After Storage....what do you do?

Well, we just put the MH and boats away into storage where they will hibernate for the winter. Now it's time to fill our schedule with other things to do until Spring. We ski, go to movies, watch WSU Football/Gonzaga basketball, play cards and the DW quilts. How do fill your time up until Spring?

I'll work on projects; motorhome or boat, since they are stored here inside. Nice weather days, we'll take a trike ride, or metal detect at the beach. No shortage of honey-do projects here, either.

We're in WA. We just get the rain coats out and keep on going, although with the DW's health problems it could get to be a problem if they can't figure it out.

Winter time is time to break out the snow machines, snow shoes, spend time at the local indoor range (where I am an RSO). Also spend time in the reloading room getting more ammo loaded. This is also time to look at this last summers trips and work out a plan for next summer. For me there is almost as much to do in the winter as the summer. The DW does not like the long cold days, but she puts up with them. She will be spending a fair amount of time doing tole painting projects and planning her winter break trips to Las Vegas and Idaho. She might even go to AZ.

We're going to become snowbirds this year/next. So we will start out driving
to TX and then see what we can get into... Maybe re-wax the MH or something... Try out the lawn chairs, read the last years magazines. Fix the trim pcs on the inside ceiling. Just be a putts, oyea maybe take up golfing.

'Tis the season for Dancing With The Stars, Survivor, America's Got Talent, The Apprentice, American Idol, The Amazing Race and new episodes of Criminal Minds, Shark Tank and Undercover Boss as well as a few other shows when nothing else good is on.

Whew... Not enough hours in a day on some days so we pre-tape the shows to spread them out.

Oh, and all the renovation work, maintenance and outside work that needs to happen around the farm has to happen over the winter now because we're spending so much dang time RV-ing lately. So busy in the daytime and being a couch potato in the evenings.

I think maybe we should just sell the farm so we have more time for TV and RV-ing.

Hmmm we full time so we are always RVing. As for what we do ..... Thom performs in plays and I either help out in the back or am stage manager, that's usually 2 1/2 months of not much else gets done. Going to bars for karaoke but we also take a bag full of card and dice games to play while there. Make jewelery, practice bass and guitar, learning Japanese with Instant Immersion ... I am sure I am forgetting something but we keep busy doing lots of things.

If you are headin' to the Gulf you wont have time for golf lessons your 1st year. a lot to see and do. Much fresh seafood and only so many days and dollars to try them all. Hope you enjoy being a Winter Texan.

It took me a while, but have finally arrived at a mental place where I am content just BEING, I no wish or desire to DO, anymore.

Reading the great books of the world is a wonderment within itself, and makes me realize how stupid I really am (actually, that should really read how stupid we all are)!

Our RV does not dominate our life so we just continue on. We travel seasonally in the winter then put it away for the summer. No place we would rather be than the Northwest during the summer. Backwards I know.

I have a wood shop,a dog, a big yard, and plenty of relatives needing something now and then, good friends a local coffee shop and a barber that calls me by name. Wife has a consulting business, and a sewing room and she is just finishing her Masters Degree. We have plenty to do.
