Working hard to get on the road

Well it is Monday, June 3.  We are now into our 2nd week of living in our RV.  We are still sitting in the front yard of our stick built house with the deadline date of July 8th for departing from this life to never look back.  Right now, the stick built house is a real burden.  We are only really using it as a bathroom and shower.  The only other reason that we go in there is to sort items for sale and throw away and to see if there is anything else that we need for our RV.

Our old house has a huge fenced in back yard and our dogs loved to go through the dog door and run and play all day long.  But since we moved into the travel trailer, they do not seem to have a desire to go back there any more.  It is convenient to let them go back there and take care of business, but they prefer to stay with us 24 hours a day.  I thought it would be a huge adjustment for them to lose their yard, but they seem very content for us to walk them.  So, we are doing our best to keep them with us.  When we leave this house, we aren't going to have a yard for them to romp in unattended, so we may as well adapt, also.  The funny thing is that even after the hundreds of miles that we have run, walked and hiked with Nova and Zorro, they still seem uncomfortable pooping in front of us.  Occasionally, they will do it at the dog park, but rarely when we are walking.  I am sure that will change soon.

Really, this move is more like a major detox.  We have modified our lifestyles to living in a smaller space and we are really enjoying it.  Kat loves how close everything is in the kitchen and that it takes 15 minutes to deep clean the whole inside of the camper.  We really have a routine going already.

Well, we worked hard today, getting rid of junk.  So, I am going to cut this short.  In an upcoming posting, I will talk about how we are optimizing and organizing our space.

Until next time Kit 'n Kat.
