Forgive me blog, for I have sinned, it has been exactly 12 days since my last blog post.
It has taken me awhile to post this blog…because I was unsure what our next step would be. I felt defeated, deflated, disappointed and I was searching for our next “light at the end of the tunnel.”
Well we have found it! Here is a recap of our plans.
PLAN A: to take off April 1 and travel the country for a year. Derek work remotely and I stay at “home” take care of Zoe and be the family travel planner. The road map was to head West, drive up the coast of California all the way to Canada. Spend the summer in Whistler, Canada and than head back down to the states stopping in Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Tennessee Alabama and than spend the winter in Florida.
PLAN B: to move into the trailer full time and stay at an RV park in Austin. We would save up the money from not paying all that rent and travel one week of each month.This would open up places like Europe, Hawaii, Ireland…other places on our bucket list to visit. I would stay at home with Zoe which would give us more flexibility with vacation days. This was as good as it was going to get….or so we thought.
PLAN C: Fast forward one week later and Derek found out his management team approved 3 months of remote work vs. 1 year. Guess his boss had some fight in him and found a compromise for him. We will take whatever we can get at this point. I feel like we have been taking on a ride like a cheap whore with a Black Friday Sale. We are moving into the RV at the end of December (Dooms Day 12-21-12-End of the World, whatever you want to call it) The plan is to take off in the RV this summer as soon as the heat is unbearable in Texas. Head straight to Canada and than make our way back down the coast of California. Planned stops are Whistler, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, San Diego and somewhere in Arizona.
Game On…back to the To Do List, selling everything, finding an RV Park in Austin and moving into our RV FULL-TIME!
Back to our regularly scheduled program, happy blog.
