Cool Website and an update

I ran across this blog today when I was looking for something else.  This woman is FASCINATING to me.  She’s a Christian UNschooler who travels across the country with hubby and kids in a Winnebago or their Mini Winnie as they call it.

Walk Slowly Live Wildly

I think I will be done with my current assignment this weekend unless the lady wants me to come back.  I will miss her and her doggies and I will miss all the extra money I have been making.

Making good money has motivated me though.  I quite like having money in the bank.  It’s been a long time since I have been in that position.  It feels good knowing that if something came up, I could probably handle it financially.

So I am going to try harder to get something else going that pays well.  Maybe more elder-sitting or whatever you want to call what I’m doing.

Things are getting serious with the condition of the van.  Pretty much everything seems to be wrong with it.  I HOPE to have a new vehicle in the next week or so.  I’m not going to spend a lot because I don’t want to deplete my bank account.  I had a good year before I had to fix my $1,300 van, if I remember correctly.   When I think back to when I was paying between 3-4k per month in car payments I shudder!  Never again!  (not that anyone would extend credit to me anyway, giggle!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

About Maureen, Living in a Van

I'm a free-sleeper living in a van in the prettiest part of the world. I do this partly due to financial circumstances and partly because I love a good adventure.

    Wow! Look at that RV. It’s all decked out. Looks more like a house. Strange that she has dreadlocks.

    Usually its cheaper to fix an old vehicle that to buy a new old. Good luck!

      I have heard this and I’m sure it is true of say,,,ten year old vehicles but mine is older so a lot goes wrong! Also, when a car or van that is only worth 1000 dollars, you start wondering if it is smart to put in a 1000+ transmission. Especially if something else might go out the following week.
