Retraction of Previous Post

Well after being in the Desert Hot Springs, Palm Springs area and making the comments that if we ever chose to settle down this would be at the top of our list, we must retract our statements.

Heat…dust…wind…OH MY!  Did I mention wind?

We were in the area for just a few weeks and we got so fed up with the wind, the heat was bad enough but then the wind began and never stopped.  Days went by and we could not leave our rig because the wind was 30mph and then gusting to 50-60mph. 

Our home became one big dust bowl and was in constant need of a thorough cleaning but every time we did while still in the area, the wind brought it all back and more.

We are now in the Temecula area where we will be for about 10 days until we head to the Delmar State Fair in San Diego to work until July 4th.  The air is crisp, fresh and a bit chilly but we love it.  We plan to do some touristy things the week prior to Memorial Weekend then stay close to home while the park fills with the holiday weekenders.

Our MiFi died so we are using the resorts and since we had to finally upgrade our MiFi2200 unit because they do not make it any longer, we then had to let go of our unlimited discounted plan.  We were not thrilled but we knew this day was coming.  We are now anticipating our new MiFi 5510L’s arrival and hoping it gives us all the great experiences our old one gave us.

Many years ago we were so set in our ways where change was not always a welcomed opportunity as it is now.  We still find ourselves holding on to the old and not allowing the new experiences in our lives.  This plan change was one we were holding on for dear life, but we now see it as a new and exciting experience for us to look forward to instead of fearing what it might bring us in our communicational world.

We are not the norm when it comes to changes and for most folks they think we change too often, but for us we like pushing ourselves even further and challenging our existence beyond what “normal” is to many others.  Change is inevitable if we want to grow and expand our lifestyle, so the things we had been holding onto are being let go to allow new and exciting experiences to surface and bring us to an even better understanding of ourselves.  Hope you can find that challenge today that helps you grow instead of staying stagnant in your safe little world.  Stretch your horizons and be all that you can be today and every day forward.  We plan to do so with the thoughts and ideas in our minds that we are blessed that we woke up this morning and we have more life to live.

Thanks for following our journey, we do appreciate all of our readers and all the comments too!

Palm Springs area is a great place to be in the winter time though.

I somehow missed reading this post until now and had been wondering where you were working next. Temecula is a nice area and you should be able to visit lots of wineries! We used to live in Riverside before we moved to Washington state.
