It's Been a Looooong Time

Wow.  It has been a very long time since I wrote anything.  What a lazy writing girl I have been.  I will say that I have been busy the past 9 months. But still, no posts for 9 months is totally unacceptable.  So, I should probably start with what's been going on.

Hmmmm..... first off nothing majorly exciting happened from January to June.  So see, I saved you a lot of boring reading about mundane life.  :)  Please feel free to leave me some wonderful thank you notes.  :)

We did take Autumn out of school in March and started homeschooling her.  That is an adventure in itself.  More of that to come.  :)

In July we went on our first road trip with the rv.  We went from Florida to Indiana with it.  It was definitely an adventure.  When we got there we discovered that our truck brakes went out on the way there and only the rv brakes had been stopping us.  We were so lucky nothing happened.  Then while we were there a storm came through and broke our awning and flooded the inside of the rv.  We had about an inch of water sitting on our slide. That's not even the half of everything that happened on that trip.  We were so ready to come home after that.

Nothing really happened in August.  But then in September we found out  where the air force is sending us next.  After doing some research on where we are going we realized that it will cost us less to move back into a house. The rv park on the next base is almost twice as much every month as the one here.  So after a lot of prayer we decided to sell the rv and move back into a house.

We sold the rv a week ago today and moved into a house on base. :(  But we've decided that just because we are living in a house again doesn't mean we have to go back to a consumerism lifestyle.  Since we sold everything before we moved into the rv, we have no furniture.  Well, had no furniture. We found two couches on good old craigslist.  Our goal is to buy as much furniture secondhand as we can, so that A. we save money and B. we will lessen the impact we have on the earth.

So I'm going to keep the blog because we are still trying to live a downsized lifestyle, but unlike selling everything and moving into an rv, the stuff we are doing now everyone will be able to do.

Until next time....(which I promise will be sooner than 9 months)

  1. Thanks Tonya, for the comment on my blog. I can't believe you read the whole thing from the beginning!!! (I DO get wordy, don't I?)

    Email me your address about the motorhome curtains. Steveio said $20 plus postage for the curtains, but if you want the metal track too that might be difficult?
