We have moved into our RV full time! But I have to tell you that it has been an incredibly stressful week. We have been working non-stop trying to load the RV and get rid of anything personal in the house.
I didn’t realize what pack rats we are until I started going through drawers. I lost count of how many bags of trash we threw away, how many bags we had to have shredded, how much stuff was donated to the Kidney foundation, how much crap we gave away. And we still have a house full of stuff! Ugggghhh!!
Loading the RV turned out to be a non-issue. We had a whole lot more room than we had thought. Which was quite helpful as Dave originally told me that I had to keep the craft supplies down to 8 boxes – and I ended up filling up 12.
People keep asking us if we are excited and I think we are just too tired at the moment for everything to fully register. You take two out of shape individuals and have them do physical labor for a week and you end up with two exhausted, irritable, and over stressed crazy people who at some point would lose their heads if they weren’t attached.
By the end of the week, we had parked on site at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Campground in Bremen, GA. (The closest RV park to our house). Our RV was a huge mess. We were crawling over boxes to get anywhere because at some point, we just started throwing stuff onto the RV.
We woke up the first morning and the only personal care items we could find were a tube of toothpaste and my tooth brush.
We both hoped that deodorant lasts more than one day, and I made a mental note to buy myself a new toothbrush next week.
The dogs lucked out though. I couldn’t find the dog food, and they ended up having ham for dinner.
They were thrilled.
