Day by day....

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

Daily life is about all that is going on here. Saturday night I had the first symptoms of a bladder infection, drank a ton of water and went to bed. Sunday it seemed to be better although I felt under the weather. Monday at 6 am, it woke me with a vengeance. the the ER (Memorial Day). Doing better today and established myself with a local doctor's office.

Stu has been busy working on getting lights functioning on the back of the BRAT Rack. That entailed multiple trips to Tractor Supply and Wal-mart. It's still in the works....LOL!

Our contractor got back with us, he's behind schedule due to the heavy rains but expects to get to our work soon. Unfortunately, we may be out of town when that happens. We leave on Friday for NC, come back on Tuesday late. Then on Wednesday we're back on the road, picking up Sadie in Cookeville and heading to Covington, LA. We should be back sometime the afternoon of the 15th. One week later we leave the area till next fall.

The weather has turned very early summer (same as last year except we were in Montana). Will be in the low 90's the rest of the week and over the weekend. Definitely beats severe storms though... Pretty much the same in Louisiana...only hotter and even more humid. We are wimping out....we booked a hotel for our visit there. LOL!

So don't worry if you don't see any posts for the next 2 weeks....just means we're out having fun!

Oh, one last thing. We had a surprise visit today...two blog followers stopped by to meet us. They are former full-timers who settled into northern GA. They still RV...they just stick within a 100 mile radius of home so they can pop back for medical visits, etc. Nice folks...her name was Connie but for the life of me, I can't remember his. Sorry!!! We enjoyed chatting with them and were glad they took the time to stop by and meet us.

Till next time - keep on rollin',
Donna and Stu


  1. Donna, my daughter has had numerous urinary infections, and these days she drinks a glass of cranberry juice every day. It seems to ward most of it off. When she travels it is worse, so she steps it up to about half and half juice and water, in other words 3 or so glasses of juice and 3 or more of water. When possible she drinks white cranberry juice as it is supposedly better. And watch the juices ... many are not real cranberry juice, but apple or grape with some cranberry in it. It might help you as much as it has her.

  2. Ditto to what Lyn had to say. They are no fun!

  3. You can also purchace cranberry tablets that are even stronger than the juice. They really help!

  4. I seem to have graduated from UTI's to Kidney Stones at age 18...and have had 6 so far. Take good care of those kidneys..good thing we get 2!!
    As for wimping out..oh no..that's not wimping out. That there is executive decision making! We stayed at a Hilton Garden Inn when we went to visit our daughter, and it was pure Heaven..No cooking, making beds, cleaning, setting up and breaking down or running from storms..But..I do love my Hiker for most travel!

  5. Sure hope that you're feeling better... I have only had a UTI a couple of times in my life and they are NOT fun! Have a safe trip and we'll be here when you get back to bloggin!
    Have fun & Travel safe

  6. You are smart to get some quick help for the UTI, as it can turn into much more serious problems, as I found out. AZO is now an over the counter product that helps with the pain. Best wishes for recovery and safe travels.


  7. Take care of yourself, Donna, and have safe travels.


We're waiting.....
