Today Geoff and I went out to look at more RV's. After much discussion we have decided to get a 5th wheel instead of a Class C. Buying used we can get a much larger 5th wheel for the same payment we currently have on our travel trailer. Standing between two 5th wheels, on the lot, talking with the salesman. Of course ALL the slides are out on the ALL the 5th wheels. I turned and crashed my head into a slide. I'm grateful it didn't break the skin, but surprised too. It left a really nice bump and put a bit of a damper on my day.
We then went to Tuesday Morning. The TM nearest my house just closed, and I was hoping against hope that this TM would still have some of the great stamp sets that everyone on YouTube was talking about. No luck. But of course I found a few things I couldn't live without, including the Tim Holtz dies that punch windows and shapes into chipboard. That was $6.99. They also had the gingerbread and ornament dies for $8.99 but those just didn't ring my bell.
In the same shopping center there was a Red Lobster. I LOVE Red Lobster, and since hubby was such a good boy in the store, I offered to take him out for an early dinner. I usually order the lobster pizza. This particular RL, although friendly and wonderful like you would expect, burns their lobster pizzas. I thought it was a fluke when the first one came out. They were really behind in the kitchen and I assumed someone just let it cook a bit too long. They brought a new one, and it looked almost as bad as the first. The cheese isn't supposed to be brown like this. I showed them their photo in the menu, and told them my cheese had never been brown before. They didn't charge us for the pizza, and were as gracious as they could be.
Do you like RL's lobster pizza? Does this look right to you?

Okay, along with a myriad of other fears, I am afraid of food poisoning. I don't think this makes me odd, or crazy, or paranoid either. I have found that men in general, and my husband in particular, are a whole lot braver than I am. Case in point: today hubby ate a variety of Chinese take-out from little white containers which had been in our fridge since September 20th. That's nine, count 'em, NINE days ago sports fans.
It's about 10 hours later, and he went to sleep without even a belch, so I guess he was right - there was nothing wrong with it. Personally I obey the three day leftover rule, alongside the "if in doubt, throw it out" mantra.

...but I don't love blogging. There, I said it. I just don't enjoy it. Perhaps because it's something I know I should be doing - kinda like sex. Just kidding dear. Blogging is good for business though. It keeps my name out there in cyberspace.
My blog posts tend to be deep, dark and brooding -- at least they begin that way. Then I try to wind up on the philosophical side of the street. So.....I am going to make my blog inspirational from now on. Maybe it will be a photo like you see above, or a pretty piece of art. Or....happy news from my life.
If you know me at all, you know I love dogs. Big dogs, or even little dogs if they aren't yappy or hyper. The love of good dog is an amazing thing - comforting and calming - a true blessing.

The hubs and I went to the RV Show a couple days ago. We currently have a 28 foot travel trailer. This trailer was our first ever RV purchase. Didn't take long to realize that what we really wanted was something we didn't have to tow. An RV where we could all be in the same place, and where we could get up and move around.
The photo above shows the style we are looking at now, otherwise known as a Class C. An RV itself is not a cheap thing, but what really scares me is just the maintenance on them. Like, one tire costs as much as four good car tires.
Jacob is in his senior year of high school. Won't be long till he's off to college and we can hit the open road. Does this mean my golden years are just around the corner? Wow....
