Day 5 Austin, Texas

I think I have finally started to get into the swing of things after our first night was hell or so I thought. I was determined to cook our traditional Christmas Eve appetizers and have our dear friend Amanda over for drinks and entertaining. I always do this to myself…..why would I cook ONE thing, when I can cook 4 things to test out the new kitchen.

First lessons learned…
The kitchen sink is so small and not only do I have to do a dishes after every process, I also have to dry each dish and immediately put it away.

Because there is no counter space, I am constantly having to play musical surfaces with things to have enough room to prep.

None of the cookie sheets I had at the old house fit into our really small oven, so I got creative and used the top to my dutch oven to bake cookies, needless to say they were slightly
burnt.

Our tiny oven gets extremely hot, once I finally figured out how to light the damn pilot light!

After my third round of dishes, the sink faucet popped off and squirted water everywhere. That was a fun sight.

Things I love about the RV….
Before the RV, how much time did I spend running around the house looking for things? Now everything is in reach.

It is so much easier to keep the RV clean, can’t really be a slob because you may need a place to sit or sleep.

We met our neighbors, and after our horrible first night, they helped us laugh about what had happen the night before. David and Teri have been full timing for 8+ months. Glad we got
“stuck” by them. Their story is eerie identical to ours, minus the kiddo.

The RV means we are flexible. We can change the scenery anytime. And although we do have a planned move at the beginning of the yea to Pecan Grove, we really like this park and may come back.

The RV is quite cozy and always being in the same approximately to your loved ones. This might be a problem, but we will see.

Having to use the RV park restroom and shower facilities….is awesome. Other RVers might not agree, but as a mother of a 1 year old it is amazing. 15 minutes of uninterrupted time to
myself with out a baby crying….without Zoe peaking in and creeping on me in the shower, without her wanting to sit on my lap while I use the “chair.”

Next project is to get a video tour of the RV, so our family can see the inside our rig. It will happen soon, I promise.
