Another cloudy cold & rainy morning. I think this Spring will have to go down on record as the worst Spring of ever!! I had sat up late Sunday night & watched the President’s announcement about the death of Osama Bin Laden so this morning I watched CNN for further details. I still have a little bit of 'News Hound' left in me.
The rain quit around 9 & I headed off to Goderich for some groceries. Returning home I was spurred into a cleaning mode when the sun finally broke through the heavy cloud cover. We have been home over a month now but other than unloading the Motor Home we hadn’t done any real cleaning yet. Yard work took priority & cold weather rainy weather was the other excuse for not getting at all the cleaning.
Spent a lot of time vacuuming & cleaning the kitchen area including the fridge & stove. The Southwest is a very dusty place & when your boondocking most of the time in sand, clay & gravel it doesn’t take long for things to get dirty. Especially when we had 12 furry paws going in & out continuously every day.
By the time I finished cleaning this afternoon the rig was starting to look kinda civilized again. I vacuumed up enough dog fur out of the carpet to probably put together another dog. I went over the carpets 3 separate times & it occurred to me while vacuuming that now we could probably take the majority of that carpet out of there & put in a wood or tile floor which would be far easier to keep clean. Couldn’t do that before because Max always had trouble walking on flat slippery surfaces.
I found it sad at times today in the rig as I remembered all the great RVing times we had with the 2 big doggy guys over the last bunch of years. However, I couldn’t let myself dwell on the memories because they brought tears to my eyes so I kept myself focused on the cleaning at hand.
WHEN'S MOM COMING HOME DAD??
I started on the passenger side bins as well, first vacuuming out the dust & sand & then hosing them down & then wiping them dry. Now, if we could just reload the rig right away & hit the road again I would…………..ok, better not go there:((
Kelly’s Mother is getting around a bit with a walker but she has not been faring well with all the pain meds. A series of unfavorable reactions to the meds has kept Kelly very busy. Her Mother’s appetite is gone as well. Hopefully things will begin to improve soon.
Looks like another cold rainy day tomorrow so I will try to keep myself in a positive mood & continue with the Motor Home clean-up. Also intend on getting down to see my Uncle Harry in Mitchell over the next few days as well.
