|Yesterday was our first work day, back at the cave. It seemed strange going back to work. We have really enjoyed doing whatever we wanted to do each day. That is the freedom of being full-time RVers which we love. With the baby coming in Feb, we truely have some important decisions to make in the near future.
With Jennifer & Steve going to be parents and us grandparents, we have to change our plans so that we can be back in Missouri for the blessed event which should be Feb 21st, 2008. We now need to be in Llano Grande from Oct 15 to Feb 15, and then leave to return to Missouri. Few campgrounds are open all year in this part of the country, and we know the weather will not be to our liking in Feb. I am glad that we have this all season coach, with good insulation, dual pane windows, heat pump, etc.
In any case we need to locate a campground to live in beginning Feb 20 of next year. We think perhaps Bowling Green, MO, which is a bit farther away from the kids but close enough for us to be there for them if we are needed.
Of course, the other end of the problem is that we now need to be in Texas, at Llano Grande, in Oct, in order to take advantage of the four month special price. The result of that is that we must change our travel plans. We had planned visits to Colorado, New Mexico and Palo Duro Canyon, before heading to Concan, TX and finally on down to the valley.
Now, I am uncertain about our routing, so we have things to talk about over our morning coffee.
Also, I have mentioned to Marilyn that I would like for us to stop working around Sept 1st. That would give us a month to do the things we still need to get done around here, including a visit to relatives and friends we haven't seen yet.
We also need to do some sorting and retrieve a few things from the storage shed at the farm. I have to get the new bed cover installed, and find some mud flaps for the truck.
Marilyn has no problem with not working. She is ready for fun again. :)
I have one more thing to share with you this morning. That is a promise to get some of the e-mails answered. I need to reply to the messages we have received and get the e-mail caught up. Even Marilyn, who usually stays right up to snuff, is way behind on the e-mail thing. I also have several people that I feel a need to talk to. I have to get my act together. :)
OK, that will just about wrap up this entry. It seems kind of jumbled with my thoughts going in many different directions. I need to get to the Alaska journey in a seperate entry, with pictures. So for now, I'll leave you with the thought that every day is a new adventure. And I can't wait to see what this day has in store.....
