What am I doing here??

Sunday December 4, 2011


Every morning I get up and read the updates on my fulltime blogging friends.  It’s always so great to see where they are and what they are doing.  Today I’m reading they are in Florida and Texas and Arizona and I’m wondering


It was 29 degrees when I got up.  Going up to 60 supposedly but that’s the highest it gets in the next 10 days.

Right now it’s 46 at nearly noon.

But look at the temps where all my friends are

Mission Texas  76° and it’s only 10am

Naples Florida where it’s 77°

EVEN Murrells Inlet S.C. (where they are kayaking without me) 65°

Well enough of this, it’s just a pity party.
But I’m going to think long and hard about the plan to
do all the doctor and dental etc things in Virginia
in December in order to be here for the holidays.

REALLY ready to be back on the road.


  1. Soon, Sherry, soon!
    I'm sure you'll be happy to be there for Christmas. Then, get the heck outta Dodge!!!

  2. Maybe you want to come along with us to we SD? It has a high of 32 and love of 11 degrees...

    This should be interesting, maybe we need to tow a propane truck as a toad?

  3. We weren't sure how we would like the Rio Grande Valley of TX, but this is the warmest winter so far in our three years of fulltiming. We're loving it! Miss the desert southwest but it is so much colder there.
    I would be rethinking things, too, if I were you.

  4. We had a kayaking adventure this afternoon and the weather was great! Wish you guys were here at Huntington Beach SP!

  5. Yes Sherry, we had a great kayak trip and we did miss the two of you ;o)) Will get some pictures up ASAP.

    Just relax and enjoy the down time. Both of you get yourselves all fixed up with the Drs and Dentists so you are all ready for some fun to come. How many days??? Oh, but who's counting ;o)) Just remember, you could be working ;o(((

  6. Yep, mighty nice down here in Naples...but you've got kayaks and I don't! :-) I should have rented one of your kayaks and we coulda hooked up here in Florida and gotten it back to you! Won't be long and you'll be heading south! Hang in there!

  7. Less than a month, right?! :) YAY!

  8. Roamin stayed home instead of joining us on the paddle. I guess he was thinking of you two. We thought about y'all while we enjoyed the water.

  9. If it makes you feel any better,our great weather is coming to an end for awhile. We are going from lows in the 60's down to 34 tonight and highs barely into the 50's for the next five days or so.


Your comments are the best part of this blog for me.
