We have our RV, check that one of the to-do list!

Our RV is now in our possession! Over the weekend we spent some time cleaning it out and doing some general deep cleaning. We are taking it in to be worked on probably Wednesday and expect it to be done in a week or so.

We got such a screaming deal on the Winnebago! It is from the 70’s and certainly doesn’t look chic but it is in such good condition and was such a great price. N still can’t believe we found an RV for under $2,500, I knew we would and am so glad we snagged it.

I see my house floods & hair dye post got quite the response! Just so you know my mom is just being nice, I do have gray hairs and the occasional cottage cheese on my butt when I am not teaching. Moms just say nice things because they have to… Thanks mom.

Lucky for me I am teaching right now so I’ll be cottage cheese butt free for a while. I am working to choreograph 2 shows right now. It is keeping me busy and it will be some extra cash for the move. Good thing cause we have spent $6,000 so far on this move and we have another $4,000 to go.

Spending $10,000 on a move kind of makes my stomach turn but this is a killer opportunity for us. We’ll just have to scrimp the first few months to pay off the debts we’ve incurred making the move happen. While I am rambling on about the move lets have another look at the countdown!

Holy crap 25 days! N has about 16 working days left and we only have 25 days left in arizona, you are right! Time is a flying!

  • Will you keep the winnebago after you get there? Or will you sell it off?

    25 days! Wow, remember when it was 71?

  • I vote for keeping it. You can have some awesome weekend travels for next to nothing by going to state parks and camping.

    Have you made your final route yet? Just wondering.

  • For everyone’s info she doesn’t have “cottage cheese butt”! That I will agree is not accurate. Thanks Mom-In Law! The Winnie is great. I think she’ll provide a good time rambling across the Midwest and do plan to hang on to her to make some regional trips. It’s an area of the country we’ve never seen before so it will work out great for explorations!

  • N~thanks for the freecylce stuff 🙂 The Winnie looks great in your driveway! And I so seriouly doubt that T has ANY cottage cheese anywhere… I agree with N and Mom.

  • The RV looks great and it makes so much sense to keep it to do some local exploring! Oh, Talina – I saw your dance routine videos and there is no cottage cheese on you unless you spilled it on yourself while you were eating it. 😉 But we are all most critical of ourselves, aren’t we?
