Excuse my absence

Standard

I have been pretty busy with my other responsibilities like taking care of my family and the RV, taking care of my mental health (yoga!!!), and, most importantly, I started a certificate program online. I am almost done! Hopefully only one week left and then I plan on getting back into blogging about our fun life. I have some fun things to talk about on my revamped blog: new couch, yoga in the RV, and the new resort that we have been staying at lately.

Rocky the RV

Standard

Yesterday, we went to the RV dealership to try and get our dream trailer for good price. Our dream trailer is a 2014 Rockwood that was just put of the price range that we wanted, but we just really love that layout and had not found anything comparable. So, we tried one more time to haggle and get a lower price, but they wouldn’t budge. My husband and I decided that we needed that extra living space which is why we decided to go with that one trailer, which is a relief since we would have needed to travel further to find a good RV.

Let me introduce to you to Rocky:

Large living space that has an electric fire place and a pop-up tv


Electric is a perk since then we won’t have to use up all of our propane for heating.

Sofa pulls out into a bed. It isn't the softest, so I will most likely be buying some comfy pillows


Both kids will be sleeping with us, so this can be for guests or for if our son wants some space as he gets older. I really hope I can find some comfy alternatives for the couch. It’s a little stiff.

This is the feature that convinced my husband.


My husband was still on the fence when touring RVs until he saw this layout. He loves the idea of so much floor space because of the two slide outs here, and also having a recliner. Everyone needs a recliner.

Clearly, there is a lot of room in the living area.

Lots of drawers and extendable counter

Microwave and two cabinets


At first, I thought, lots of storage!, but no…there isn’t. I guess when you are looking at so many trailers, though, that two cupboards seems spacious. It’s all relative.

We love that the chairs can be moved instead of a bench


We will be using a booster for our youngest and it will be nice to be able to pull the chairs in the kitchen for the kids to stand on and help out with things.

Small sink and medicine cabinet


We really don’t spend that much room in the bathroom. It will be an adjustment to only have one toilet.

We wish we had a tub


I keep on trying to think of ways to get a tub for the kids to have a bath, but there really isn’t a way. You give and take when you minimize.

Our roomy wardrobe with drawers


We plan on limiting the amount of clothes we bring, which really won’t be too hard for us since neither one of us are big into fashion. It might be s little challenging with the kids, but we will manage.

Now that we have our trailer, our next step is to limit our belongings. We will be getting a storage unit, but we still don’t want to be wagging around a lot of things that we don’t use. Once our debt is paid off, we will save money to buy nice, new furniture…after we get a house, of course. We’ve already sold our couch and kitchen table plus a couple shelves. We are also giving away a lot of things, too.

Our issue, as a couple, is that we are terribly lazy. Really. It’s a disease. We need to get up and just do it. We have tons of toys and clothes to sort through. I don’t feel like the difficult part will be letting go of our belongings, but actually sorting through all of the junk. So. Much. Stuff.
