Full Time versus Half Time

Fulltime RVing?? Sounds good to me tonight--no lawn, no garage to build!! But on the other hand, I sat outside today and just looked around in awe at our landscape. We are finally starting to have leaves on our apsen trees--it is the 19th of May! Our little creek is running merrily and the mountains are still covered with snowpack. So, maybe for the time being, we will continue to half time!
I mowed the grass for the first time this year, did a little weed whacking and spent some time using the weed sprayer.
Since we retired last year, we have become a lot more frugal than we ever used to be. When both of us were working, Michael as a construction company owner and me as a health care consultant, money was always available. With retirement, our income has decreased but so have our spending habits and we are getting along very nicely. Since marrying Michael, my spending habits have changed for the better, too. I was one of those people who spent every last dollar and then some, thought nothing of having credit card debt, other debt and I loved new cars. Michael has taught me in our fourteen years together that it is absolutely the best feeling to be debt free--I sleep at night! I stop and thank Michael sometimes for the peacefulness he has brought me.
Mom headed off for her summer job yesterday after spending 10 days with us. I hated to see her go, I just don't get to spend enough time with her and I miss her.
All in all, it was a good Monday!
