Time Just Seems To Be Flying...

Thanksgiving has come and gone so quickly and a chill is in the air, yes, even in Phoenix. We have been keeping busy with the decorating but took the time to update most of our reviews. We still have plenty more but check out the many that have been completed. (Click on the title to be directed to our ZeeMap)

Thanksgiving gave us the opportunity to feel the gratitude that we take for granted so many times in our lives. We are the most luckiest people in the world, we have a tendancy to forget just how much we have in our lives and dwell too much on what we do not have but Thanksgiving puts it all back into perspective for us.

Thank you God!

We Are In…

And camp is all set up. We will be just chilling out at camp until events begin to open on Thursday and then it’s shopping…racing…shopping…racing…racing…racing. We got a really good spot again this year, even better and we didn’t have to park on the road for an extra week. We decided it wasn’t worth all the rock and rolling on the road and the extra days like we did last year. We arrived on Saturday at 10am…staging inside began at 8am…we had no line at all.

We staged until Monday when they began letting rigs in at 8am…we finally got in at around 11am, We were set up within an hour and just watched all the others set up and drive around looking for a place to set up. We have some good folks around us, some are just a bit on the loud side but for the most part we have good neighbors.

We are near enough to Basha’s…we have plenty of space…the restrooms are near but distant…we get the morning sun on our patio and the evening on our backsides where we have rigged up a window shade…we only have one of the big lights and it’s in front of the rig and not in our bedroom windows. Life is good and we are excited to be here!

Too Much Time On My Hands…

This song has been playing continuously in my head for the past few days and I just don’t know why.

It is a bit stressful being back in Phoenix with the uncontrollable urge to call my daughter to see if possibly, just possibly she has worked through her issues and would allow us to spend some time with our grandson. On one hand I want to call her to just get it over with but I am not ready to hear that she has not worked it out and is still angry. Or, that maybe she no longer works at Denny’s and then I would have no way to contact her at all. Or…the list goes on and on.

When does life get any easier? When do I get what I have always dreamed of having? When is it my turn for the Good Life? What really is the Good Life?

As much as I complain about not having this, that or whatever…I still have it very good. Forgetting how good we have it many times clouds my judgment and then clouds my vision as well. We are living our dream life…not as we had planned but we are doing it, our way! We have our health…we have each other…we found our soul mates…we find work whenever we need it…we travel…we have fun…we laugh…we dance (not as often as I would like, but we do at times)…we have our faith…and above all else we grow spiritually more every day. The list can go on for pages and pages. So with all of this being said, please God help me to stop whining so much about the things we don’t have and learn to appreciate all that we do.

We hope you are all living your dream life. Let us know how yours is progressing and we will continue telling our stories.

We are living the lifestyle that we dreamed about…

Just not exactly the way we dreamed it would be and the funny thing I realized this morning as I read a story in a recent article in RV Life Magazine, the November 2007 Online Digital Edition, “Authors Seek Inspiring Stories” is that they were, as many others were living our dream life while we continued struggling with ours. Here is a link to that article, http://www.rvlife.com/digitaledition.html

We are doing our dream, the only difference from us and the others are that we are doing it without the paychecks or support from major corporations, giving them a rig to use while on the road and a big paycheck to secure them. We are in fact doing it all on our own because a few years ago our sponsor backed out but our heart’s desire needed to be fulfilled. We are not allowing anything to stop us from attaining our dream life and pursuing all the things we know we can have and do. Trust me, it is not easy doing it this way, but knowing we are doing it no matter what is the best thing we could have ever done in our lives. Yes, it would have been and still would be a lot easier if we could have a rig given to us along with a steady paycheck but until that happens we will continue to live this new lifestyle because it is in our blood and there is no stopping us.
