|Jacob's letter :) I love that he says "Boot Camp is pretty fun"..REALLY? He's the RCPO (Recruit|
Chief Petty Officer)! He is the command of his division..
Awesome Jacob!! Very proud of ourGrandson!
We've had a few changes since the last posting. We're leaving here on Friday to head for Tennessee by way of Paso Robles, CA! John and Karen are there so we'll visit them first. We decided since Ken doesn't have any appointments until April now is the time to do it. Take the Mansion on her first major trip!
We're planning on being at Ken's brother Don's place somewhere in the first week or so of March. Jacob graduates on the 13th of March at Great Lakes, IL. I'll rent a car and head up there. Ken's sister Diane and her son Jesse will fly in as well as Russell, Lori, Aaron and Allissa. I'm looking forward to the drive and seeing the country up there! On the way back hoping to drive Route 66 in Illinois. On a show the other night they showed it and looked like some cute towns. 💗😉 Ken's not going, we can't go to the graduation anyway as they only hand out limited tickets. I figure I don't want to miss the chance of seeing Jacob if only for a few hours or the weekend. No one knows for sure yet, as he won't have his orders until right before graduation. We can still watch the graduation live on TV!
Today was a baking day. I want to get Seth a care package out before we leave so made a few things and then stocking up on Ken's morning treats since I'm not sure yet how the oven works in the Mansion. I'll be checking it out I'm sure.
|Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies..Fudgy Brownies..Applesauce|
Oatmeal mini loaves and Ken's Applesauce Oatmeal muffins..
Ken ran to DMV to register the Mansion! OUCH!
On to the Mansion. Saturday was spent getting rid of stuff I know I don't need anymore. Trying to use as much plastic stuff rather than glass. I feel really good about how it looks now. Of course I'm sure there will be more things I need, but it felt good to pitch another wheelbarrow load of stuff! 😱😱😰 I've decided less is best!
|Too modern for us..but ready to go!|
|It works..not huge but ok!|
|The stove is too pretty to use!|
|You probably can't see but is a pretty light!|
|Storage space below the bed..(Dave, this is where the wine will go) LOL..|
|Sun is setting!|
|Ken's space outside.. he's filling it up..|
Ken got the sway bar on and has taken it for a few test drives, works well. He's having fun loading up his area of the trailer. 😀
We had our first Happy Hour in it Saturday afternoon and it was so nice..Nice and bright and BIG!! :)
Sunday was spent getting taxes done for Bryan and Cheryl. Then got our stuff done and emailed to Winnemucca. YAY! Done!
Monday I was working on this and then nothing would load.. so Ken stated a fire outside. Poor me..Happy Hour..under the stars..
He bar b qued awesome burgers and now it's time for bed. I wanted to see if I could get this done first..Yay..it worked..Good night!! Carson City tomorrow to get the Tundra serviced, then Reno for wine, Winco and Sam's Club! An early day!!
