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!

The Last Two Days:
The last two days I have been working in our screen room off the bedroom. I have all my plants out there now, and it has been cleaned and changed around. I moved our small chest freezer to one side, and then I had room for my largest philodendron on the table. It needs to be re potted and cut back because I had to loop part of it over the rafter it was so long. So it goes from the coffee table to the ceiling and then half way down again! For now I just put 2 old lawn chairs in there, but it is going to be so nice to be able to sit in the screen room in the evenings and not have mosquito's feasting on us! LOL! We can also leave the sliding door open and get more air into our bedroom and no bugs! I need to do some touch up painting in there, but that will be one of the last things after we get done with the apartment. So I have been really busy the last 2 days. Well I did take time off to go get my hair touched up, but that's all. LOL!

I am going to take it kinda easy today. I just have to do dishes, clean the bedroom, and bathroom so that won't be too hard. Then after dinner I plan to just hang out on my computer ( hopefully in the RV Dreams chat room) if I manage to get the things done that I have in mind. One of the girls I used to babysit is graduating from high school on Monday evening and then her parents are having her party on the following Saturday, so I need to find something to wear, sounds like a shopping trip to me! Ha ha! That's not going to happen today though. LOL!

Congrats Speedy:
I am so happy for Speedy that his last day of work is today! I hope and wish that his retirement brings him and Sherry some much needed rest, relaxation, lots of fun, happiness, and travel for a very long time!

See Ya:
Now I really have to get to work so I can get things done because I want to be on hand in the RV Dreams chat tonight to say Hi to all my friends and say Congrats to Speedy should he make it into chat after a hard day of celebrating! LOL! So until then friends...

Hey There:
Well, I was all caught up on my blog last Thursday! Then I got sidetracked working around here and have been going since then! Most of the weekend I did yard work and things that had needed done around here for some time. Gary did clean out the gutters this weekend so at least he did that, but only because I told him it needed to be done. He doesn't seem to "know" how to do yard work and stuff like that. Well he does know how to do it he just doesn't and I'm tired of him letting the yard go, and it was killing me seeing all the work we did over the years go down hill. He wasn't happy that I did it, but at least he knows now I'll take over if he doesn't continue to keep it up. If he can't or won't do the maintenance on the house/yard, then is he really ready to own a house? I guess time will tell the story, but I was sure mad that he let the yard work go so long, and now he knows it too! So that's what I worked on all weekend. On Saturday we went to get some tomato and pepper plants to put in a raised bed. We haven't had a garden for years, but I'm so tired of not having fresh tomatoes and I want to can some salsa this year because we use a lot of it. I think we can take care of a few peppers and tomatoes. Well I guess I'm done with my rant for now. LOL!

Today is errand day and we're out of a lot of things so we have to hit a few stores and pick up some things. So I need to go change my clothes and get ready so I'll see ya on the flip side! Oh yeah, I'm counting down the days only five more days of school left after today, so I'm going to be able to get back to chatting with all you Dreamers out there soon! YIPPEE! Until tomorrow people...
