Adjusting to Our New Lives

We are slowly getting settled in our new home. The yard is coming along nicely. Pictures are gradually getting hung. Things are being arranged.

It's nice to wake up in a comfortable home each day. It's nice to have room. It's nice to have comfortable furniture. It's nice to be warm when those unrelenting cold fronts continue to howl through, dropping May temperatures to the low 30s at night. Will winter ever leave?

But yet, there's a little part of me that wishes we were still in our RV.

There's something about the RV lifestyle that I really like; don't get me wrong, there's plenty that I don't like. I have to admit, though, that I am already getting a bit bored in our new home; every day is basically the same. That's something I'll have to adjust to. In the trailer, we really never got bored, at least, not for long.

In most of our travels, we usually stayed in most places for no more than a week. On a few occasions, we may have stayed up to 2 weeks. Only once did we stay in one place for a month. At the end of that month, we were really ready to move on. And that is the nice thing about living in an RV. You go someplace, like Santa Fe, and plop down for a while. After you've seen everything you want to see there, you hook up and move on down the road to the next interesting place and start all over again. Yeah, that's kind of nice, and it's going to take me a while to get over that.

We're happy in our new home, though, and we hope to stay here for a while. You never know when we might get that itch again. When we do, be looking for us down the road.
