It’s been a great week! Last week I officially launched the blog, had a great evening out with Eric and discovered we may have an unwelcome visitor in the RV.
First to those who showed your support, thank you! It so nice to know that as we travel we will covered in prayer. And that many of you are interested in following our travels. One question many asked is, “where are we”? Currently, we are still living in the Austin area. Eric has one project that needs to finalize before we can start our adventure. So, we are still waiting for the details; hopefully soon. We are in a nice RV park that feels like being in the country, but still close to all the amenities, including my favorite craft stores. We were hoping to set out in March for Arizona, but we will keep you posted. If things are not all squared away with Eric’s project at work, we will probably go back to South Padre Island, since it is where the crazy idea began in the first place, and all of us enjoy going there.
Eric is so thoughtful! For Valentine’s Day, he bought me a lovely dress, shawl, and tickets to the Austin Ballet. About once per quarter our church offers “date night”, where the youth can earn money for summer camp and parents can enjoy an evening child free, with relatively inexpensive child care. We enjoyed a quiet evening that started with dinner at a Mediterranean restaurant with really tasty humus, then went to the ballet and ended with strawberry limeades from Sonic. I wish we would have taken pictures, but we were too busy enjoying each others company.
Unfortunately, around 4 o’clock in the morning, we were awakened to tapping and scratching sounds in the wall near our heads. It was very unsettling. We haven’t been able to identify for sure what was there; Eric has set 16 traps and nothing. I think we’ll be calling an exterminator. From what we have heard, this is not abnormal in RVs, but it is one of the more unpleasant of our RV experiences so far. We’ll keep you updated.
Despite being very exhausted due to the unidentified noise, I can still say it has been a good week.
