I don’t know if my optimism for taking on struggles and embracing them as part of the Journey in my last post was an invitation for more of these struggles — but I’ve certainly got a full load now!  No income til February, no savings, no health insurance…

And the latest?  An extremely painful infection that has been getting worse by the day for the past week!  Finding medical treatment for someone with my state of affairs is quite a challenge and, after being sent on one wild goose chase after another (I’ve investigated every fairy tale that has been suggested to me), I’m left with basically the hope that my condition improves very soon.

And hey where did my “friend” disappear to?  I guess she wanted no part of the broke AND laid up RiverCat!

Trash Can Overtakes Dinette!

(Sinks are Beneath the Piles of Dishes)

I had the pleasure of dropping in on my old friends at RV Dreams chat room last night and actually apologized to people that have been following my misadventures for the past few months.  I told them that I just didn’t know if I should continue to post about my ongoing struggles, as it’s just not what I wanted this website to be about.  They told me I should continue to “keep it real.”  For now, I will — just without going into the most painful details of my current plight.

It was a great mix in the chatroom last night — a handful of veteran full-timers, a couple wannabes, and even a new full-timer that was in the planning stages last time I’d visited with her!  I also finally got to meet Howard’s better half, Linda, for the first time.

The really neat thing about this venue is that it is such a friendly crowd all about connecting with each other in real life.  In the past, I’ve e-mailed full-timers that are “less-than-eager” to get acquainted.  Not so in this chatroom!  Everybody wants to know where everyone is going so they can “meet up.”  In fact, it seems I’ll get to meet a couple of them by spring.

In fact, I’m going to be there tonight!  What else do I have to do while popping pain killers and keeping my leg propped on a pillow!  YOU are invited visit with me.  It seems the busy times are about 9:00-11:00 EST?  Here is the link .  I should mention you’ll look like a “rookie” if unless you use a proper handle.  The thing to do is denote the state you’re in at the end of your name.  Example: “RiverCat_AZ”.   See ya if I see ya!
