Today we froze a little outside at the zoo to bring a little wonder and excitement for our son. It posed a unique balance between fun and caution against the fact that we need to stay completely healthy for an entire month in preparation for a non life threatening issue that requires surgery for our 1 year old daughter (hello high germ infested public areas! 🤦🏼♀️). I don’t feel helplessly tosses by the wind in regards to our health. I know what I need to do in order to give us the best shot at staying healthy. But then there are other things that you can feel right in your gut. And those were the conversations we had while driving there today. Plans have changed and we are looking at doing much of the building process ourselves in order to move out to a raw piece of land we invested in several years ago. In order to do this we need to put some type of temporary dwelling like an RV out there so that we can spend as much time each evening after work working on it. The time has come to sell off and get rid of what doesn’t help us pursue that goal. Which means one of my favorite things has to go, our little short bus #skoolie. We kept it simple, with no plumbing, so we would be really roughing it if we tried to live in that while we built. 😰. It was so much fun for me to invest time, energy, and dreams in it. So I sit here now, finally warm after the zoo trip, with fun memories from the day. Hitting the go button on this post, signifying the fact that we are giving up one dream in order to pursue another dream. So if you or anyone you know wants a skoolie. We have one for sale. 😢. I’ll post pics in my story. And for those of you wondering, yes. We will get one again sometime after the dust settles from this build. Maybe I’ll be able to convince hubby to get a full sized one next time. 😉
Visiting friends in St. Augustine on my way to St. Petersburg. I can’t wait to get started back at work. I have so many tattoo designs that I am ready to put on skin. You can check out my work at @jasonsextontattoo to see what I have been doing, but what I am inspired to do is only slightly represented in my portfolio.
Today we ran errands, got a jig saw, some caulk and such... went to look for this hazard dome light for the roof with no luck. 😞
Narcisse is doing so amazing everyday. More and more he makes me proud and certainly reminds me why I have him when I start to think I don’t need him. He really is an incredible help.
George went in the bus with the shop vac & got the junk off the ground and tightened up an antifreeze line. Then, we scraped some junk off random areas and are praying the rain stops the next couple days so we can put down some rust converter! Woot! 🤩
This will be a BIG next step for us. If the rain stops it will also allow us the chance to get some butyl tape down on seams, caulk rivets and get the windows sealed up. 🙏 there’s so much to do. Trying to stay calm
