Thanks for emailing Rob for us, Cate! Thanks LaMa! I was talking to J about the camper van, and I think we can all use it when we need our own space. K can use it to play guitar if J needs quiet to make calls, I can hang out and read in it, and we realized we now have a guest house!

Well, my 2 day streak of good food and exercise got temporarily interrupted. Friends unexpectedly came to town and we went out for ribs, and I ate some cobbler, and bam weight went way up. And I was exercising with K who got too busy, so I must just exercise alone the next day if we can't do it together. I am determined to help Cate stay on track by me staying on track, so this is just a small hiccup, and today is a salad day!!

Careful with that or you're not going to have any room again!

I don't think I would be telling too many people that the RV can be a guest house! It sounds like it will have more than enough uses. It would be nice to have it as your haven.
I emailed Rob a couple of weeks ago (4th Jan) so am not feeling very hopeful that he'll reply. I don't want to pester him. He gave me all his contact details, so I might just send him a postcard soon.
Life gets in the way, M, but enjoying dinner out with friends is nice. it will be water weight & will be gone quickly :)

Thanks Cate and LaMa. I think you're right about keeping it our little haven. Cate, if you do send Rob a postcard, please tell him hi for me!

We visited a beach we hadn't been to since my mom was more mobile, so a few years ago, and it was so so gorgeous with the hills covered in new sour grass and clover with the bright yellow flowers and the groves of windswept eucalyptus arching over the hills. There was a tree swing in this twisty tree hanging over a ravine, and K had a really nice time swinging while I ran around and took lots of beautiful pictures. Then we went down to the beach where there were so many sand pipers and happy dogs running and happy people, I'd forgotten how gorgeous that place is, and perfect for sketching. We all sketched there with my mom way back when. We also found a phone and luckily the owner was in the parking lot and called it while we were there, too. So good exercise day, and good food day, too. I made oat flour waffles for brunch, and I put blueberries on mine, and it only came to 300 calories. I love the taste of things made with oat flour, and it's so easy to grind up oats in the blender and have super cheap gf flour. Stayed just under calories today and got really good exercise!

I will send Rob a postcard M & I will say hi from you. I’ll either send him a Tassie devil or a wombat postcard.
The beach visit sounds wonderful.
That’s a great tip about making oat flour. I’ll do that. I really feel like trying to make my own gf bread.

Today went zipping by and all I did was learn about investment properties and discuss where we want to move with J. I think we may have it narrowed down. Then did some dishes, picked up K and brought her to her band practices, went to a cafe and looked at realtors online who were recommended by our amazing realtor here, and poof, the day is done. I still have to do yoga. I am having a hot lemon water so I don't snack as I am out of calories for the day. Anyway, we are looking at about 3 areas on the coast around Charleston, South Carolina, and all are beautiful and have some houses in our price range.

Things are moving kinda faster than I expected with finding a new home and with having a travel trailer. I wish I were moving faster as far as unpacking, but I am just trying to keep up with all the changes in our lives, and will keep plugging along emptying boxes. I think I am almost caught up on relaxation from the whole move thing.

I honestly expected you guys to do a lot of traveling before picking a new area but how exciting that you're looking at new properties already!
Careful with the lemon water if you're having it spread out over the day as it's quite acidic and can damage your enamel.

Wow! I'm also surprised that things are moving so fast. That is exciting.
