What A Faker

Do you ever wonder how intelligent dogs are? Sure you can train them, but repetition and consistency can train fish.  -No joke-  But do they scheme? Plot? Pre-meditate?  After what I witnessed last night, I would say: “uh yup”.   If you have read my other blogs, you might have read where we have recently re-introduced…

Skating Rink or RV?

Skating at the Skating Rink or Skating in the RV?  Well, my kids choose both!  We are temporarily residing in our 36 foot RV.  We sold our home a year ago – yes I said a year ago; it was supposed to be 3 months.  Anyway, that topic is for another post.  This past Christmas,…

Chocolate Kind of Day

It was a chocolate type of day – you know?…the kind that melts all smooth and creamy like.  My children are making my eyes bulge from my head and on top of that, I have cabin fever!  Have you ever had one of those days?  <Sunshine where are you?>  We had a massive cold-front come…

Introducing Tysen David Fritz

Tysen David Fritz is my “little bull” in the china shop. He is the reason that we use the phrase, “hands in pockets”. Have you ever seen Madagascar, the movie? There is a penguin named Private who has to push any and all buttons and he gets himself and everyone else into a lot of trouble…

What Chemotherapy Is Like #1-6

I was the “Side Effect Queen”, because even my side effects had side effects; I mean if there was an effect to be had… I would have it. Simply put, chemotherapy in itself is a series of intravenous infusions of single or multiple types of poison meant to kill cancer cells, problem is, it kills…

Doggy Doors … Or Fort?

Space is limited and precious in an RV, especially when there are 2 adults, 2 kids, two dogs and two cats…yes, I know we are crazy…but we are not getting rid of our animals just because we move – they are part of our family.  However, our original plan of my parents kitty sitting for…

Bringing Home The Kitties

Getting Our Kitties Back Mixed With A Little Vacation My parents had graciously taken in our 2 kitties while we were in transition between selling our home and moving into our 36 foot RV – what we thought was going to be a quick relocation. When the original three month estimate turned into just over…

Introducing Ayden Timothy Fritz

Ayden Timothy Fritz is a very deep personality. More so then I would ever expect from a 10 year old boy.  He is very quick to catch on and he understands feelings exceptionally well and even though he is 10, he is pure and innocent. The way kids should be.  He has guy buddies and girl buddies. Zero drama. (There…

They Ate My Pie

Just under 3 minutes was as long as it took for them to eat my pie.  It arrived to the table.  Pecan pie unlike I’ve ever eaten before.  Supposedly, the boys weren’t interested.  Piranhas, both of them; attacking relentlessly with a vengeance, not even the decorative swirls on the plate left over. As I engaged…

What Chemotherapy Is Like #7-12

Welcome back!  If you haven’t seen #1-6, check that blog out.  If I can help just one person with this information, I will consider this a success! #7. Pain: chemotherapy is a poison therapy intended to KILL cells and it does. You can die from chemotherapy…they will never admit that but, after all, it is…

Everything’s Bigger In Texas

Extreme weather in a house is scary business because houses in Texas don’t usually have basements. They are very costly to put in and maintain an underground shelter in Texas, because we have clay.  Clay shifts and contracts in the cold and expands in heat; causing foundations to crack.    Extreme weather in an RV is…

All I Wanted Was A Coke – Santa Barbara, California – You Really Disappointed Me

Our journey was underway.  We were on our way to SUNNY Santa Barbara California! I couldn’t believe it!  Sand, surf and sunshine; the three “S’s” were about to be mine… I mean ours, of course.  California coast is my most favorite place in the world; there is nothing more calming then staring into the ocean…

8 Pound Powerhouse RV Washer

One of the biggest expenses being a full time RV-er, is how much you will spend in a Laundromat. Laundromats, at first glance are a Godsend, because they have huge machines that hold huge loads. We are saving money right?!? Not so much, weekly costs incurred from renting a washer range from $2.5- 10.00 per…

Leaving Texas For Good… Sigh

Watching the sun set on Texas is very bittersweet because it is what I know.  Texas itself provides a different kind of life unlike anywhere else. The first moment when the scenery changed into lush green hues covered by sprawling trees and scattered flowers, it was as if I had entered a world all its…
