at least it's not snow! Well I think I'm gonna call it a night. Tomorrow will find Mike going to his doctor appointment and me I hope getting the wall painted that I didn't get done last week. So I'll see ya soon...
