Hello World 🌻 Happy Day My Friends 🤗💖🤗
Video story instead of a poem cause my head is all over the place 😮. ⬇️⬇️⬇️
Sooooooooo… It always makes me laugh when people say that I’m so strong for doing this cause it truly has nothing to do with how I feel inside… My strength is what makes me do it and walk through the fear but it doesn’t take away the fact that I’m a freaking basketcase and truly feel like I want to puke…🤮🤢🤮..It’s been 10 long months since I brought the bus home and started working on it and the fact that it’s all done and I’m hitting the road in 3 days truly makes me feel like I wanna puke hahaha… My emotions are all over the place, I can’t eat, my stomach is in knots and I truly wanna scream… 😮🤯😯…Sooooooooo… The next few days I’ll just be making sure I’ve got all my ducks in a row and doing my best to breathe 🙄😏🙄 but I wanted to say thank you to all of you that have stuck by me through this crazy journey of building the bus, my tears, my laughs, my everything…
Thank you so very much…I am truly grateful and love you all dearly! 💖🙏..
Let the countdown begin!! 3 days AHHHH 🤯

There’s So Much You Can Do
Hello World & Happy Day My Friends 🌻💖🌻..
There’s only 3 major things left to do in the bus..
1.Get it tuned up..
2. Finish installing the solar
3. Get the tires installed…
My mechanic who comes to me to do the work on the bus has been crazy busy and because he knew I wasn’t leaving till June 10th his coming to finish the tune up wasn’t really on my mind and then BAM 💥 😯😯😯…
I was in the midst of organizing the bus (a never ending task lol) putting things where I wanted them so I remember where they are lol, packing away winter clothes etc when my phone rang and it was my mechanic 😯 he was on his way to finish tuning up the bus 😯…
At first I was excited and then I got highly emotional and started crying… It hit me…😯
My new life is truly about to begin…😯
The biggest part of my leaving was getting a tune-up and OMG it’s done…😯
So many emotions went though my mind and still are yet it made me think about the day I brought the bus home, what it looked like inside and out and what it looks like today and there’s so much for me to be proud of 😁.
My point in all this is:
Don’t ever downsize your abilities, don’t doubt what you can do.. all your dreams can happen, when you believe in YOU!!!🤗💖🤗
OMG IT’S HAPPENING!
35 days and counting!!!
They Are What Matters Most
Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 🤗😀
Ok so yesterday I received a couple things I ordered on Amazon for the bus and talk about funny….
When I went up to the office to pick them up.. I was dancing around like a little kid and the manager asked me what I got that was making me so happy and silly dancing around like a little kid 🤗💖🤗
At first I wasn’t going to show her and then decided why not and opened the big box in front of her…
Well I guess it was a good thing cause she started laughing so hard that she was literally crying which of course made me laugh really hard and then another lady came in… She asked why we were laughing so hard.. We told her and of course she lost it too..
I looked at both of them after we calmed down a bit and said….
“You know you’re a tad touched when you receive a order you placed, you’re dancing around like a kid in a candy store and it’s a toilet!”🚽💃see pics ⬇️
Of course I was happy to receive my USA sticker for the back of the bus too but the toilet is a game changer 😂😂
Now for most people that’s not anything major 🤔 but for me OMG… It’s HUGE…
Imagine boondocking in the middle of nowhere with no bathroom..😫
Being that I am much older than most van lifers lol… Those middle of the night potty breaks…🙄
It would not be too fun going outside behind a bush in the middle of nowhere, in the dark at 3am 🤣😂 my luck I’d forget toilet paper and grab a poisen ivy leaf 😫😂
So my friends…
Don’t forget the little things that always make you smile… Cause it’s always the little things that make life worthwhile 🚽💃😂🤪😂💃🚽..
Have a wonderful day world 💖
Get You Where You Need To Be
Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 🤗💖
When I first got the bus I was all determined to get it totally converted in a month or two max… Haha haha well we know that didn’t happen cause 7 months later and I’m still doing things to it 🤔🙄
Not that it’s a bad thing at all cause I’m actually glad that I’m taking my time so that hopefully there won’t be too many changes needed once I hit the road… 😉
I’ve been making jewelry and working with polymer clay for a long time and I’m one that needs to know where everything is and very organized when it comes to all my crafty”stuff” and storing tools and supplies in see-through stackable shoe boxes always helped in that manner… 😉😀😉
Well knowing that I wanted to bring that “stuff” with me in the bus so I have things to do on my down days.. I was going bonkers trying to figure out how to stack them in a place that was easily accessible so I didn’t hurt my back trying to get to them and in a way that they wouldn’t fall all over the place while I drive 🤔🤔🤔
I tried so many things and was getting so frustrated and truly felt defeated..so I put it on the back burner for a while and this weekend it was like a light blub went off in my head…
I have all this room under my bed since I moved the fridge and two ways to access stuff under there…
So I built a bookshelf and woo hoo perfect solution lol… See pics ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
My point in all this is that we get so wrapped up in the big picture and looking at the end result that we can lose our motivation and feel defeated… Sometimes all we need to do is step back, take a break and the answers will come… 😉😀😉..
Go figure huh…
Have a great night world 💖
Hello World & Happy Day My Friends 🤗🤗
It’s kinda ironic when there’s something that you really want to do yet fear of doing it creeps in and you either keep putting it off or you wind up not doing it at all 😩🤔..
I’ve always been a perfectionist be when it comes to doing stuff and always do a ton of research prior to doing anything I’ve never done before as well as asking people that have done it so I’m doing it correctly which I do believe is a good thing 😁😁😁… And I’ve been really excited about setting the solar up on the bus for a long time and over a month ago I ordered everything I need to do it yet because I’m not an expert when it comes to solar I keep putting it off rather than just doing it…😩🤔😩…
It’s not like it takes a rocket scientist to do it, it’s pretty self explanatory yet I’ve allowed the fear of not ever doing it before get the best of me 😩😩😩 go figure huh?!?!?…🙄🙄🙄 So I decided today that I’m hooking the solar up no matter what.. After all I won’t know if it works if I don’t 🙄
My point in all this is… When there’s something that you really really want to do… Don’t let the fear of never doing it before stop you… Cause if you do you’ll never do it… We are so much stronger than we give ourselves credit for and fear is just a feeling that we can always push past when we put our minds to it… It’s just a matter of doing it 😁😁…So don’t let fear stop you or let it get in your way..Tell the fear to kiss your butt and do it anyway.. Cause fear is just a feeling and feelings come and go..Push past the fear itself.. your stronger than you know 😁
Happy day world 💗
Don’t Forget Your Happy Pill
Hello World & Happy Day My Friends
This past week has been pretty hectic for me, not to mention my cell phone is going bonkers (I really need a new one)
My Instagram is following and unfollowing all kinds of people, every poem I’ve written in the past few days has disappeared into the abyss and my blog keeps telling me I am putting in the wrong password… 😠😩😤
Now I don’t know if it’s me or if it’s the universe telling me too take a chill pill, yet whatever it is I’m going to go outside and spend the day with a friend..
I’m not going to work on the bus (we’ll see how long that lasts hahaha) I’m not gonna write in my blog (after this post for the weekend) and I’m not going to worry about my stupid phone or the internet today.
I’m actually going to take my own advice 😱 go figure huh lol
So my friends….
Whatever this week has put you through, let it go…
Today is a new day…
Grab a friend, go outside or take some time and just chill… Whatever you decide to do.. don’t forget your happy pill 😀🤗😀
Have a beautiful day world 💗🤗💗
