Of our life, and bus living

The Story of Us

the CAPTAIN and his Lady

"I just can't live like this any longer!" My husband and I looked at each other and then took a good look at our lives again...

​Where do we start?  How do we start?? We were tired of working to get by, and even then, just getting by... working hard to pay someone else's mortgage, aka rent...  We knew that was quite normal in this life, but I think we were just READY TO REBEL! :) Sometimes one has to hit bottom before he can start the climb up...

​​Thus began our 2017, and the biggest, and most outrageous change we have ever gotten ourselves into!

He was finally home, this day, after working long hours for a few days in a row. I had been looking forward to some attention!

I was happily chatting away to him, but he was distracted by some online game, (Risk), on his cell phone. Well, that irked me, for sure! (First...

Life is crazy busy! Sometimes, I am the energizer bunny and have multiple accomplishments by 9 A.M., but other times, I look at the clock and suddenly realize it is almost dinner time, and I turn around to wonder what I have actually completed.

I mean, life in an RV isn...

For almost a year now, we find ourselves parked on a lovely piece of acreage, which is parceled out to a number of other people hoping to live equally simple lifestyles.

Last summer’s episode with crazy-angry-axe-weilding-neighbour-man was scary, but other than yielding...

I can clearly remember my excitement when, at not quite 20 years old, I started my life as a married woman. Going straight from my parent’s home to being Fernand’s wife, I was thrilled with my new position, and threw myself into this role wholeheartedly! Besides anothe...

I was so in love with our baby, our first beautiful girl, and then I realized another was on the way! How could my heart, full with love already, have love to share with another? So, for this child I prayed.

I prayed that I would love this new addition. I prayed that sh...

I think we need to celebrate one another. To celebrate who the person is, what makes them who they are, and why they are special to us, what they have accomplished, what they have gone through and the strengths they have gained that makes them even more amazing...

My sweet, youngest granddaughter wants to get going!

At 10 months of age, crawling is simply not her thing, and scooting around on her bottom is okay only for a short time… If she can catch you, she grabs at your legs and makes her intentions known that she should be ho...

How can we preach about low cost living and not prove it in our lives?  Don't get me wrong - we absolutely LOVED our Caribbean cruise last January/ February!

So, maybe I should say that we try hard to find the most fun in everything we do, and free fun is THE BEST!

If there is one sorrow that I have been seeing so much of more recently, it is in broken relationships... I have written previously about minimizing and hopefully not in the relationship area... But what has touched my heart in a tearing and terribly sad way, is seeing...

The invitation was so very gracious, and I immediately said yes! Of course I wanted to be a part of this momentous event! Because that is exactly what it was - our daughter's mother-in-law ("D") wanted to share a family heirloom with her "daughter" and me! 

- A family h...
