So today is two months exactly since we moved into our house. It doesn’t feel like two months at all. Time has just flown by. We were wondering how we were going to adjust to living stationary, when we had been traveling in the RV for over four years. You’d think it would be quite an adjustment right? Hardly seems so.
Greg says I am happier than I have been in a while. I was getting so tired of being cooped up in the RV. Don’t get me wrong. I love that we spent that much time on the road. We met so many wonderful people and saw so many places we had never seen. Gotten to know the sub cultures of America. It was awesome! However, we found ourselves working six days a week at the torch (which we still do, we love that too), and not sight seeing as much or doing as much. It got to be confining. If we were just traveling about and exploring, that life would still be awesome.
I just love having a house to ramble around in. Our pets seem happier too. Especially our bird. We have a 12 year old, almost 13, Gold Capped Conure. Miniature type parrot, for those of you lacking in bird knowledge. Anyway, she use to have to stay in her cage while we worked all day. Not good to have the bird free while open flame was happening. So now she gets to hang out with me all day, while I do computer work, and with Greg at night watching the tube, while I torch. She is quite happy. The dog would be happier if we got carpet, but she is pleased as well. Plenty of places for her to sleep. She changes rooms every few hours.
All in all, we are quite happy and have not seen much of the cabin fever set in. Is it because we are doing work to the house to fix it up and that keeps us busy? Maybe it is because we are still getting to know this area and find new stuff all the time? Maybe it’s our happy flowers out front, that we planted? Maybe we are just nesting. My goodness, I even wished for a sewing machine today. Now that is a crazy thought!
I can’t wait for visitors to start coming. So far we have three lined up in the next two months. We are excited to show off our place. 🙂
