I just realized today that we passed our 6th month mark last month! I really must have just been functioning on auto pilot to not think twice bout it! I hate when that happens. Anyway since we have hit 6 months I want to share our goals for our fulltimeing adventure and some what not to dos in rving.
What we’ve learned NOT to do-
– Don’t under any circumstances leave the awning out while you’re gone even if it’s not windy… Trust me one this. 😉
– Make sure all cabinet doors are secured before travel… Especially ones near slides.
– Make sure when filling black tank to rinse it (just for good measure) you do not leave the bathroom unattended… Again trust me in that.
– When pulling into a campground make sure fence posts are going to be far enough away and or all gates are open before turning in. Your camper will thank you.
As you can see we’ve made our fair share of mistakes, but the way I see it is if we don’t make mistakes then we wouldn’t be learning. If you aren’t learning then you aren’t growing so I feel like we re doing just fine in this thing called life. I’m sure we will be making plenty more so stay tuned, but for now here are our (my) goals for the future. Not real far in advance but I would love to finish this project of painting I’ve taken on.
Goals for the Future-
– Finish painting
– Organize RV
– Finish hanging curtains
– Hang decor
– Paint bunks for the boys
– Paint bathroom
– Paint bedrooms
– Make up my mind on what do with the cabinets ha!
As you can see I have quite a bit left to do to make it homey. It’s coming a lot though as I have painted the majority of the living room area and one curtain is hung haha! Maybe I’ll try to get it all painted before Christmas. That’s a big maybe as I have plenty to focus on, school, cleaning, organizing etc. it’s a busy life as a stay at home homeschooling parent. I wouldn’t trade it though.
So I’d like to apologize for being that slow blogger. Besides the fact that we really haven’t been up to much, I don’t want to just be a boring blogger so I’ve been trying to make sure I have good content for everyone to read. So in turn I don’t post often, but on to making this RV a home that I love.
Since this is our home now and I love pretty things I thought it was high time to start making this RV more homey and me. What better way than remodeling and painting, right?
My inspiration as of late as been bright and airy if that is such a thing. I have a big thing for blues and whites. Beachy theme I guess you can say. I love all the white cabinets and neutral walls with just lovely decor. I can’t seem to get enough of it. I won’t be painting all the cabinets right away, mainly just because I don’t feel like tackling that by myself yet. My main plan is to just paint the walls and hang my new curtains for now. We have plenty of projects to get going too so I’m sure I have plenty to keep me busy for a long time.
First I have taken down all the ugly border that the manufacturer put up… Really who designs these RV’s? It left a good amount of sticky residue so now I’m working on getting it off so I can finally paint before it gets too cold here.
We’ve also taken out the couch and dinette that was in here and replaced it with a bigger comfy recliner couch. Haven’t replaced the dinette yet with table and chairs but its on the list. I don’t think I’ve spent this much time on Pinterest since it first came out haha. I have so many ideas not enough space for it all.
Next on the list of projects is to work on giving the boys a space they can call their own. I plan on making curtains for their beds and letting them choose paint for their walls in their bunks. Also we are thinking of tearing out the dinette in their room too and giving them extra floor space to spread out as it is pretty cramped in there and they don’t tend to use the dinette too much. They definitely don’t use all those toys in the benches of the dinette. Also we are going to get some stuff to help organize their room as there isn’t a whole lot of organization going on in there at the moment.
Any way not a whole lot going on around here hopefully soon I can get a lot done on the remodel and make it look blog worthy around here ;).
