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!

Summer Sorta:
Well this has been the strangest summer I can remember in quite some time! The days are mild, the nights are very cool, low 60's and lots and lots of rain! Our tomatoes are alot of vine and not too many tomatoes! We are getting cherry tomatoes but not any big tomatoes. For them you have to have warm days and warm nights too, and we just haven't had that. For the next week out of the seven days, five of them the Weather Channel is calling for rain and storms! While I won't have to water the tomatoes then, we won't be getting any to eat either.

Look at the picture at the top of this blog cos that's the only place you will have seen our fiver this spring and summer. It hasn't left the drive way since last fall! Man oh man I am so bummed about that and I hope that we can get out at least a few times this month and next. It will be rough trying to get work schedules, and school starting together so we can get out of here and still have everybody taken care of. Jamie has started a new job so we're not sure what hours he will be working for a while. At least Jamie has a chance of getting 40+ hours with this job instead of the 20 he has been getting so it is a step in the right direction! Kara, Autumn and Tehya start school on the 19th of this month. So I may have to start taking Kara home and getting her in bed for school depending on Jamie's hours again. The Grand Girls and I have used the fiver for sleepovers a few times this summer but that's the only use it has had.

Chillicothe, Ohio:
Mike is in Chillicothe at his Mom's staying with her through Wednesday, so I'll be by myself with visits from Kara when Jamie is working. So I'll probably be spending time on Facebook & Farm Town trying to stay sane. It will be hard with no transportation, and I know I'll want to go somewhere just because I'm stuck here without the truck. LOL! Doesn't matter that it sits in the driveway most days, and I have to make myself go somewhere, it is just cos I know I can't that I'll want to, if that makes any sense. Hehe!

My Mom is doing great, and is behaving with her back. She is not straining it at all, so lets hope she continues along the same road of recovery. Her doctor is pleased with her progress and even increased the weight she can lift to 15#! So that is awesome.

Apartment Update:
The apartment is beginning to look about done. The laminate floor will be the last thing to get done. The ceiling is done and just about all of the construction, all that is left is the 2 windows where the garage door is. When Mike gets back from his Mom's he and Jamie will get that done and be able to take the garage door out, and replace it with the wall and 2 nice big windows. I am happy with my kitchen, and have even been doing some baking since the days haven't been so hot. I will probably have to turn on the air sometime this evening, as it's supposed to be in the 80's and very wet and humid the next five days.
