January's Jiggly Roll!
A new year and a new project are already upon us. 2021 is starting off with a long to-do list for #rollingandwriting. Our first project in the new year is already completed and we have finished the renovation of the Mother-in-law's bathroom. It was a lot of work since we stripped
the room to the studs and rebuilt it from the floor up but it came out great. There always seems to be so much to get done with our #rollingandwriting life that we are never bored. Often, people will ask us if we get bored but honestly, we have no time to be bored. When we have a nice down day we take full advantage of it. We live a normal if different kind of life in our rig and we are nowhere near being retired or living a life of leisure.
It was hard work putting this bathroom back together but some of the upgrades for the house are obvious. With both the every-day-hero and I have mothers of a certain age we put a few features in place to help keep the MIL safe. You can see the
grab bars in both the tub and at the edge of the tub. When my brother-in-law put grab bars in my mom's place she found that she needed one at the side of the tub not only in the tub. Pretty smart if you ask me. Grab bars come in many sizes and are an inexpensive way to help keep those we love safe. Replacing the other fixtures in the bathroom also really made everything nice and more convenient for the mom-in-law to use. I think one of the best upgrades, however, was replacing the sink and all of the faucets and fittings. Not only do they look and work great, but they also save water and make life easier. While looking at faucets and helping to pick out
appropriate fittings I even saw one I would like to add to the RV. It is truly time to change out the faucet in the kitchen. Just like any other home RVs require care and maintenance.
2021 is looking like it will bring a lot of changes to our life. The everyday-hero has signed a contract that will take us back to Yellowstone and this time for a slightly longer working summer. At the moment we are scheduled to be there from April to Novemeber. I'm looking forward to spending time in the park and seeing so many seasons change while we are there. There is so much to see and so many new
places to explore as well as wonderful people to meet up with. I am hoping that 2021 will get life back to normal soon and that we will be able to meet up with friends and family as we roll. So what comes next? I am busy writing and getting new books ready for release. We will be working on other projects in the RV including possible furniture upgrades. We would like to add a reclining love seat and upgrade the TV. Now that we will be sitting still a bit longer we know what changes we would like to see in the rig. This would not only be a nice place to relax in the evening after work but a great place for me to write. Although RVs come with different layouts and furniture situations you can still change and upgrade if you wish. They always say that your first rig is never your last, but that doesn't mean you can't modify things as needed.
Along with possibly adding a new seating plan, we have always wanted to switch out our booth seating for a desk. We haven't figured that out yet but we'll see what we can do. It is kind of exciting to look ahead to making our home on wheels even more comfortable but it is always a little scary making changes.
I hope that 2021 will be a great year and that God will be gracious to all of us. Stay tuned for what comes next in this new year.
