I was going to wait to say anything, but I cannot tell anyone yet and I have to tell someone.
We decided today that we are definitely moving out of this RV. 10 days left! We rented a townhome on VRBO and because of an unexpected bonus, we decided to move out of the RV for our last couple of months so we can get our lives back.
With this, I will be able to partially get my business working again - Tshirt Quilts only - which is what my waiting list consists of. There is no room for my embroidery machine, however. We also will be able to buy a weeks worth of groceries at a time being able to take advantage of sales. The kids will start homeschooling immediately as well.
We will have a master bedroom with our own bathroom and each child will have their own room. They have to share a shower, but with 2 1/2 baths, we can dedicate one toilet to each child.
The feeling was that the quality of life would improve so dramatically that it is worth the extra cost. The RV will be moved to our property and as soon as the barn/shed is built, our off-site storage rooms will be vacated.
A library is right across the street from us and I mean literally across the street. The townhome is 2,200 sq ft, so lots of space.
I cannot tell you how excited I am. I will never regret our time in this RV, it certainly served its purpose, it is just time to get our lives back, our privacy back, our intimacy back.
For those considering living in a RV while building - I HIGHLY recommend it. For us, it would have been completely worth it IF we did not have teenagers. If it were just my husband and I, we would be fine.
We are waiting to tell the kids until they come back from my sister's. We are moving while they are gone. It will be an amazing surprise. Obviously, it will be best when we are in our home, but this will help me when the build goes over time or if anything comes up. It is just easier to swallow when you have a door and a private bathroom.
As for the RV, we are asked all the time if we are getting rid of it. Emphatically NO!!! We are actually taking it when we take our son back to college. Road Trip! It is way more comfortable than a hotel.
Other than that, we are stuck at home mainly because DD will have theater practice every weekend until the holidays. We are also considering a trip to DC, but I don't know if will be in the RV or not.
Hope you are having a great weekend - mine just got great!
