Weekend Catch-up: The camper is level!!

Weekend Catch-up: The camper is level!!

My husband is the MacGyver of the home. He is the Einstein of power tools and the Davinci of lumber.  Guess what he did?  He and that handy little girl of ours have built a ramp-platform thing to level the camper on.  We have been a bit frustrated these past couple weeks because of our uneven driveway.  The slope was so great that it would have been unsafe to use the slides and open her all the way up.  But now, thanks to this engineering marvel they have created, we can open her all the way up!  So check out the photo.  It’s made with 2x6s and was super heavy to place.  Backing the camper in place on top of it was much easier than expected.  This is by no means a great permanent solution, but for our temporary purposes, it works.  We can now pack up without squeezing through the bathroom to get into places.  I’m so stoked!

We have had quite a busy weekend all in all.  My daughter’s little dwarf hamster passed away.  There were many tears shed.  A memorial service was held, and we buried him in a potted plant so she could take him with us when we moved.  The whole thing was so very sad, but it was good for her to process through the sadness with tears and memories.

Other great things are happening though!  I had the privilege of attending the Air Force Ball on Saturday.  It was a wonderful time.  I loved seeing all the dresses and decorations.  There was also a silent auction and I won a signed poster print by local artist Marty Wilson.  I love the detail and the history on the poster.  It’s wonderful!  Since moving here to the Gulf Coast, I’ve started collecting signed event posters by local artists.  Usually these posters are some of the artist’s best works because there is a contest to be featured on the annual advertisement.  I also love that the themes are local, because they are advertisements.  I started with the Biloxi Seafood Festival posters I saw in my childhood.  The colors and movement on these posters really draw you in.

 

Finally, there’s something I’ve been wanting to share that I’m most proud of.  This cute hanging ornament my mom made me.  It was truly the very first thing to go into the RV.  My dad drew the pattern, then she sewed it up.  She is so stinking talented.

I’m so happy we have leveled the camper and can really dig into the packing business.
