Grant me patience....NOW!

Friday, April 28, 2006

I'm normally a fairly patient person. I sit quietly in traffic, waiting my turn. I yield the right-of-way to merging traffic, subscribing to the "take one, give one" method. I stand in line, studying those around me in order to pass the time more quickly. Cool, calm and collected....most of the time.

But now that I have decided to sell the house, buy an RV and hit the road full-timing, I want to do it NOW! I want my house to sell so I can take the next major step, finding and buying my "Lily Pad".

I spend hours searching, browsing, reading all the various want ads. I've found the perfect rig at least a dozen times. I'm sure I'll find it a dozen or more before this is all through.... My Camping World catalog is already dog-earred. I've bought the "perfect" rechargeable lantern. I've bought my Corelle dish set. I'm evaluating all my kitchen appliances to decide what stays and what goes. I'm starting to sort things out to send to my kids. I'm putting things on eBay that I no longer need, things that will sell better on-line than in a rural yard sale.

I'm SO ready to make this move....I'm SO ready to have the final yard sale....I'm SO ready to start the next adventure in my life. So, Lord, please grant me patience....just do it right NOW!

Till next time - keep on rollin',


  1. Froggi Donna way to go, I admire you, hope our paths will cross one day.

  2. Go for it Froggi Donna!! With an attitude as postive as yours, you're bound to succeed ;o))))

  3. Donna, It's great that you have the courage to take to the road. There's another lady who has done the same thing and has written a few books about her journeys. Her name is Sharlene "Charlie" Minshall.

    Have you chosen an RV yet? Gulf Stream, PleasureWay, Roadtreck, Winnebego, and several others make a Diesel RV 20 mpg or better. Worth a look. Not to large, but easy to handle, goes almost anywhere.

    I haven't settled on the final rig yet...not knowing when the house will sell slows me down. I do appreciate the input. So far the tops of my list is Allegro but that is due to having owned one and knowing their quality. But I am still searching & researching. Thanks for the note!

  5. Hi Donna, I know how you feel. We've been planning to full tme RV for 10 years! Just about there. Hope to be on the road within 12 months. Hang on, it will happen soon. Christine

  6. Donna hang in there - we are just beginning fulltime - waiting to sell our house - attended Life on Wheels last week. Good luck.
