Last nights in the Van

Well today’s the second of April and I’m moving into my new place on the 15th of this month.  Technically I have 13 nights of free sleeping in my van left but I’m house sitting for three of those nights so that leaves 10 nights.

I’m supposed to be looking forward to it but I’m a little nervous about paying rent AND trying to keep my van running.  I’m not sure I can do it.  The woman who owns the house is also a client so it would be so embarrassing if I had to leave after a month or two.

Still I will have much more privacy.  I hope my roommate just keeps to herself like I intend to.  A bad roommate can make life a living hell.  I’ve heard the stories.  And I will have to be considerate of her sleep times etc.  I can’t just jump in the shower or cook myself something to eat in the middle of the night like I could if I had my own place (Not that I did that very often before but you get the idea).

Right now I’m sitting in a parking lot writing this post  using my phone with people all around me.  This time a couple of weeks from now I’ll be typing my posts from my laptop in my room, all by myself with pretty pictures on the walls around me.  I’m going to splurge a little and buy a fancy comforter for my bed.  That will pretty much set the tone for my room.

Can you tell I’m trying to psych myself up for this?

I’m probably going to feel a little closed in, in a room.  I’m guessing that when I first move in I will “hole” up in there for days in end, when I’m not working, then I will get cabin fever and get out.  I guess a lot of people do that sort of thing.   I think I may still sleep in my van from time to time.  I have this wonderful spot near the ocean and summer is right around the corner.  I love summer in the van.

Well I guess that’s enough if my gambling for today.  Have a good one!

    Nice to be able to sleep in your van, but I have read ( I don’t know how true this is ) that HUD is planning to push making it ilegal to live in RV’s & vans- please check Bob Wells’ latest blog.
    Wish you’d enjoy your new arrangements we all deserve happiness.

    It will be a change for sure. Pros and cons as with everything. I too hope that the finances work out for you going forward.

    Will be interested in hearing how things are going forward for you.
