RV Life – Week Two {Debt-Free Journey}

We finished! We’re officially done with our last rental house. It took us one whole extra week to be done and get it cleaned out. I told you it was hard work downsizing in one month! πŸ˜‰

We are fully in our RV and we are still surrounded by stuff. It amazes me how much stuff we still own. By the world’s standards, it’s very, very little. By our standards, it’s far too much. There will be more culling happening for the next few weeks, I’m sure.

Jackson is loving his sleeping arrangement – right between Mom and Dad. The little stinker is growing too fast. Before we know it, we’ll be pulling the dinette down into a bed for him.

Another fun update – Jackson’s moved onto baby food already. He wasn’t sleeping too well for several nights in a row. He’d wake up crying, inconsolable. We’d burp him, but he’d be right back to crying. Something a lady had told me a few weeks back came to mind. She had told her daughter to feed her baby some real food when she’d started crying in the night. It turns out her 8 month old was hungry and breast milk wasn’t enough. Our “little” Jackson had the same issue! (He’s four months old and weighs 18 pounds. He looks more like a 10 month old.) Anyway, I fed Jackson a banana, some applesauce and some oatmeal yesterday. He slept almost all night!

Both girls are loving their new school. They’re loving their teachers and all the new friend they’re making. We found the public library a couple of days ago and have made good use of it! In fact, they’re currently having a massive stuffed animal battle with some new friends. My mama heart is full. They’re taking the move well.

Anthony is happy to have a new neighborhood and new sights. He still has a commute, but it’s different. I guess that’s all that matters.

On Friday, I was able to connect with a local woman’s Bible study group. It was awesome! I praised God for their willingness to live out Matthew 25:35. (Look it up and live it out) πŸ™‚

We’ve had a few challenges, such as an elusive massive spider – (I have no idea where he is!), and too much stuff in a small space, but we’re immensely blessed. God is with us when we’re weary, when we’re afraid, when we’re uncertain and when we’re bone tired. He’s never left us and He never will.

How has your week been? How has God blessed you?
