Thoughts & Musings, Woman Rising

Healing, forward…

It's been a year since I started a self-therapy journey after a bad experience with a therapist, the lack of another in town to take their place, and the struggle to find a therapist in my insurance list within 75 miles of my house. I knew, however, that I needed something to help me get… Continue reading Healing, forward…

Decisions…

Double, full rainbow. Too long, don't want to read: I'm leaving Oregon and heading east. I've been thinking a lot about what ReWilding Me means to me (this is a group on Facebook that I started a while ago) and some of it is letting go of the societal expectations. Especially the ones that don't… Continue reading Decisions…

Miscellaneous, Thoughts & Musings

Changes

As most of you know, I've planted my Nest in Sandusky again. As some of you know, it was to help my son cope with some of the issues that surround his combat PTSD. In some ways he is a lot better (he doesn't sleep with loaded weapons anymore, but that's because we took them… Continue reading Changes

Not yet settled

I have arrived in Ohio! The drive on Monday was a little unnerving since there were a few strong gusts and lots of blowing snow, but it's over now. Serephina and Khaleesi handled the trip well enough, but Ofelia... well, she didn't do so well. She ended up wetting my bed at one point and… Continue reading Not yet settled

Flexibility

I made it through the brutal cold! Sure, single digits aren't normally considered brutal to most people, but when you're huddled in a 28' x 8' space, it certainly is. Even so, with the extra blankets on the windows & door and cab area, with the propane heater running a couple times throughout the night,… Continue reading Flexibility

Cold and colder…

As you know, there are some record low temperatures already happening all over the country and even lower ones projected for the beginning of 2018. I'll admit that, even with all of my preparations, I'm still a little nervous about it. After all, this is a 30 year old motorhome that wasn't meant for winter… Continue reading Cold and colder…

Thoughts & Musings

Brakes and Breaks

Today the rain is pounding on the roof and creating quite a racket in here. Of course, with every different sound I feel the need to check for leaks in the roof, even though it's covered with the rubber roofing sealant. Other than that, I'm trying to remain relaxed through it all. The cats are… Continue reading Brakes and Breaks

Making my way…

My last week in Ohio was a mostly peaceful one. I discovered that the local transit system will actually come out to the campground to get you, take you to run your errands, then bring you back to your site. My errands in McConnelsville cost a total of $2.50. If you're ever in the AED… Continue reading Making my way…

The little things…

A couple years ago, I was mentioning how I knew that this wouldn't be all sunshine & sparkles. I was trying to be realistic about how not-easy it would be to live in a tiny space and deal with traveling every couple weeks. I knew that it wouldn't be a piece of cake, especially since… Continue reading The little things…

Planning & Preparations

Where did the time go?

As I struggle to keep my eyes open tonight I remind myself that I've made a lot of progress. I have all the surfaces painted, the roof is sealed and the a/c shroud is back in place, the generator is gone, and someone is coming to get the propane tank this weekend. Packing up my… Continue reading Where did the time go?
