Establishing A Routine & A Birthday

Days are starting to become routine.  We get up about 5:00 am and I get Michael’s lunch box (breakfast, lunch and snacks) together while he gets ready.  He leaves about 5:40 am for his long strenuous 9 tenths of a mile drive.  He gets back home anywhere from 5:50 to 6:05ish…just depending on when Jeremy … Continue reading »

Wednesday 5/25 Michael still has several appointments with the VA…the first of which was today.   Of course in order to make that appointment he had to take the day off.  Which meant he had to find someone to work for him…a relief gate guard.  He didn’t have to look any further than his original … Continue reading »

March Madness, Lunch(es), Ginger & Brahmas

Tuesday 3/17 Foggy, foggy morning….so foggy that the fog still hadn’t completed lifted until after 10:00 am! For the last couple of days I’ve had little to no internet access so I’ve been watching a lot of TV.  This morning I watched Gladiator and really enjoyed it.  Didn’t think I would but I was quite … Continue reading »

New Neighbors, Drainage & Family Tradition

We woke up this morning to find that we had a new neighbor….so we now have 4 RVs in our itty bitty parking lot.  There are 6 spots here but actually only 5 that are usable.  After we parked in our spot and hooked up to the power we found that the power didn’t work. … Continue reading »

Ship-Shape & Falling Into A Routine

Saturday 3/14 I had pretty much gotten Michael’s breakfast and lunch ready last night so all I had to do was put it in his cooler and send him on his way.  Breakfast was a kolache and donuts (the remainder of what I purchased Friday morning).  Lunch was leftover chicken fried steak, corn and cole … Continue reading »

I spent a nice quiet morning reading emails, sending emails, commenting on posts, making posts and watching it get lighter and … Continue reading »

Taking Up Residence In Nordheim, Texas

Getting hitched up this morning was not the easiest task.  With all the rain we had a couple of days ago the mud was in abundance and Michael did quite a bit of slippin’ and slidin’ but actually did much better than I thought he’d be able to.  Rather than pull the coach forward through … Continue reading »

Ok…I know the suspense is killing you so it’s time to share about the opportunity that was presented to us last Friday. While Kevin, our service tech, was here to give us water & fuel he said to Michael, “I have to ask you something”.  It seems that one of the oil companies that contracts … Continue reading »
