That Used To Be Us

I'm in the doghouse.  I was up early and pushing Marti to get ready to leave the Raccoon Valley Escapees RV Park...before she had a chance to finish her second cup of coffee.  She did pitch in, but kept giving me the Stink Eye.

I was just anxious to get on the road to complete the last 230 miles to "home", the Woodsmoke RV Campground, just two miles from grandsons Andrew and Owie's house.  We haven't seen them for a couple of months.

Today was Sunday and in the past, before we hit the road, it was always a sad day.  Sundays were the day that we had to leave our busy, "relaxing" weekend in the campground and head home to start another stressful work week.  Perspectives change, we lived for weekends, now we find them a bit annoying.

We actually have to share the campgrounds with those "weekenders" who are cramming a great time into less than 48 hours.  How rude.  ;c)

We hit the road and were amazed to see all the weekend campers speeding down the highway on the way home.  It was a sad sight to see.


That used to be us.  Now it is no longer.  Everything we went through to get to the full time life that we're loving was worth it.  And seeing Andrew and Owie running to greet us was the best part.

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.

  1. That was me on the way home from yet another weekend trip where something broke... :)

    Some day we'll make a trip where we won't have to report on what broke this time. I hope that happens soon, getting sick of posting negativity. :(


    Have a great week!

  2. And why were you traveling on a Sunday with all the week-end traffic? Don't you know that Mondays are much better days to move on down the road? But I know you were excited to get "home" and get your hands on those grandbabies.

  3. Marti only had one cup of coffee? I don't blame her for giving you the "stink eye". I agree with Sandie. Wait for Monday when all the other folks are already back to work.

  11. Sure can relate to those feelings yesterday. Those weekends just never seem to last long enough when you are working. 23 days left for us to retire and hit the road. Sure looking forward to not having to think about weekends and vacations ending so fast. Have a GREAT visit with the Kids.

  13. It is wonderful isn't it to not care what day of the week it is. But it's also true that week-ends have become the time we actually like the least because they are the busiest everywhere. Circumstances change and preferences change. Life is nothing if not constant change. Enjoy those Grandboys. I know you will!

  14. It is tough sharing the campground with those weekend warriors. I guess now that includes us:)
