Clawing my way to the top of the deep fog is how I feel today. I see the light at the end of the tunnel and starting to feel "normal" for whatever that is worth for me. hahahahaha
I am still going to lay low and be a hermit for a while, until this flu outbreak passes. The LAST thing I need at this time of my healing is to get the flu. The doc said to avoid any crowds, wash hands and get plenty of rest. Heck, even the stylus for signing the tablet each time I went for Xrays is probably caked full of flu germs. I slathered myself with the antibacterial solution multiple times at each step of the process when going in for the xrays three times last week. Touching elevator buttons, door handles, ATM buttons and checkout stylus for signing at registers is also a no-no. (especially at the pharmacy counter!) Probably better to hang out inside my own house and keep away from any flu bug possibilities.
Now for the other part of my title.... Upcoming Travel Decisions!
Steve and I had a long talk about upcoming travel plans. Usually we head south or out to the desert this time of year for 6-7 weeks. Leaving winter in Wisconsin and getting south is tricky, timing ourselves to weather tracking, clear pavement and time off work. This year could be different, we could leave anytime now that Steve is retired. Also, Steve's job driving for the county is flexible and he can leave for periods of time and come back to work again. But...... we may not leave for any trips this winter.
Steve's elderly dad is moving from one house to another. We have been helping with some of the steps to get his possessions transferred. We helped with some of the garage items, vehicles and garden equipment. Next will be the delicate and breakable things. It's 70 miles from us to get over to his old house, then 150 miles to his new house, and then 120 miles back to our house. So that totals to 340 miles round trip each time.
The Big Move of most of the household stuff is coming up in early February, so we are going to be assisting with that as well. He is using a moving company for a lot of it, but needs our help with the supervising, loading, unloading, placement etc. Getting him settled in the new house, in the middle of winter is going to be exciting. They just got 25 inches of snow there last week, and more to come of course.
Steve and I decided to save our pennies and take maybe two trips this upcoming spring and fall instead. We don't ever get out west to see the northwestern states. So perhaps we will do that instead? He also mentioned a trip to our friends in Tennessee and spend a week or two. Hmmmmm
STATES WE HAVE TRAVELLED TO IN THE MOTORHOME:
Here are some of the trips we have taken, with our Microsoft Streets and Trips leaving mouse trails of where we have been....
I know for my RV blog readers, my blog has gotten boring and nothing much about RVing. I see the RV readership is dropping off. But I am going to fix that now. I am going to redux some blogs I wrote a few years back.... all about the motorhome modifications from A to Z in our rig!
I will intersperse them with some blog posts about Campground Reviews that I do of each place we have been. Now I will have some interesting blogs for my RV readers.
As for my fiber readers, I am working on a quilt and will soon have pics of it as I put it on the big frame to get it quilted and finished. I am also knitting socks, weaving rugs and towels, and playing with my spinning yarns.
Steve has a few ideas of projects for Our Old House: maybe repainting the back hallway with some fresh paint. Thinking of some trim ideas to dress up the exterior this spring, And maybe even some more organizing and detail work in his garage to make more of a workshop area? We will see.....
Anyhow, stay tuned for some upcoming blogs now that I am feeling better!
