Just need a little more room.

We had a wonderful time with the two doggies last week and we miss them soooo much.  But we are glad to be home too.  I am able to get son back on schedule!  Its going to be a very busy week though.

I have spent the better part of the morning and afternoon getting everything that we took with us back into place.  Well, I am still not done, but I just needed a break.  I was able to get a lot of it put into the areas they need to go into.

Last night, we also put together a bookshelf type thingie where you can put cloth bins into it to store things.  We decided to use this in our living room as a way to store some of our non-hanging clothes.  I still need to get 3 more bins.  We had purchased it a while back, just never got around to putting it together. We think this is going to work out really well.  I fits perfect under the window and the TV fits awesomely on top of it.

We also stopped by our storage room and picked a few Christmas items to place around the “condo”. I had a really tiny Christmas tree that I would put on my desk when I worked.  I brought this and put it beside the TV.  We had to have a little Christmas spirit in our camper even though me and hubby are not in the Christmas spirit.  We have to remember that we have son and he still believes, so we need to keep things as normal as possible.  I put a few other decorations around the TV.  I also have the Christmas stockings that I haven’t put up yet.  All in due time.  Lol

Well, break is over!!  Now I have to feed my hungry young’un!  Have an awesome day and thanks for reading.

    It looks like you’re doing a great job at utilizing all of the space you have to its maximum potential! Plus, decorating will probably make you feel more at home. Enjoy PCW! Christmas and winter sure are different down here. I’m starting to remember what it was like when I was a kid in Hawaii. All those years in between in bitter cold climates made it hard to remember 80 degree winter days. I think it took these past 11 months just to thaw out. 🙂

      We are trying to max it all out. lol Yes, decorating makes it feel a little more homey and Christmas decorations are helping with the spirit a little. But its just hard to get into the spirit this year. I miss dad and will not have my Christmas call with him for the first time in forever! That makes me sad. Im trying to deal. lol Yes, the winter is very different here. I tell people that I wear shorts year round with flip flops! lol Usually, if we get cooler weather in Central Florida, it will be around January/February time area. Now, if you went back North for a visit during the winter, you would freeze!! lol

      I’m so sorry about your dad. That is sad, the first Christmas afterwards. My dad died back in ’95 and his birthday was very close to Christmas too. My best to you all on that. As for the weather, YAHOO, I am loving it! But I know that summer will come again. I really would love to snowbird. I seriously do not look forward to that heat and humidity again. Y’all who live down here all the time are saints! 🙂

        So Christmas is hard for you! Prayers for you during the season. It sucks! It just totally sucks. Dads was so unexpected. He was out on a boat and fell over and drown. He was a really good swimmer, but had a procedure done on his shoulders not long before and couldnt move them to swim. My heart broke the night I received the phone call. It still breaks. 😦 On top of it, some of his siblings verbally attacked me at the funeral home because I was not able to come home within the last few years. There were a lot of lies they were trying to say that he said and I know from others it was not true. I will not let them waste space in my head. Yes, the weather is wonderful this time of year. The only reason we can stay here year round is that we dont come outdoors very much during the day. HAHAHAHA If we do, it is into a pool. This past summer, the pool at the apartments we were in felt like bathwater! YUCK.

    HA, and EW, bathwater! 😀 I only go out early in the morning and after the sun goes down. You’d think I was a vampire. But I’m just a gal with Irish skin who is trying to keep from getting crispy in this intense sun. Well, plus I don’t like the heat or the feeling of intense sun on my skin. Anyway, I understand about your relatives. I have similar ones. I’m glad you see that their issues are theirs and not yours. I know it doesn’t totally make it all go away or feel better, but every little bit helps. I’m so sorry about the way your dad died. That is just traumatic. Mine died suddenly, but he died in his sleep. He had a heart valve that needed replacing, but he didn’t tell my mom that the doctor told him that. He just didn’t want to go through that again. The best thing is, PCW, we know they are happy and in a better place. We can still talk to them. We just have to listen a bit harder to hear their replies. 🙂

      Thats us! The Perpetual Camping Vampires!! lol Only morning and night. During the day is just too hot. The way my skin is – I will burn at first, then a day or two later, it turns tan. However, i cannot breath in the heat. I feel like I am suffocating. It was really bad at the funeral home. They have all distanced themselves from me. Sad, but they are the ones who will have to answer for their bad behavior. Thank you. It is very traumatic for me. We have a small pond here at the campground and it is right by the playground. Son knows not to go anywhere near it. I saw him and the other kids by it one day and almost had a heart attack. I miss dad. He had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s and was having a difficult time with it. So I know he is pain free and doesnt need to worry about his health. I have dreamed of him several times. In one he begged and pleaded with me telling me that he did not tell his siblings what they said to me and that he was ashamed of how they treated me, etc. He loved to take fishing trips in his camper and our son spent the last time he was with him in it. It does my heart good to know that I am living in the one thing he loved to take out and do.

    At least you eventually tan! I burn and then freckle! 😛 Listen to your dad. My dad visited me about a half dozen times after he died. It’s the only way you’ll get the straight scoop and he’s trying to comfort you. That is a true blessing. 🙂

      It is a blessing and I do believe that his siblings made up the whole thing in order to steal away what should be mine!! Sorry POS the few of them are that did what they did. NOT all of them did it!
