As a result of some unfortunate recent events, (that are still in the process of being “resolved”) I’ve been thinking about my on and off again dream of full-time RV living. My boyfriend and I have talked about this many times before but for some reason or another we always push the idea aside. A little back story on us……we’ve been together for 6 years. We have two beautiful children together, Bubby and Doodle. (Not their real names) Bubby, our son, is 4 (going on 14) and Doodle, our daughter, is 2. We started out our family young and unexpectedly but we’ve done everything we can to move forward. As of right now I’m a licensed daycare provider and he works part time at a gas station (looking for new employment). We just moved into our beautiful home (renting) in November 2014 by the grace of God and Babe’s (my boyfriend) hard work. He worked two jobs, 18 hour days, to get us out of our old place and somewhere, we thought, would makes us happier. Then we decided that him working that much was crazy and since the daycare was getting up and running we were making enough for him to stop. Life has been better here, that’s for sure, but I still dream of leaving. Especially since my hours that I work are 7am-6pm and then I clean, dinner, get kids ready for bed, do it all over….every weekday. Weekends are just a scrambled mess of packing everything I want to do into two days, totally putting off housework, and stressing Sunday night to get the house spotless for daycare Monday morning. Not really how I dreamed it would be….
So anyway, since these “events” took place and made some things a little more difficult we are just striving and trying to come up with our “happily ever after” life. We realized that we had lost touch of what was actually important to us. We started thinking about what is going to make us happy, and then what do we need to do to make that happen. The main idea is what would we want from life, don’t worry about the how, just about the “what” and with faith and hard work we will make it happen. We will accomplish all our goals. Our goal is to live in a RV full-time with our family focusing on love, family, God, and being happy.
