Today was Annie's trip to the groomer. She hates that, but she knows Santa is coming very shortly and she wants to look pretty. Annie doesn't have to worry about being "Naughty or Nice" because she is always nice. She is a very good dog. Except for the fact that she chewed up our Scrabble tiles when she was a puppy, she's never given us a bit of grief. Here she is this morning, getting ready to go in to our local Petco Store. She was shaking quite a bit.
We picked her up 4 hours later. She was brought out to us by Debb, her personal groomer. Debb is very nice and patient with Annie regarding her fears of going for a grooming. Annie was clean and fresh and looked happy to see us.
We stopped by our daughter's house to pick up our mail and I took a picture of their Christmas tree. It won't be long now, and we'll get to open those presents.
A few years ago, I made all of us some stockings. We hung them "with care" next to the fireplace.
We will be leaving our Tumwater location early on Saturday. Weather reports look good for our trip south. We are ready to get some "road time" again. I'll miss our kids while we are gone, but truthfully, I don't think they'll miss us very much. They have busy lives and we don't see a lot of them while we are here. So, these RV trips we take off on during this Full Time Journey are always something Bruce and I anticipate with happiness. We'll be coming back to reconnect with the family by the first of March. Then we'll leave again!
I'll be posting from the road (maybe daily) but until Saturday, that's it for now. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and hope that Santa will be good to you even if you have been Naughty!
We love the fulltime RV lifestyle, even when we pause to visit our family in Tumwater, Washington. We feel happy and blessed to be able to enjoy this special time living anywhere we would like to roam. Join us in our travels, and leave a comment if you please.
I am a wife, mother and grandmother. My husband, Bruce, and I live full time in our Winnebago motorhome. We began this lifestyle in 2008, after over 20 years of vacation traveling, and we love it. We have family in Tumwater, Washington so we return there every few months to be near them. The rest of the time we like to see new places. We have traveled by RV to 49 states and many areas in Canada. While doing this I try to keep my eye on our health habits. I'm a Lifetime member of Weight Watchers and being on the road traveling brings on lots of temptations. Keeping the weight off and still being able to enjoy the RV life....is all part of the adventure!
