Remember all that stuff we got rid of before going full time in an RV. Seems we’ve purchased some of it back!
We’ve been trying to be prudent about how much “stuff” to buy to get back to living in a house but there are these urges that are hard to control. I’ll figure out how well we controlled them when I see this month’s credit card tab! (¡¡Cringe!!)
But the bottom line is that we’ve been having a lot of fun; we’ve been exercising muscles we haven’t used for a while; and we go to bed each evening exhausted. For some odd reason after hitting the sack late, I’m waking up earlier again. 3 a.m. seems to know my name too well and I hear it calling, “Peter…. Peter…. Peter….” However, the good part is that I’m not almost 60 feet away from my sweetie when I begin banging on my keyboard and Peg doesn’t really realize I’m gone.
Speaking of which… I now have enough room to get out my keyboard and mouse and go back to full-sized touch typing. I missed my keyboard! Somehow typing on a laptop doesn’t afford the same tactile satisfaction. Yes — I am having an affair with my keyboard!
Speaking of which… we once again have “real” Internet ( 😆🤔) and after the install I did a speed check. Considering the measly numbers we got with Verizon’s LTE it’s a dream to to have some speed again. I know, I know…. I’m just a speed freak!
I’m intentionally sticking close to home for a while. First it was the moving, then resting up after the move, next we’ll be prepping the coach for sale and probably resting up after that. We haven’t gone to the island (S. Padre is what we always mean when we say that) or any refuges or even any parks. Right now we’re just nesting. It feels good after 5 years to be in a place that feels permanent even if we don’t plan on spending the rest of our lives here. I guess after a while the need to move from one place to another just got tired. Besides, the weather’s been kind of crummy lately.
Thanks for stopping and check in again tomorrow to see whether we’ve gotten any more ambitious! 😇😇😇
