Still Alive, Nothing New

Sometimes life is just that: life.  We're living it here at our homebase in South Carolina.  I've taken the Journey out for a good spin up and down the highway to keep the batteries charged up and everything in good running order.  It was hard to put it away, it seemed to want to keep on going.

I now have to get ready to winterize it in the next few weeks, hate to do that, it makes it seem too permanent to not be using it.  Fortunately we have plans to hit the road quite a bit next year, February to Disney World,  April/May to California to visit the grandgirls, then later summer to New Jersey to hang with the Jersey grandgirls and their new little brother, due to arrive in early January.  Yep, grandkid number nine.  Need a spreadsheet on the computer to keep track of the birthdays.   I'm sure we'll squeeze in more trips as the year progresses. 

So I'm keeping busy with my volunteer days at the local USO, lots of fun with the workers and the troops coming through.  Making the best use of my free time now that we're retired.  Plus, it keeps me out of trouble...

The back is doing very well, just being careful not to overdo bending and especially lifting.  The spine doctor told me that the disc is in bad shape, he repaired the herniation part but it could happen again and then I'd be facing rods on my back.  Don't want that so I'm being very good at following his orders. 

The poor Journey still is dirty, I may just break down and take it to a Blue Beacon truck wash and let them clean it.  I've used them in the past and they do a pretty good job, but don't do roofs.  I like to wash the Journey's roof before I do the sides, otherwise the roof dirt drains down on the sides.  But until I'm back in full washing trim, the roof will have to wait.

So that's an update.  Looking forward to Christmas and all that shopping for the grandkids.  Thank goodness for Amazon!  😉
