As I stated in a post a few days ago, hard to believe that July is almost over!
In talking with some parents, some Michigan kids will be heading back to school in less than a month. These kids go to private schools (such as a Lutheran school). Of course when you ask the kids if they are counting the days, the answer is NO, but they are all anxious to catch up with their friends. Can you even remember that feeling? Or going school clothes shopping? Making sure you had plenty of paper and # 2 pencils? Got your ruler? Protractor? Do they even use a protractor any more???
And with July almost over, that means Dan and I are that much closer to our new 'dream home on wheels'. We've got about 85 days prior to us leaving and heading for Georgia. If our 5th wheel hasn't sold by then, we will fill it up with our stuff, haul it down to GENERAL RV , trade it in on our new dream home, take all the stuff out of the "old" 5th wheel, put it in the NEW 5th wheel and away we will go! Otherwise, if we sell it out right between now and then, we will make a trip down there to pick up the new one, haul it back, fill it up and then head south. Plans are already made with the caretaker to take care while we are gone! Dan's already scheduling, in his mind anyway, when he's going to start cutting wood and splitting it (after Labor Day), we're figuring out what we will take this year that we didn't take last year and what we WON'T take this year that we DID take last year. We like to be organized!
For my camper readers, just some info for you for next camping season....1st thing is, we will still honor Passport America but it will only be for May, June and September. Same holiday restrictions and special event restrictions will apply. 2nd thing is that we have splurged and purchased a small ad with Trailer Life in order to become a Good Sam park. I'm not sure how much this will help us considering you first have to purchase an ad, then pay an additional $295.00 to become a Good Sam Park in order to offer Good Sam members a 10% discount. There are a LOT of Good Sam parks in lower Michigan, but I think only 3 or 4 in the U.P. Oh, and you also have to have a good rating with Trailer Life in order to become a Good Sam park. We always get a STAR beside our cleanliness rating which means a LOT to many campers.
My daughter ended up in the Battle Creek hospital last night. Her boyfriend had called earlier in the day to let me know she was really sick and had been throwing up about every 25 minutes (no fever). They were trying to get in touch with my sister (my daughter's Aunt) who is a nurse, so I KNEW it was bad if my daughter was that concerned. I guess it was about 10:30 last night when he called to tell me that they were at the hospital and she had an IV (dehydrated) and blood work as being done. I haven't heard anymore since then so I'm kind of a nervous Nellie this morning.
Well, I've got to get Dan around to run some errands this morning. Poor guy doesn't get a break!
