The New Normal in the Little RV

Last Saturday Rob was discharged from the hospital. I took him home to the Little RV and then packed up and made tracks for Olympia.  I was to take him to a skilled nursing facility for admission the same day. I'll spare you the details of that day.

We arrived in Olympia in the early afternoon. I had decided to park at one of the casinos overnight and move to our semi-permanent site the next day. We got Rob admitted and settled in and I headed back to the casino. 

Sunday morning I moved to the park where I have rented a lot for 6 months. After being shown to our site and getting the Little RV parked on our site I set up the utilities. 
Our new digs for the next few months.

After setting up Murphy and I went for a walk. He was so excited to be back here at Lost Lake.

There are still a few things to get settled here like getting a key to the storage shed. We purchased a sleep number bed a few months ago and it just wasn't working for Rob so we replaced it. I had the sleep number bed in the passenger seat of the motorhome but had to move it before we left Portland. The only place I had room for it was in our car. It's still in our car and it takes up most of the extra space. I'm hoping to move it to the storage shed when I get a key. Hopefully I can sell the bed soon and get it out of my hair. 

Rob is working hard to get stronger so he can come home soon. We had our first outpatient dialysis appointment on Monday night. Getting Rob there and back to the facility was quite a fiasco but I am optimistic it will get easier. 

Yesterday a friend in the park invited us to meet her and her pup Brutus at the dog park. Brutus is a Bernese Mountain Dog. I think she said he is 7 months old now. They had a great time playing at the park. I'll close with a few photos of them frolicking in the mud. 




 Such an abundance of happiness! Don't tell anyone but I like to play in the mud and dirt too.

  1. We just brought our three dogs back from the groomer's. They sure were glad to get back home. I love the pictures of the dogs playing. They need play and have fun, too.

    1. Murphy is quite a character. He's got a wild side for sure but I'm sure he will mellow out as he gets older. He really keeps me on my toes!

  2. What a lovely, rustic, woodsy park you get to call home for the next several months. All the best to Rob on his recovery. Hope you will be back on the road by next fall!

  3. That is a very impressive RV. Loved the pictures of your dogs. I am such a huge dog fan myself. My husband and I have adopted 2 dogs from the kennels and we love them dearly. Its always nice to see other dog lovers enjoy their pets. Thank you for sharing this with us. Keep up all the hard work.
