How Do We Learn To Relax?

We are truly trying but it is so very hard to just relax…

We still have a list of things to do and in all honesty, it all could be done in one day, but we need to stretch it out, so we do not get extremely bored. We love the hustle and bustle of living our lives to the fullest but there comes a time where we need to just reflect on it all and enjoy the moment. Something which has always been a difficult thing for us to do, but we are learning. We are learning to live in the moment and not fret about the future because as we have learned so many times that the future will take care of itself, if we allow it to do so.

Our goals have been to work on our honey do’s and to enjoy the moment we are in and not try to force anything. WE CAN DO THIS!

On our honey do list we had to get to the bottom of Maggie’s leaks. The front overhead has been bad and causing mold, but while in storage that area got SOAKED, so we proceeded to pull all the old caulking off and redo with repair tape and roofing sealant for leaks. In a few weeks once we are sure this is stopping the leak, we will once again fix the inside of the upper cab since at this time it is damp and soft.

Another item was our shower, last year we found cracks in our shower pan, so we patched with Flex Seal and it worked great, but we decided to do the entire pan this year and it should be perfect now. Replacing the pan might have been the way to go, but we had looked everywhere for our dimensions and there were none around, so we chose the lesser evil.

 We are also in clean out mode, all that stuff that we thought we needed or might need someday is going to the trash, well on the side of the trash and before we even walk away, it is gone!

Now here is a question, how on earth did we live without this gadget for all these years? It is perfect for the trash, especially while cooking, it stays open so we can dump without fidgeting for the opening, and fills up without falling out the sides and when its full we just remove and tie it up...amazing gadget!

FINALLY, our chairs arrived, and they are perfect, just the right size and so comfortable. The last few choices of ours did not feel so good, hard cushions or just uncomfortable, but we almost didn’t get these to arrive on time. It had been scheduled for Friday from the beginning, so we waited patiently…NOT…but we did wait and around 3pm while we were tracking the packages, the notice changed from Friday to possibly Monday delivery. That was NOT going to work since we are leaving here on Monday. I called FEDEX and we finally got them to deliver them on Saturday and they are all we expected them to be…thank goodness.

Patience is NOT either one of our best qualities and the more we try to RELAX, the worse it gets. We don’t think we ever would or could retire completely, we enjoy getting out amongst people and keeping active. But at the same time, we are not those people that participate in the resort activities. We like working, a reason to be there and to make some money. We are in hot pursuit of some sort of work once again that will keep us traveling and enjoying the lifestyle we love, we might also settle in again if the place is right, but for now we are just chilling!
