Cause I’m a problem solver…

TTH_Thoughts__Gratitudes_1_300x300

This whole thing with the RV has had me nervous.  Yes, we’ve been making the payments and we’ve now filed our taxes, but we were still unsure about a lot of things, like how the hell we were going to get it moved from where it is to where we are so that we can do the work we need to do to it.

The search for a truck big enough to haul the camper within our price range has not gone so great.  I’ve been worried about gas mileage in a truck as well since it’s already costing me an arm and a leg to get Draco back and forth to work in my car.  I’ve also been concerned about the safety of having Wee Witch’s car-seat in a truck.  Would our insurance go up?  Do we even have to cover it?  All that and more.

I’ve managed to find solutions to most of the questions this morning, and I’m thankful that it seems like everything is working out well.

I found out that our local Home Depot rents trucks, so I will simply rent a truck from them to move the camper when I need to move it.  That means that I can find a car, which will be cheaper, better on gas and will have a true backseat for the car-seat.

Although I will need to register and tag it through the DMV, I won’t have to have separate coverage on it on my

insurance because my liability insurance should extend to cover the camper when we’re moving it.  All of this is great news to me.

Also, this past weekend was Tiger’s birthday party and we went down the day before and spent the night.  While we were there, conversation eventually turned to the camper and our plans for that.  We got to talking about me wanting to learn to can and all of that.  Tiger, apparently, has canned before and knows at least SOME of what she’s doing and said that she wants to start doing it again, too and suggested I come to her house to do my canning and we’ll do it together!  That means I may have to transport stuff back and forth to her house when we’re doing it, but I won’t have worry about how to set it up in my limited space in the RV!

I guess this is what the Goddess means for us to do.  Every time I think there is a road block we can’t get around with it, a solution presents itself to whatever the problem is (so far anyway).

The tax check should be here by the end of the week, so by next weekend, I should have the RV sitting in the back yard with us living in it while we get it ready to go to the park.

Also, I made arrangements last night for 2 mopeds.  One belongs to Chicklet, who has been trying to figure out how to buy my car from me when we get ready to buy something else, so I made arrangements last night for her to use her moped as a down payment.  Then A brought home an E-Bicycle, which is basically an electric moped, and we’re

going to buy it from him until we can find a decent gas-powered one.  That will give us 3 vehicles.  A car for shopping and spending time with the grand-baby and a moped each for day to day stuff, which will save us on gas but

keep us from feeling trapped at home all the time.

It looks like this is really going to happen (although I’m a little worried about the weather at the moment and how that’s going to effect us getting the camper over here…they say a major winter storm is supposed to hit us tomorrow and it’s going to get bad from then till Thursday).  I’m nervous and excited all at the same time and wishing like crazy that the check would hit before the weather does so I’d at least have my house here before it starts.

So, that’s what’s going on in the Tiny Hearth at the moment.

Are you being impacted by the weather where you live?
