Traveling Nomads

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!
