Another week has gone by and actually it is easy to tell when Phil and I begin to think about moving on down the road. We start talking about our “next trip” and looking at the small atlas in my purse when we are waiting for our food in a restaurant or at home, he is cruising Streets and Trips on his computer. The “what ifs” start to flow in conversation and our many options begin to surface, tumbling out in every day banter. For us, this full time RVing way of life is THE BEST! We can go anyplace we want, whenever we want with the most important consideration being the weather. But, what about gas prices you ask? We don’t like them, that’s for sure but they are in fact—a fact of life today and since we refuse to give up our dream—our life-style per se, we will make concessions and change a few things in order to survive this obstacle. Simply put, we have just slowed down and when you think about it, what is wrong with that?
Update on sister, Dixie: The day trips have been a complete success and an Easter outing in scheduled for today. These days outside the facility have made a huge difference in Dixie’s frame of mind and when I talked to her last, she quipped, “Going back to the nursing home, I know how dogs feel when they go to the pound.” We are happy to hear the Staph infection numbers are decreasing with each test so although it is still resisting the antibiotics, it appears the medicine is winning the fight. No definite date for the hip replacement surgery except we know it will not happen until the Staph is gone.
