Be Careful What You Wish For

The owners of the Jayco trailer are meeting us at the RV dealer at 9 this morning. The dealer will give the trailer a through going over: pressurize all the tanks, run all the motors, look for leaks and such. There is an RV park on the dealer's lot. After checking out the trailer, the RV people will park the trailer in an RV spot, open all the slides and hook it up. G and I will sleep in it tonight.

If it passes all these tests, the owners will drive it out to the land tomorrow.

I could barely sleep last night. I felt like a kid on Christmas Eve. Not a fantasy kid in a book, but the real thing. I woke up about every half hour. "Will I get all I want? Will I like what I get? What if what I get is awful? Oh no! It will be so cool! But what if it's broken! I can't wait! Oh no oh no oh no. It's almost here! But, but, but..."

By this time next week, I'll know if I did the right thing.

A Glimpse Of The Future

Yesterday, Owl had a cook-out on the land for Moses and G. She made hot dogs on the grill and the boys rode their bikes. We chatted and walked around the upper meadow. The Chinaberry trees behind the good house were filled with a huge variety of of butterflies who refused to pose for a photograph no matter how long I stood still. There were cardinals in the trees. I had avocado and sliced chedder cheese on a hot dog bun with mustard, chili sauce and relish.

It was really nice.
