Moving along

It is amazing how much better everything seems to move along when something finally goes right! I’ve had a wonderful day today, although I did some pretty boring things – found a copy machine (I simply have to buy a scanner), took care of mailing quite a few things at the post office, and spoke with the insurance agent and my contact in South Dakota, Terri of MyDakotaAddress.

If I have understood it correctly, I wouldn’t have to license a truck camper in SD, but I would have to pay the sales tax to the state where it was purchased: 6% in SD, but -0- if I buy it in Oregon or Montana. Needless to say I’ve been researching Oregon RV dealers and craigslist.

I returned the tights to Costco from my last trip there. I was mistaken that they were mid-rise (I am ok with mid-rise), but they were low rise and I just wouldn’t ever wear them. I came out of the store with the dog book I mentioned in a previous post. It is called “The Hidden Life of Dogs” by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, and I have already read a couple of chapters. Fortunately for me, the print is darker than it is in some books – not bold, but dark ink – and it is much easier for me to read although I do have to be in a decent light or preferably by the window or outside in natural light. It’s a fascinating book, to me at least.

I would like to thank everyone who wrote words of congratulations and encouragement on my sale of the 5th wheel. I appreciate all your good thoughts. I hope I will be able to get back to at least a part-time RVing life because the yearning to travel increases weekly rather than subsides. There is SO much I want to see and places I want to go, and I’m hoping I can find the perfect RV in which to do it.

The weather should be in the 70’s up through Friday, which is exactly how I like it, and I hope I can be a little more energetic than I’ve been lately. Today was an exercise day, and I went up to 3# weights in each hand. I think I will need to find some additional exercises to do on an alternate basis, although I haven’t really tired of any of them since each exercise only occurs once a week. The stretch DVD arrived, and I can’t wait to get back to that as well.

I didn’t get to cross everything off my list for today, but accomplished enough to feel good about it. Tomorrow will be a busy day.

  1. I'm waiting to feel better when everything goes right with my current situation. 🙂 I feel like I've been trapped in this parking lot forever! I know it's only been a week, so I should quit whining. I will, when I'm back on the road. 🙂 Come join me!

    Have you tried photographing papers instead of photocopying or scanning? That's what we've started to do.Also I don't know if you said you'd tried the glasses for magnification. I find that if I want to thread a needle or read in low light I need them. They're $1.00 at the Dollar Store.Glad you're more positive!

  3. A little good news can go a long way! Good luck searching rv's in Oregon too!

    You sure had a full day of errands and activities. It probably felt a whole lot easier to buzz through those now that a big weight has been lifted. Isn't this cooler weather delightful? Last week was totally unbearable. 😦

  6. Love your blog picture. Where is that one? And isn't it wonderful when a day actually turns out to be a good one. Pass along some of the things you learn reading your book. My girls are probably too old to do much changing but you never know.I have a list of to do things today but it keeps raining so I don't want to leave the house. I think the weather is telling me I've overstayed my welcome here in NY and it's time to head further south.

  7. I like your header pic:)) Yes, it's alwys a welcome pschycological lift to the spirits when things go well & fall into place. Guess if life was like that all the time we wouldn't appreciate it so we gots to have a healthy dose of bad stuff going on to know how great the good stuff feels when it comes along:))
