A Day in the Life
Stephanie at We Choose This Life has asked full-time RVing families to describe a typical day in our life on the road.
It seems most people assume that because we live and travel in a motorhome we’ve struck it rich, are retired, and are spending all of our time on vacation. That’s probably the impression given by my blog as well, since most of my posts are about the fun things we do. However, that is not the case. We are just blessed to have been able to find a way to make a living and still be able to pursue our love of travel. So, for our “Day in the Life” I’ve decided to pick a work day for us.
Our day started out like any other family’s. We got up, got ready for work, made breakfast, and made lunches to take to work. I gathered Son’s schoolwork and made sure his lessons for the day were written up. We then headed out to work.
Our job consists of custom-making protective sun screens for RV windows and tires. Hubby installs snaps in the customer’s RV, and measures and cuts the material. I then sew a binding around the edge to give it a nice finished look.
Finally, Hubby installs the screens on the RV. While we were working, Son was doing his school work. We all enjoyed visiting with the customer’s while we worked.
After work we went “home” and had dinner. We finished off the evening with enjoying the Hamner-Barber Show, which was wonderful! Son especially enjoyed it. The show alternates between the magic of Dave Hamner and his wife, and the ventriloquism and comedy of Jim Barber.
I know, not all that exciting, right?! This was a pretty typical day for us. Like most people, work and school take up a large part of our time. What’s different about our lifestyle is how we spend our days off. On our days off we are able to go out and explore the area where we are staying. That’s when we get to go to the museums, national parks, etc.
