Familiarity in Chaos

Tonight we’re headed south. Well, we’re on our way south. I don’t think Kentucky counts as “south.”–I’m pretty sure Kentucky is in it’s own league. It’s somewhere between ORV’s , horses and the bible belt.

We’ve parked ourselves in a wal-Mart parking lot and everyones happily asleep in the mild warmth. Which is a big deal, because normally it’s freezing and we’ve been plugging in our heater. But we can’t tonight because we’re in a parking lot boondocking.–which while we’re on this tangent I want you to know that boondocking is my all time favorite RV-ing word. Now you know.

We’re rounding the three week part of this trip. And in travel terms that means we’ve hit hell week. Not lying. The three week marker in past has really sucked. It’s the point of the trip that you’re feeling pretty much done.
And before you get really worried for me I want you to know that the whole purpose of this post is to tell you that I think we’ve hit some monumental milestone as our whole family seems to be doing just fine this week.

As we begin to head south this time around things are familiar. We’ve done this before. We’ve been to Florida. We’ve lived on a bus. We’ve had no personal space.

We’ve done this before.

And I have to tell you, it’s a great feeling to see familiarity in the chaos.

We live adventure.

Who knew?

  1. Grace, I have read this at least 5 times. It brings me some comfort each time. I too have done this routine of non-routine, so I must be encouraged by this post or hoping I will find the familiarity in it somewhere!
    Much love!

  2. Hey Grace! It was awesome to meet you today! I felt like I met a long-lost friend or something :) I think our lives are crazy and yet I can’t imagine sharing it with other people, on the road! What a great story and it was such a pleasure to connect with your family.
