Reviews Schmooze!!!

Well obviously not be on the road I will not be able to review any campgrounds or anything of that nature.  So I guess with this page I'm going to have to get a little creative.  Well I can certainly go with the standard Coming Soon in the meantime!!!

Wow It's coming along!!!

Well I must say my little blog is coming along. I now officially have an events page. Truth be told I think my events page is more about me having virtual way of  keeping track of what I may think are cool events around the country. Who knows next year I might actually be able to attend a few events. Me being so eclectic I am sure there will be every type of event known to man, which is ok with me. I hope that you enjoy my collection as much as I think I will!!!

You know it is truly amazing when you know in your heart that you have achieved greatness.  I feel that way about my now 17 year old daughter.  She is such an amazing young woman, truly the best kid a mother can ask for and now even a better friend than anyone could ask for.

After receiving the negativity that I received from that friend of 25 plus years, it was such a switch for me when my daughter came to me last night and said "I wish we had a rv now so we could like go on a trip next week while I'm on fall break and get some of the kinks worked out".  I looked at her with such awe and thanked her for supporting me and not making me feel crazy for wanting to full time.  She said "Mommy, I think it's awesome what you guys are doing and it's going to be great for you".

I have always had faith that as long as I kept my eye on the prize and raised my child with good morale's that she would be an amazing person.  Well that I see has definitely occurred.

I have read about so many different couples and families beginning their new journey I just need to keep the faith that my turn will come around sooner than I think.

The perspective of Security.......

I spoke with an old friend of more than 25 years today and I love the fact that she never lets me down in reminding me of why so much time transpires between our conversations. 

See my friend is one of those individuals that will be in her box (what she calls security) and will always stay in her box and thinks you should be in a box and that you should stay in your box.  The thought or idea of even trying something different, new, or non-conforming is completely out of the question. Security by her definition is living in a 2 bedroom apartment, having continuous light bill, cable bill, grocery bill, with car note and insurance.  And all of those things are fine if they are what you want out of life and they make you happy. 

My husband and I have decided that if we are going to have those things that at least we can see the country as a perk.  We work from home so there is no reason we can't work from a trailer.  I mentioned to her with all of the excitement and hope of support that I could muster, about our plans to see the country and become full time rvers only to be let down by her usual negative thoughts, statements, and questions.  Such as "I need to have security in my life" Security?  Whose to say there is no security in being a full time rver.  I love it when people have an opinion about things that they are not fully educated on.  It felt good to be able to share and show the knowledge I have acquired from just the little time of researching that I have done. 

The one thing about me that is very apparent, is that I am not someone that simply jumps into something without weighing all of the options, understanding the verbiage, and doing tons of research.  You would think after 25 plus years of friendship this friend would know this about me and know that this is where my "SECURITY" lies!
