It seems lately I've been stuck. I've been going to therapy 3x's a week, it's helping. I still have good days & bad days with the foot, but I know the future of my foot will be good again! I've had obligations of taking care of things around here, which I don't mind, but I've had no real self time lately. I need self time. I'm one of those people that loves to be alone by themself. Fortunately, I am getting that this weekend, but I am also dog sitting multiple dogs this weekend. I don't mind them though. They don't ask me to go run errands for them. They all just want their few moments of attention & I can give that!
But I'm tired of living on someone's driveway now. I'm really looking forward to the day that I'm medically released with my foot. I have plans on taking myself, my dogs & kitties on up to Pa for the spring/summer season. My family is up there & I really need them in my life now. I do not want to live there, I do not do cold! I do not do winter. I do not do ice & snow! But I can do the spring & summer season! I am torn on my RV though. I'm sick over the recent damages it incurred & the insurance company is denying the claim. Right now, I don't have the mental energy to take on this fight. I was going to take it to an individual today that fixes RV's on his own rather than a big RV source that can fix it. But it was supposed to rain, so I nixed that idea. Now it's not raining, but I don't have the funds yet to fix it yet anyhow, so I'll tarp the cab area & wait till the funds come in that I'm waiting on from another source. Then I'll take the RV over to him for an estimate. I just hope it won't be too terribly expensive as I had orginally planned on sitting on the money that is coming to me for future needs. I started to look at other RV's in thoughts of selling mine & upgrading into a bigger unit.
But I just feel if it's affordable, to get mine fixed first. Everything on my RV works. I keep up with it & upgrade things as they are needed. Last year, I bought a new RV fridge & had an RV place install it. I bought a new converter & installed that myself. Bought a new ladder & had it installed. I recaulked the entire rig last spring. Including around the windows. I even reglazed the windows! Changed out the back clearance lights, etc. Year before last, I had new tires put on it. I keep it clean, I even shampoo my own carpeting in here. Lately, I've read so many blogs with folks that are having issues with this & that not working on their rigs, that it kind of scares me to sell mine! Like I said, everything works on mine. I just need to do a few cosmetic things to it to make it look better. Like strip off the old faded, cracked decals. Downside is, it's a small rig. No slides. With me & the animals, it will get crowded once they are all moved back in from the kennel. But I hate that they are having to stay in the kennel in the first place. They belong out here with me! Which is why I was thinking about upgrading into a bigger RV. As I've mentioned before, I originally bought my RV for hurricane evacuations & dog shows. I never intended to live in it or I would have bought a larger one to begin with. I don't mind living in an RV, in fact, I quite like it. I'm stuck. I don't know what do to? Get the RV fixed & live in it longer till I can go up to Pa, work & save more money towards a bigger rig, then sell or trade it in? I'd go for an even trade if I could find one. But then, am I going into a risk of having to fix items on another rig that all have been done on mine? Mine is paid for & I do not want to owe anything on another rig. An even trade or a little cash towards a bigger RV would still work for me if the repairs don't absorb the total amount of what I have coming. I don't know....generally, I'd keep something like this to myself till I figured it all out. But I'm perplexed over what I should do...
I've been trying to catch up on my blogs that I read, but am terribly behind on that as well. I've not gotten much computer time lately due to other commitments. So I'm glad to have the weekend to myself! This morning has been spent on catching up on what I can. I'm off to the store now because I need a serious fix of jalapeno potato chips & will come back & veg out with a movie. I hope everyone is doing well & are having a great life!
