I Should Be Packing

Instead, here I sit writing a blog post and wondering what I should start packing next. Hubby received the official job offer from HR and accepted it last week, so it’s all official now and we know for a fact WE ARE MOVING!.  But what we don’t know is when.  We are guessing he will needContinue reading “I Should Be Packing”

Georgette and the Great Southeast Adventure – Part 9 & 10

We were in for a looonnngggg drive after leaving the Greensboro Campground, but we didn’t know just how beautiful of a drive lay before us. Our trip took us north thru North Carolina, into Virginia, West Virginia and on into Ohio. The drive was absolutely spectacular.  One of the most scenic drives I’ve ever been on, but I have noContinue reading “Georgette and the Great Southeast Adventure – Part 9 & 10”

Georgette and the Great Southeast Adventure – Part 7 & 8

Our time at Camp Wilderness was done, we were packed and on the road again.  This time our stop was the Greensboro Campground in Greensboro, NC. The campground was clean and simple, but sat right off the interstate.  While there was certainly traffic noise, it wasn’t as noticeable as I expected it would be.  TheContinue reading “Georgette and the Great Southeast Adventure – Part 7 & 8”

Georgette and the Great Southeast Adventure – Part 6

It was our last day at Camp Wilderness 😦 We very much enjoyed the campground.  It was clean, well-kept and the staff was friendly and helpful.  The kids enjoyed running around, climbing, playing in the sand and simply being outdoors. One of the reviews I had read was a complaint about being so close to theContinue reading “Georgette and the Great Southeast Adventure – Part 6”

Georgette and the Great Southeast Adventure – Part 5

We woke up to another beautiful day and it was clear that we would be spending the majority of our day at the campground.  There was swimming to be done, but the bigger reason was LAUNDRY!  The amount of laundry six people can accumulate in 5 days is amazing.  All that laundry in approximately 300Continue reading “Georgette and the Great Southeast Adventure – Part 5”

Georgette and the Great Southeast Adventure – Part 1

I had a wonderful plan in place. First, I would take a lot of pictures along the way.  Then, after the kids were in bed, I would post about each day’s adventure. It really was a wonderful plan, but I took far fewer photos than I had hoped and none of the campgrounds had great Wi-Fi.Continue reading “Georgette and the Great Southeast Adventure – Part 1”

First Night with Georgette

Last night we went camping at the Weeks Driveway Campground. Because the anticipation was high, followed by a high level of excitement, sleep was minimal.  However, the primary goal was to take a trial run before heading off to a public campground.  Spending the night with Georgette allowed us to learn more about her andContinue reading “First Night with Georgette”

NEWS – Turning a Corner

NEWS!  In this case is stands for North, East, West, South.  Direction!  It’s something I’m struggling with lately in regards to my blog. I’m in a rut and I feel a bit lost on which direction I should take my blog.  I want it to be in a place that makes me happy, because ultimately I need to be happyContinue reading “NEWS – Turning a Corner”

A Moment of “Oh No” Turned Around

I decided to start taking horseback riding lessons.  Last Saturday the girls had a make up lesson so I was able to get back into the saddle after 9 months of not riding.  I had forgotten some of the saddling details, but felt more comfortable in the saddle than I had previously. Monday was a regular lessonContinue reading “A Moment of “Oh No” Turned Around”

RVing and Living the Homestead Dream

While our upcoming RV adventure is exciting, there is still a big part of me that can’t let go of living our homesteading dream. What if we were to tow a chicken coop with some chickens for fresh eggs every morning?  Of course it’s doubtful chickens would lay eggs in a coop traveling down theContinue reading “RVing and Living the Homestead Dream”
