The wind is starting up tonight. Every time it is windy and the RV starts shaking it reminds me that I want to get out of this RV soon. After work I go hang out with the dogs in the mobile home and I look around and try to picture it fixed up. Last night I found some white cardboard and nailed them to the ceiling to cover the holes where the water leak used to be. I ran out of cardboard so I used a white trash bag and duct tape for the last hole. I know, I know, the people at work like to tease me and call me a redneck and trailer trash. I don't care. It's not a permanent fix, I'm just trying to get a sense of how it would look if I put some time and money in to it. Not too much money. Just enough to make it comfortable.
Tonight I painted over the red wall where I had painted flames on the motorcycle tank for a friend. Then I hung a picture over a hole in the wall. I didn't take a picture because it doesn't look very good. I would put new panelling up if I was really going to fix it up. I think I will try to do one think to make it look nicer every night.
Tomorrow I should sort out my kitchen stuff and make a pile for the thrift store. Do I really need 2 microwaves? I never use any of that stuff because I have a whole other set of kitchen stuff in the RV. I still find it hard to get rid of things. There's the cast iron pan that my renters put in the dish washer (it rusted but I will fix it some day...), there's the marble cutting board left behind by the other tenants, there's my blender that I don't use because I don't have room for it in the RV (but I would use it in the mobile home! Mmm milkshakes), there's the dish set for 8 (am I ever going to have 8 people crammed in there? I don't think so), there's the back-up waffle maker (do I really need a back-up?), there are at least 2 dozen glass glasses (they are pretty but I use plastic for every day use). It's time to make some decisions and finally let some of these things move on to better homes where they will actually get used.
