Wyoming has been very cold. Being new RVer's we have had to learn a lot in a very short time. I really miss my home but it is what it is. Hey, I even found a local store that sells like 10 different comic books, very cool, especially that one of them is 'Wolverine'.
...Because as we went to buy an RV, one of my cats ran out of the jeep underneath the sellers mobile home. It was snowy, cold, and wet. My sweet husband crawled underneath in the cold yucky mud from front of the home to back of the home to get my cat. I will never question that my husband loves me again, also because he hates that cat, that showed true love.
I think we at our basic root are nomadic. I love to travel everywhere, to see new, to learn new, to adapt, etc. After a few years somewhere I feel the need to make a transfer. I think Dave is the same, and his family moved a bit as well. How could I ever expand myself if I did the same thing, never learned how the person in the other pair of shoes lived? Today Dave bought a homeless man lunch and I felt blessed to help someone else. How many times has someone helped us in our time of need, when we were down on our luck, it felt good to pass it on. I'm just amazed that people just stand by and do nothing. Anyway were traveling, Dave's working (thank goodness), sick of motels, can't wait to buy our RV and live. We're still going to fix up the house and live in it part-time. This whole journey is out of my comfort zone which is good to help me grow and expand but the stretching part can hurt and be uncomfortable.

The Twilight books are so great! I loved them, going to read them again. Stephen King said he didn't like the books but who cares, it's just his opinion. I'm a big fan of Stephen King, but that doesn't change how I feel about Twilight.
Dave came home for a few days, a few days ago, and it was really wonderful! I took for granted even how nice it is to sleep next to him. I cried for the 8 days he was gone, but after 3 days home, and now he's back to work, I feel stronger. I haven't cried and sobbed, and I realize that I can do things on my own, not physically, I'm strong as hell, but mentally. Dave has always been such a support to me and now that I don't have that like I did I've become a stronger person. I think it's good after 12 1/2 years of marriage to still miss each other. The kids are doing great, they just go with the flow, I have so much to learn from them. Again, it's nice to get a paycheck. The snow is melting, that's so great!
I miss Dave so bad, my heart is breaking, ripping apart. He's been gone six days and I don't know when we'll see him. We need to find a place to live, Dave's going to church tomorrow in WY and see if anyone can help find a place. Everywhere we go we always hear to ask people at church if they know who wants to rent out. I have to have faith it will be ok, that I can get through this. My dad fell off his trailer the other day, an ambulance got him and had to get 20 stitches in his head, I guess he fell really hard and pretty bad. I'm so worried that dad is going to pass away soon, he's so different since Robert passed, he looks so bad. If my dad goes, my mom will soon after. I hope this is a better year. BTW, Dave's new job is going great, he loves it, and half the crew are women, cool.
Dave got a new job driving trains in Wyoming. He'll be gone for a couple of weeks, it will be difficult. Dave is my best friend and the love of my life!!! We'll all move to WY, but keep our home in CO, we want to retire in this home, plus we got it cheap. It will be nice to have a paycheck again and not feel like we're starving. No money = major stress! Things will be better now, and being in WY will be an adventure.
This past year my brother learned he had cancer, stopped being able to walk and later died at 29 years old. My parents are very sick and now even worse. Dave lost his job and then got blackballed from being hired because he didn't get along with the boss' cousin, it's a good 'ol boy club here. We haven't been able to fix our fixer-upper house, and had to be on food stamps. We've also been told that we are thieves because we've had food stamps and people who pay taxes don't want to see their money go to 'people like us'. You know some people aren't lazy on welfare they really do need help. As far as I'm concerned 2008 can go to hell!
