Merry Christmas & We're In Carson City!!!

Christmas Cards-Box of 12- Santa's Jolly
Hey Ya'll,

First of all, I wanted to say that I hope everyone is having the best Christmas ever!!  Due to our circumstances, I forgot it was Christmas after I woke up today!!  We worked frantically from the time Walt and Mark returned from Mesa with the RV, to get it loaded up so we could get to Carson City this week while we had a break in the weather!  We had planned on driving up to Carson City on Thursday, as that was to be the first day of clear weather.  But we weren't finished loading it up, so we decided to continue loading it up and wait until yesterday morning to leave.

So we drove up on Christmas Eve and it turned out to be a great day to do it.  The road was totally dry, the traffic was light and we made it with no problems at all, thank god!  So we arrived about 11:30 am and set up the RV to where we could at least walk around in it, and had the bed made up, etc.  Then we drove to Walt's moms house where she had made us a really nice Christmas Eve Turkey dinner!  The only problem with going to her house is her DOG.....this dog hates just about everyone but her, and bites everyone she can!!  She is also a major barker, which is very disrupting and everyone but my MIL hates this dog!  But eventually my MIL got the dog under control and caged, and the rest of the evening was really nice.

So we spent our first night in our new RV "home" last night.  Other than the bed being hard as a rock, and hard to walk around to the far side of the bed, which is my side of the bed, of course!  It was ok.  But we didn't go to bed until after midnight, and both had trouble going to sleep at first.  We also decided that we need to purchase some space heaters, to cut the use of Propane for heating, which is very expensive.  Oh, and we found out that my 40" LCD TV is too big for us to be able to use!!  Darn!

So today, we have been unpacking the stuff that we had packed into the RV.  Shortly we will have to start going through the stuff in the Storage unit, to decide what we want to keep, but keep it in Storage, or use it in the RV now, or get rid of it!!

I am attaching a couple photos of our RV sitting in front of the house before we drove off.  Tonight we are going to the Fandango Casino down the road from us, and having Christmas Dinner there in the Buffet.  Then on Wednesday, I am scheduled for my "FILL"!!!!  Then we will see how bad I was for the last 2 months!

Again, I hope that everyone had a great Christmas today!!  Love to all, and Mele Kalikimaka to all!!

Aloha My Friends  :)
