A glamourous life?

Friday, February 17, 2012

Whenever we meet someone new who is NOT an RVer, we hear, "You live such a glamorous life." Yes, we are blessed to be able to do this and we don't take it for granted. But between trips to the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks, Bisbee and Tombstone AZ, etc. there is still the everyday living.

For example, the last several days have been spent doing laundry, cleaning house, paying bills, getting the new (to us) truck worked on, etc. Yup, real glamorous....LOL! Stu has even done repairs for tire blow-outs, frozen wheel bearings, shackles, serpentine belt, radiator hoses, brakes and more - many of these while traveling. (I love my mechanic....)

Stu is ready for his knee surgery, he had to finally call his doctor and get a second Rx to help with the increased knee pain he's been experiencing. His surgery is now scheduled for March 27th and we plan to be back in Maryland around March 10th for all his pre-op appointments.

I've started doing the Biggest Loser Challenge on the Wii. Bob Harper is kicking my butt...big time. Phew! I'm also tracking my calories, my target range was confirmed as correct. I just have to get the protein up and carbs down. The cruise was the final straw for my weight struggle. Now the only struggle is to fit into my clothes!

Our new (to us) truck is coming along nicely. New tires, shocks, tie-rods and alignment are done. The engine and transmission are running smoothly and we don't anticipate any issues. Ah, that just reminded me...Stu, when you proof read this, check all the belts and hoses. (Don't you love how we communicate....snicker.) He has a name now...since we feel he's loyal, hard working but a little goofy, his name is Scooby!

Sadie is....well, Sadie. She wrote about her tough life today. [giggle]

Finally, please read my other blog and consider turning off word verification on yours. It's no longer necessary and it's become a real hassle for most of us. Thanks!

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

PS> Stu plans to work on his dive photos and videos today so hopefully we will have something for you before the weekend is out. We'll also tell you about the camera he used.


  1. We aren't full timers, and I wouldn't say "glamorous" is the word...I would call it a freedom loving type of life..even the short time we do it!! I'll be Stu can't wait for the surgery and pain to end..

  2. I certainly agree with you about word verification...what a pain! Hope Stu gets some good pain relief from the surgery. Gotta go read what Sadie has to say....

  3. It is fun, but I agree glamorous is not a word I would use for this lifestyle:)

  5. Life happens no matter how or where you live! Love Maxine!

  6. I'm interested in the Biggest Loser Wii game. Can you tell us more about it?

  7. A lot of people don't realize how much maintenance and upkeep owning an RV can be. Not only do you have to maintain what's under the hood, but outside and inside up keep of your fifth wheel is surely and all-day task in and of itself.


Love to hear from you - drop a few words and we'll reply!
