12’s become significant…
by Angie Quantrell @AngieQuantrell
Lately, I’ve been thinking in 12’s.
12 towels (the hubby uses many each week, plus there are the grands . . .)
12 dish clothes
12 sets of silverware (in case we have company)
12 wash clothes (we are messy)
I don’t know why 12 seems like such a good number. Except 12 towels will hold us if I can’t get to the laundry for a bit. Dishes shouldn’t be a problem, though we do go through them each day.
I am a 12th Fan (Go, Seahawks!). Maybe that’s the influence of 12.
A dozen. That usually means good things. A dozen eggs, donuts, months in a year . . .
Hmmm. 12’s were always the hardest for me to remember when it came to multiplication facts. I still have to think hard (or cheat) to figure out 12’s.
Moving into an RV trailer is a huge commitment. The storage space. Oh, boy. I mean the lack of storage space. That is the challenge. But we are up for adventure.
To end on a positive note, let’s have a list of 12 great and wonderful reasons to live in an RV!
1. Life will be one big adventure.
2. It will feel like camping. all. the. time.
3. We can move our house any time we want a change of scenery.
4. Less square footage means less area to clean!
5. Change. Change is good. Change makes you think outside of the box in which you currently reside.
6. Weeding. This is necessary to reduce personal effects to a sufficiently tiny amount that they fit inside the RV.
7. Cooking requirements will force creativity!
8. Potential for blog posts (the good, the bad, the ugly) will increase exponentially the longer we abide in each other’s hip pockets.
9. The porch. Sitting under the awning enjoying the evening quiet (and chatter of young grands) will be exquisite.
10. Free time! No sense in shopping – there’s no place to put it.
11. Clothing choices will be easy each day. With a limited wardrobe, it’s recycle outfits over and over again.
12. Fairy tale living. It’s true! I will be snuggled up to my honey in our home sweet home.
13. And for the baker’s dozen – Living in an RV will get us ready to live in our small home.
Now. That being said . . . I’d love to hear your RV living suggestions, tips, and strategies! Pretty please!
