Love??? Part 6

Sorry I haven’t written in a while.  I’ve been out living life.

Well I don’t think it’s going to work out with the guy and me.  I need someone who shares my values and I don’t believe he is that guy.  Enough said.  At least for now.  🙁

I might join a dating website.  I’m kinda tired of the whole guy thing right now though, I’ve gotta be honest.

I’ve been doing lots of stuff since I wrote last though.  Going to church.  Taking a meditation class.  Meeting new people at the coffee shop.

I met a man who’s a Christian and is setting up something to help homeless and poor people eat healthier.  That’s right up my alley!  I followed up with him and got to meet a local business owner who is donating food to this.  It was a very interesting meeting.  The business owner was a free-sleeping hippy back in the day and it turns out my friend that I met in the coffee shop lives in his van, just like me.  I took a chance and told my new friend that I’m a free-sleeper too.  It was neat.  He invited me to park near his van at night and he will keep an eye on me.  It’s nice to have it as a backup option but I probably won’t do that.  I don’t trust just trust strangers automatically.  Plus I don’t want any complications, if you know what I mean.  I have a mission in life and I can’t be distracted by any silly drama.

I’m going to take my first archery lesson this Saturday.  What do you think of that?

I’m trying to stay really busy, partly so I don’t think so much about being a spinster.

Waaaaaaah…’s been a hard week emotionally but a friend of mine says that I am at a time of my life that I should learn to be more useful. (Thanks MW)  I think that’s good advice.


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.

    So glad to see you back. I was thinking worrisome things, with your just having met that guy and all. I have lived in rvs, tents, never just a vehicle tho would love to live in a van but can’t…too old I guess (70). I live with my kids now, taking turns with each of them. You have the best life (but be careful!).

    Hattie, you are so sweet to be concerned. I don’t believe I was in any serious danger but I did need to move away from that situation.

    I DO love my way of living. It is quite the adventure!

    Archery? Nice. Much cheaper than firearms and one doesn’t need Washington’s approval. That should be fun.

    Glad to see you back, Maureen. I was very concerned about you, too.

    I’m so glad to see that you landed on your feet and are moving on. Helping with the homeless food bank, church and archery sounds like you are moving into more satisfying pursuits that will make your life richer and fuller.

    And being a “spinster” sure beats being trapped with the wrong guy!

    I wish you the very, very best. 🙂
