Secret Santa 2020

Come join the fun as we prepare Secret Santa packages throughout the year. There will be tutorials for gift ideas. Kathy will have surprise activities, maybe some "impossible missions". There are always lots of discussions so you can try to guess who your Secret Santa might be and to drop hints for gifts to your Secret Santa.

By the way, HELLO LADIES!  I have been going all out doing live streaming for our church and working in the office.  I forgot what it was like to work and have been neglecting my quilting.  Trudyann and I are going to cheer each other on to finish all our projects (she is much more organized and productive than I am).

Another useful purchase is the sewer tank cleaner attachment.  Forget what it's called but it attaches with a hose and sprays water into the tanks to clean out.  Works better than running water from the top.

That should be GLAMPING not clamping.  My husband says I bring our whole house with us when we travel.

Comment by Melanie Keith yesterday

Oh Kathy, what fun you will have traveling!  We bought a 1984 Minnie Winnie in 2012 just to find out if we like camping.  We DID!  But now we do clamping in our 2001 Infinity.  It's 38 ft and has everything and more storage than most.  We have changed some things - one wallpaper trim and put a tile backsplash in the kitchen area  Like Kris, I opted to change the shower head.  We also changed out the bathroom exhaust fan and put a hood over it.  Next big project is to remove the carpeting in the living area and replace with a ergo type floor.  Next year's project.

We did not use it much this year because of COVID - you have to self-quarantine while traveling and our big trip to AZ was with my sister-in-law and husband who only had 10 days to spend.  Hard to quarantine for 14.  We will reschedule this trip for next year.  Hope you enjoy the ride!

Comment by Kathy Gurgone on Monday

Kris, thanks for the info.  Every little bit helps.  My husband is wanting to get a washer/dryer combo for the camper.  Does anyone have any experience with them?  I would rather keep the bunk beds, but he doesn't want to use a laundry mat when we are on the road..

Hope you can find time for yourself, Lee!

what a roller coaster ride.  I have been working up to 80 hours a week.  I'm gonna try to catch up on comments.  I am still here lol.  Hope everyone is staying safe.

Feel  better soon Colleen! I think the "Be happy for 2020 to be Over" club is growing!!!

Kathy, I don't envy you that project!

I'm feeling better now that we know what caused the set back and are taking steps to rectify the problem. My new shoes with the built in lift that levels out my pelvis and legs are amazing! The therapist said walking indoors I no longer need a walker or cane. I don't need them outdoors either if walking on a sidewalk. However, in my development we do not have sidewalks. So I must continue to use a walker since walking on the street is a fall risk...there is too much gravel from people's yards (we don't have grass here). Today for the first time in what seems like forever, I walked around the block.

Our shipping date is fast approaching!

Colleen - so sorry to hear about the surgery.  Hope you heal quickly.

Comment by Kris Howell on October 15, 2020 at 7:27pm

Kathy - we live in our RV 6 months out of the year and in a mobile home the other 6 months.  Absolutely necessary:  a comfortable bed - whatever it takes.  A drinking water hose with a filter, and an adjustable water pressure regulator.  Camping World carries a hose brand name Zero G that is light weight, expands with water, and shrinks down with out it that we love.  Depending on where you go, and the time of year, an electric heater (unless you are boondocking) and a fan.  I replaced the shower head with one that packs a bit more oomph in the spray.  That's an individual choice, not a have to.  Find a place for your fun things.  For me, it's sewing stuff, books and internet for the computer and Kindle..  I have a few hard cover books, but most of my reading is on the Kindle.  For hubby it's the satellite for his TV programs.  After you pack in your fun stuff, then you can do your clothes, dishes and food and toiletries.  Feel free to ask questions as you outfit your rolling home.
