Day one, again?

I started to write this on my phone on Sunday, but we had some sick Autumn issues and I didn't have the chance to finish it.  So, here we go again.  Sunday was day one, again (so today is techincally day 4).  We are officially fulltiming in our RV.  We moved in after church on Sunday.  Then yesterday we went to the beach house, cleaned it out and left the keys.  I think that  makes it feel a little more official. 

We are staying at Famcamp on base.  Today the kids and I are at the clubhouse because Zach worked from 7 pm to 7 am last night and is trying to sleep.   Plus there is internet access here.  The kids are playing pool, well Gavin is trying to play and Autumn is getting in his way.  :)

We've had some learning experiences already.  We keep popping our breakers by overloading them too much.  It's taking some getting used to, but we are figuring it out.  We are also learning how to take fast showers so we don't fill our grey water tank up too fast.  We are not at a full hook up site, so we have to either borrow a portable tank to drain our galley and grey tanks or move the whole thing to the dump station.  I think we're going to borrow the portable tanks. 

But that's that for now.  Now that we are here and have easy internet access I'm hoping to get back into the habit of being able to update several times a week.

Until we meet again...

Good afternoon. I hope things are well with you. Autumn and I went to Tennessee this weekend to get Gavin for Christmas break. My mom and sister brought him down and we spent the weekend with them there. It was a nice visit, but I was happy to come home. 

We told Gavin about moving into the rv and he is pretty excited about it.  We will be staying in it tomorrow and hopefully the next day too. We haven't stayed in it yet, so it will be our maiden voyage. Everyone is really excited.

I am listening to the kids playing in here right now and I am starting to second guess living here. ;)  There will be no where to hide from them at.

I think we have everything we need to start our lives in here. It's kinda hard to believe we are so close to living in here.  I will update after our first voyage and let you know how it went.  

Until then.....

18 Days To Go

So I am still typing this on my phone.  It's such a crazy life right now. I have been working on Christmas cards all morning.  Autumn and I are headed to Tennessee on Friday to pick Gavin up for Christmas. :) We are meeting my mom and sister there for the weekend.  I am so excited. Zach has to work, so he can't come with us. :(
We spent some time working in the RV yesterday. It was so much fun to be out there in it. Autumn loves it. She plays in her "room". We are telling Gavin when he gets here for Christmas. I want him to see it before we drop the news on him. It's a lot to take in and I want it to go as smoothly as possible. He will be here when we move into it. I hope that will help the transition too.

Until next time. :)

Moving in Three Weeks

So apparently I can't figure out how to type anymore at the end of my post.  Maybe someday I will figure out how to be smarter than my phone.  But it doesn't look as though today will be that day.

Hey there. I hope everyone is doing great. We are still in the beach house with no internet access so posting is still sporadic.  I am actually typing this post on my new phone.  It's interesting to say the least.

We were planning on moving into the rv at the end of January, but we've moved the date up to the end of December.  We are going to start the new year off in it.  I am so excited. It's only 3 weeks away.  :)

There has been some other changes too.  We now have a doggy in our family.  Her name is Meesha.  She is a 5 year old pug.  She may very well be the best dog on earth.  She is sitting and cuddling with me as I type this. I love her.
