Houston, We Have a Problem… Our Visit to the Houston Space Center

Space Center
Last weekend we made the trek from Livingston, TX to Houston.  Our plan was to visit the space center in Houston after a stop at the Apple store.  Unfortunately what we were hoping was going to be a quick in and out visit to the “Genius Bar” to fix a boot up problem with my Mac turned into a five hour ordeal.  No space center for us!  It would have to wait.  This weekend we tried again and the mission was a success.

Keeping Busy Doing Nothing

Keeping Busy Doing NothingOne of the biggest adjustments for us as new full time RVers has been figuring out what to do with our free time.  As a home owner, it is amazing how much of your day is eaten up by maintaining a household.  When you no longer have to mow the lawn and cleaning ‘the house’ takes 15 minutes, you find yourself with a lot more free time on your hands.  The good news is that it gives me more time to write.  The bad news is that right now there isn’t much to write about, so this will be a post about doing nothing… and it turns out that sometimes doing nothing can lead to a pretty full day too!
