Back To The House and A Plan For This Summer

DeBary, FL.
Highbanks Marina and CG.

75 deg. clear, S. wind @ 8 mph.
Forecast = Partial cloudiness early, with scattered showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon. High 93F. Winds S at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 50%.

It's been great, staying here in the travel trailer at Highbanks. Kind of like a mini-vacation, but today we'll be heading back to the house. You see, Thursday, Linda has her Chemo treatment and also, Joe will be flying in from Virginia Beach. We could manage staying here in the trailer but Joe will have luggage and he'll probably need to be doing some "work" on his computer, so it will be better to stay at the house.

For those of you that are new to this blog or others who have a memory like mine, Joe is Linda and Jim's son who lives in Virginia Beach with his wife, Nancy and their 2 girls, Sami and Amber. Joe flew down here right after Linda's surgery, but we haven't seen him since.

So this morning, Jim and Linda will be packing up a bunch of stuff and we'll head to the house. On the way, we'll stop by Walgreen's to pick up a couple of Linda's prescriptions that they took over there yesterday. Once we get home, I'm sure there'll be things to do before Joe gets here and I'll just bet they'll need to buy some groceries.

So far, the travel trailer has preformed very well. There are a few things that could have been done differently, but that's to be expected. If there's one thing that we've learned throughout the years is that there "ain't no 10's" where RVs are concerned. Every one of them has their little quirks and design problems. So far, this trailer doesn't seem to have any large problems and it should work very nicely for it's intended purpose.

Oh!! Just one more thing.

Yesterday, Jim and Linda were talking about the rest of this summer and I think that they've pretty much decided that they want to leave the trailer here at the campground so that we can come here for more "mini vacations" while Linda has the rest of her treatments. It'll cost more than putting the trailer in the storage lot, but not any more than if we were traveling with it, like we normally would during the summer months.

I think it's a good plan. I get bored just sitting in the house all the time.
