And honestly, it looks a little different every day. Always changing, rearranging, and attempting to figure out more ways to store toys. I just took pictures and of the current state at 10:00 at night and nope...horrible..lol! We are packing and organizing things to move so that random stuff everyone has is all over the place! :) Yes even in a small space you still have it!
If you have been reading our blog you know we have had our share of issues with this 5th wheel. I have kept myself from painting and doing all the neat things I see on Pinterest because I think some people would like it with the wood original if we traded it in. I go back and forth almost daily. I would love to whitewash the cabinets, paint the walls, put in a backslash, wood floors, etc. Pinterest oh dear Pinterest why do you make me dream of anther RV remodel. HAHAHAHAH! Seriously you only dream about these things if you full-time rv! I think we FINALLY have the the living room leak fixed. It only took 6 years and over a dozen (at least) different RV repairmen and dealerships all over the country to figure it out! Now watch it leak...lol!
Ultimately I just wanted to share because so many people have asked about our lifestyle. I still can't believe we have been on the road this long and am so thankful for all the amazing experiences we have had. That doesn't mean every day is great because lets be honest, I obviously don't have a lot of cabinet space and when crackers fall out every.single.time I open the pantry I do get irritated. I don't like the shower but I have gotten used to it, the bathroom stinks just because rv bathrooms do, the refrigerator is small, my oven is tiny, and yes it is annoying that D and I have all of our clothes outside in our closet/cargo trailer, and that I can't dry my hair with the ac on....but I know this isn't forever (I think). I will look back on these years and know I will miss the closeness (because this lifestyle will either make or break a marriage and family) and the fact that my husband is asleep in the chair beside me and my soon to be 3 year old is tucked in his bed only feet away as I blog while listening to the intro of Jimmy Fallon. Years from now....I will miss this! :) I know I will and I know I will miss the simplicity. I know I will miss always seeing and experiencing new things. I know I will miss how we take full advantage of an area while we live in it. I fully get the fact that when you live somewhere it is very common to not visit/do all the fun things it has to offer. I know I will miss how creative I have to be with cooking because it gets so hot inside. I know I will miss how the dogs race to the door when D pulls up after work because they can hear his truck. I can not hear anything over the air conditioner! HA! I know I will miss meeting new people all the time with interesting stories and why they rv. I.know.I.will.miss.this lifestyle when it is over!
