Nothing to say....

Thursday, July 27, 2006

Seems folks think I have something to say, I've gotten several messages asking what's up....but unfortunately there have been no changes since I last posted. Well, at least no changes in the house selling area. Only one showing and nothing came of that. As I've said before, I refuse to fuss about it, can't change it anyway.

I have started sending out resumes again...maybe something will turn up. I know, what happens if I get a job and then the house sells. Well, at that point, if I like the job I will stay in the area and find something cheaper to buy...hopefully I will be able to buy a small used RV and get in some weekend trips for practice. Then, when I can better afford it I will take my stab at full-timing. Remember, everything happens for a reason. I'm just waiting to see what the reason is for the delay.

I've been watching TV in the evenings and started putting MONK on TiVo. I love the show and the quirky character. But as I watched the shows recently, I realized that I am somewhat obsessive as well as Monk. Not as bad, but still like things in their place, count letters in words in my mind, like symmetry in things (except when asymmetrical seems more symmetrical - okay, so you have to be me to understand that ). I even took the "Are you MONK-ISH" quiz - yup, it's official. I'm more MONK-ISH than most.

I do like quirky....some of my favorite TV shows and movies have involved quirky people and places: Northern Exposure, Soap, WKRP, Mash, Mystery AK and even The Prisoner series. I once lived in a place with quirky flavor.....if the winters weren't so harsh, I'd live there now. Always something of interest happening.

Till next time - keep on rollin',


  1. Donna, Good For You!! I am jealous. I would love to be RVing around the country. I am looking to trade-in my 5th wheel trailer for a small motor home and try and get out and enjoy the country. I you get up here in Northern Virginia, should get together for coffee or even a Motorcycle ride. I'll keep checking your progress. Tommy

  2. Thank you! See, you did have something you could post.

    I like your list of shows, especially Northern Exposure (filmed almost in my back yard), WKRP & Mash. I understand two seasons of NE are available on DVD & when I find them I will buy them. I'm not much on buying TV shows but that one & WKRP I would.

    As to jobs. Any chance of finding one that is portable so you can still go RVing fulltime & work from on the road? Wouldn't that be the best of both worlds?

  3. I'm a little Monk-ish. A chip off the ole block, eh?


  4. Hi Donna - I love how flexible you are about the future ... work/not work, fulltime/vacation. As you state, all happens for a reason, everything in it's season. I AM pleased you will continue your blog - really have enjoyed it so far.
    We'd like to offer a word of encouragement on the house sale - our 1st offer looked good, but fell thru. We are now in escrow with "the buyers you've been waiting for" according to our Realtor - delightful young couple expecting first wee one (and horse people to boot - great!). Hang in there and all will be well.
    Hugs - L 'n D

  5. Hi Donna,

    Speaking of quirky TV shows, did you used to watch "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman"? It was one of my favorites when it was broadcasting, although I usually don't go much for comedy shows except for "The Simpsons".

    Thank you for your kind comments about my blog and the link. I will add a link to your blog on mine. I had already visited your blog a couple of months ago. I forgot how I happened upon the link.

    By the way, you look very nice in your photo. I hope we can meet up some time on the road.
