Today, I washed the motorhome.
She seriously needed a bath!
I also had to get up on the roof, lay down on the roof, so I could reach over on the overhead cab area & clean off duct tape reminants. What a job that was! I probably should have gone to the store & got some kind of adhesive remover, but I hadn't showered & just wanted to get this job done!
So I grabbed my tube of Goop, a plastic scraper, a towel & a flat razor blade. It was a job, but I did get it all off! Too bad the RV place didn't do that. They did some, but not all.
Then I had to wash the RV. I had black streaks, but that black streak remover stuff really didn't work well.
So I just did the best I could & will work on those again later as the entire RV needs waxing anyhow.
I'm just not up to that kind of work right now though. I over did it today & could barely walk once done. Foot swelled up on me, making walking painful. I took a shower & took some pain pills & took it easy afterwards. Love my TENS unit, it really helps. (it's an electrotherapy unit that uses electrodes on a stick on patch - feels good for injuries & sore muscles)
Need to get some compound tomorrow so I can get caulk, sap & scrapes from my hood. I guess, their scaffold scraped the truck part of the RV! I swear, I complained to them the last time about scratching the truck, but fortunately, the compound they used took care of it. Why are they so rough? Is it because my RV is older, so they don't care???? Well I do! I know it's not new, but I still want it in the best shape possible! The sap didn't come from there though, but I could not give the RV a good washing until that leak got fixed first.
Supposed to rain tomorrow. I hope it won't be bad because it would be nice to get some compound & get the hood taken care of. I do push myself too hard, but these things are important to me. I've got to take care of my little house!
Speaking of houses. While on the roof, I looked over the roof on my friends house. I remembered all the maintenance that a house requires. Every so many years, you need new shingles, they need painting, etc. Nah, I'd rather just maintain Ellie instead! Even if I had some land to park her on, I'd still be happy just with RV living! I'd be happy with a nice little deck for outdoor furniture, plants & a little landscaping as a docking station. A little building for a washer & dryer would be nice too.
My puppy dogs would be happy to be let out into a lovely fenced yard each day like that too. Maybe one day....then I could always go on trips & no worries! Just come back when I'd feel like it. Hmmmm, I act like I have a retirement thing going & I don't! Ha! Once I am able to return to work, I'd like to find a job that I'd work here in Texas over the winter season & take off during the grueling summer season. That would be nice.
I should have treated my tires today, but that's just a simple spray on treatment, so I can do that tomorrow. I debated on if this is ok for the tires or not, then read that for an RV that sits a lot, it's actually a good idea to use the treatment for protection. I also keep them covered when sitting.
I hope maybe by Wednesday to take her in town to get the generator done. That will be one less thing to worry about then.
The Oscars are on now. I found part of it to be extremely distasteful! That boob song. How awful for those actresses! They were NOT happy with it, nor was I! Very, very distasteful in my book.
