Merry Christmas

I just wanted to wish you out there in blog land a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, a very happy in whatever you celebrate this time of year.

Packing up the rig has been a very slow process this year.  First, it’s been cold and wet.  I didn’t really want the slides out because the toppers might get wet and freeze.  Besides it’s not pleasant working out there in the cold.  I have put a heater, one of those that looks like a mini radiator out there.  It does take the chill out of the air.  Yesterday I turned on the propane and turned on the furnace, but set it low.  Again just to take the chill off.  I had 3 of the 4 slides out but yesterday it was quite windy and I noticed that the toppers looked wet and slight frozen.  So brought all the slides in.  Today is still chilly but sunny, so I’m heading out there in a while to put the 3 slides back out. 

I also had my 8 year old grandson here as my son and daughter-in-law were basking in the warm sun in Jamaica.  He was here just over a week.  So needless to say that kept us busy.  He usually takes a school bus from his home to school but because his school is literally around the corner from us, we walked him back and forth.  I gave him a choice to continue taking his lunch or come home here for lunch.  Well of course he wanted to come home for lunch.  So that make 4 trips a day to get him.  He’s a good kid, but still when you’re not used to kids being around that length of time it does tire you out.  To say nothing of the mess!!!!! He went home last night.  I’m enjoying the quiet of the house.    LOL.

We still are planning on leaving on the 27th.  But it all depends on the weather of course.  Our first day takes us just over the border into Michigan. 

I’m also having everyone over for dinner Christmas Day, so that will be a very busy day for me.  There will be 15 of us in total.  Big turkey, lots of food, lots of laughs.

So again Merry, merry Christmas to everyone.  Hopefully next time I blog we’ll be on the road.
