We are now officially full-time RV’ers. The closing on our house was Friday the 15th. Which makes it 5 days as full-timers. Although, we have been sleeping in Winnie since the previous Sunday. That is because we emptied out the house of everything, including our bedroom set. Being we still owned the house and used its shower, I’m not counting those days as being a full-timer. As you can see it has been a very stressful and busy couple of weeks. But WE DID IT!
We still have to stick around this area for a while to finish up my treatments, along with other doctors, optical, and dentist visits. Meanwhile, we are enjoying visiting with our children and grandchildren here.
We are at Brighton Recreation Area, site #138 which is very close to the restrooms. That’s the plus. The minus is that it is a very un-level site, but we are making it work. We picked this site because our daughter Karen and her family came up for the week-end from Kentucky and they like being near the facilities with their large group. We had a very enjoyable weekend. It was so nice getting together with her and her family along with our other daughter Melissa and her son, Tristan, and our youngest son Kevin and his triplets.
Grandpa had fun playing games with the grown grandchildren; Kayleigh and Meghan and the little guy, Wyatt. The triplets; Xavier, Brooklynn and Zachary loved playing with their cousin Wyatt. It’s too far and few between visits.
We had relaxing campfires too.
After all the excitement died down, it was time to get to everyday chores. Laundry was first on our list. We haven’t used a laundromat in years. My are they expensive. We had 6 loads and the total cost was $24.00. Can you say Ugh!
Next stop was for groceries. I now have to watch what I purchase, due to the fact that my pantry and refrigerator only hold so much. I have to plan my meals and stick to it. No more impulse buying. Right now my pantry is overflowing with food from our S & B home. I am trying to use up what I have on hand. Too bad I have so much odd assorted items that don’t go together very well.
Monday I noticed the chassis battery was very low. It’s a brand new battery. This shouldn’t be happening. Kevin went out and bought us a trickle charger. He hooked it up and guess what, it had a safety feature that wouldn’t allow it to charge because of how depleted the battery was. He went out and got a second trickle charger thinking that a different one might due the trick. No such luck. Same thing. I then called Cummins Bridgeway where we purchased the battery. They suggested we disconnect the battery and bring it in. They exchanged the dead battery for a fully charged one. They also said they believe something else is going on for it to run down so fast and asked us to make an appointment to have it looked at. That is our next step. There’s always something isn’t there.
With no Wi-Fi at the campground, I am able to get on-line while having treatment.
Until next time,
