Finally A New Blog

It has been awhile since we have blogged and mostly it is because we are working very hard once again. I know we told ourselves that we would not but life has a way of shoving us in that direction. I do have to admit, we are getting much better at resolving this issue than every before but we are still not 100% perfect yet.

Changing our plan and not being able to stay in Michigan and work with a great group of people was very hard for us. We were having fun and meeting some really fabulous people and even though I knew we were really needed here it still felt a bit forced for us to be here. The responsibility was higher here in Minnesota and that was one of the reasons we were loving it in Michigan. We were workers there and once our hours were put in then we were free to come and go as we please. Now managing is an entirely different way and we are responsible for being here 24 hours a day for 5 days a week, thank goodness for our Assistant Managers for our 2 days off every week.

Anyway…

Since we have to stay in the apartment, we decided to use this time to renovate our RV and make it more comfortable for our needs. This was the best thing so far that we have done for ourselves.

We replaced the microwave with a smaller unit that uses less watts and had to come up with a unique idea to hide the space caused by that decision…pretty clever design that goes with our décor, NASCAR.

We removed the couch and turned that side into our office area.

We bought two nice recliner type chairs with our old ottoman…perfect for us, as you can see very relaxing too.

We are still in the process of renovating our shower area…testing the paint to hide the old yellowing of the pan since the pan is in great shape otherwise…this paint is suppose to work on this plastic, time will tell.
We are covering the walls, replacing the faucet, shower handle, adding a shower curtain and a few other little items we found in our research. There will be more photos when this is completed. We are also looking to put in a sky light dome, this part of the renovation may wait for another time since it was an after thought.

We removed the closet in the rear to accommodate a bigger bed and what a great difference this makes.

We had a chance to try it out this week when we took her for a ride to get new shoes or tires as most folks call them. After the bubble in the old tires we were not comfortable with them so we chose to upgrade to Good Year Wrangler’s with the E rating for all 6 tires that are suppose to help with the load. Nice, beefy tires!

Back to the great difference the bed has made…we had a chance to sleep in our new Queen Pillow-Top bed and it was marvelous. Not worrying about hitting our heads on the overhead closets…being able to stretch out without a closet in our backs…and the mere comfort of this bed is beyond words. It has been a very long time since we have had such a nice peaceful sleep in our own home, it has made us realize how much we have and all that we have to be grateful for.
Thank you God!
