To Read or Not To Read

I’m an avid reader.  Reading relaxes me.  I don’t read a whole lot during the day unless I’m waiting at an appointment or if I need to waste some time.  But almost every night I will read for about an hour before I go to sleep.  My mother and her mother were both avid readers … Continue reading »

Appointments, Groceries & Comics, Oh My!

Monday again…  Today starts a 12 day work week for Michael.  The company has drill this weekend so when that happens he loses his weekend.  By next Friday he’ll be pretty pooped.  The good side is that after this drill weekend he only has 5 more to go! I had a doctors (nurse practitioner actually) … Continue reading »

Lazy Sunday

Not much going on today….I guess it would be a rather lazy Sunday.  We slept later than normal and then relaxed for a while before I made breakfast (bacon, eggs, biscuits & fruit) that we didn’t eat until about 11:15! Michael worked on a few outdoor projects – the biggest of which was cleaning out … Continue reading »

Little Projects, Dinner & a Play

Another beautiful day in Alabama!  Windows & door open to allow the fresh air to run rampant throughout the house!  Most of the day will be spent outside enjoying the sunshine!  Ahhhh…. Michael took a day of leave yesterday (have to use it up before he retires) and we didn’t do much more than watch … Continue reading »

A Day in the Life…

We had a beautiful day here in Montgomery, Alabama yesterday – with the sun shining and the high reaching about 76.    Unfortunately, Michael had to work and was not able to enjoy it in his entirety . On days that Michael has to work he usually gets up between 5:30 and 6:00 with me getting up … Continue reading »

Tornadoes & TVs

Ok…so I’ve stalled long enough…it’s time to post my blog.  I missed yesterday so I really need to get this post written and published. Alabama was hit by horrible storms again yesterday.  Tornadoes hit Birmingham (about 90 minutes north of us) and Millbrook (only about 20 minutes to the west of us!).  It was pretty icky … Continue reading »

Home Improvements

Thankfully Michael is a rather handy fellow as he’s been able to make a few ‘home improvements’ to the coach. 1.  One of the first things he did was to add a Surge Protector with Voltage Protection & Remote Display (Progressive Industries) which protects the coach and its contents with any issues with power as … Continue reading »

Nothing Better To Do…

Beautiful temps (mid 70s in January???)  in Montgomery, Alabama today…however…we have rain in the forecast ALL weekend!  Any outside projects had to take a back seat so I worked on making plans and reservations for the beginning of Michael’s retirement! In August, Michael is taking a few weeks leave and we will be going to … Continue reading »

Not Without Issues…

Before we ordered our coach Michael did a lot of research and joined the Heartland Owners Forum.  He asked a lot of questions and got a lot of good information.  One of the tips was to do a complete Pre Delivery Inspection (PDI).  Michael compiled a list that was 10 pages long.  We took it … Continue reading »

Full-Timing – How Do You Do It?

I’ve had several people as how would could live in a 5th wheel and not kill each other.  Well first off…you really have to like the person you’re living with as it is a rather small place.  Thankfully, after almost 27 years of marriage Michael and I still like each other and actually prefer to … Continue reading »
