Spring Is Lovely

I can tell this trip is really wearing out my normally very yappy pups. Their woofs at the other dogs, just don’t have the pizazz and excitement they normally have. Junebug, most of the time, isn’t even looking at the passing dogs when she barks. It’s not even a bark, more of a bubbling action. Blurp blurp blurp. I wasn’t sure how they would do on such a long trip, but I am happy to say they have been fantastic to have around. I don’t feel bad when I leave them behind in the RV for excursions they can’t join us on because they are usually happy to have a bit of quiet time to rest. Plus they have AC. I hope these pups don’t get too spoiled with all this action. We won’t go on another long trip like this until maybe next Spring. With all the trouble we have had I am still daydreaming about our next trip. I was thinking the Southwest in Spring.

It’s no secret that me and love don’t mix.
Not after it schemed to rip my heart out and leave me a single father.
The biggest question I have is what to do with forever now that my wife is gone.
As much as I hate it, it’s time for a break from my famous life.
A year off to spend time with my little girl is what the doctor ordered.
Giggles, smiles, and tons of ice cream for the two of us.
And somehow, the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen runs the ice-cream parlor.
But getting involved isn’t a choice.
Not even when my little girl falls head over heels for this woman that’s stealing my every thought.
No matter how much I want to give up everything for the curvy girl that’s rocking my world day and night.
She deserves far more than me, but I’m just selfish enough to want to deny her another lover.
To take up residence in her heart and stay.
It gets even more serious when I find myself playing her fake boyfriend to her uppity mother.
It’s a part I’d love to play daily.
The promise of healing, love, and a big family have me running fast and hard because that same question plays over and over again…
What if fate takes her away too?

No Excitement Here Please

I am happy to say that yesterday, nothing happened. Nothing new broke in the RV. No new sicknesses with any of us. Ahhh… boring is so nice. Dare I even hope that it might be smooth sailing from here on out?  We left Leavenworth around 8am. Nice and early thanks to hubby. He wanted to stop at a few of the local hardware stores to return shower parts he didn’t need and pick up the ones he knew would work. I was still in my PJ’s working at the table, my oldest was asleep on the couch, and my youngest was in the bed over the driver’s cab. We needed better internet and were only going 5 minutes down the road. After those few quick pit stops we were back on the road and headed east on the 90 towards Spokane. The funny thing is my neighbor who has a cabin in Wisconsin, texted me to tell me they were on the 90 going west towards Spokane. They are less of the site seeing type and more of the lets drive 17 hours straight and get home kinda people. I get grumpy if we drive for more than 4 hours. We are staying here in Spokane for two nights so we can rest a bit. I’m hoping we will have the energy to explore the city. It looks beautiful. We had booked two nights here with the intention of white water rafting, but an old high school friend of hubby said he just bought a rafting company and he would take us out when we get to Boise. NICE!
