My New Digs

So my new home is very nice.  Pretty even.  The kitchen has the usual stuff and a cooshy “rug” on the floor in front of the sink so I don’t get too uncomfortable while rinsing dishes.  The flooring is slate.  There’s a dishwasher, microwave and the kitchen sink is very big which is awesome.  There’s a wood dining table with 6 chairs around it.  I could have a dinner party.  hahaha.   That’s kinda funny.  Oh and I think the counters are marble or something expensive.

My bedroom is upstairs.  It’s furnished with a full size bed.  It’s a sleigh bed.  Very cute.  It has a matching dresser.  There’s a sliding door closet.  Big window with very modern blinds and curtains.  There’s an overhead fan.

I also have my own bathroom.  It’s modern.  Nothing junky.  Wood looking flooring.  Neutral colors so I’m going to buy pink towels and such and have a pink bathroom.  Pink’s my favorite color.

I’m going to have to buy a few things, to keep up appearances.  I don’t even own a real pillow.  I need a pillow, towels, washcloths, a bath mat.  A shower curtain and an endless bunch of stuff for the kitchen.  Well, first I’d better see what’s in the storage unit.  There ought to be SOMETHING useful in that thing!  I might have to get rid of some things too.  I don’t have much space.  Hard to believe isn’t it.  I STILL have too much stuff after 4 1/2 years of van living.  That’s ridiculous!  AND I might need to buy things.  Crazy.  Oh well.

I don’t feel bad or good being housed.  It doesn’t feel like home yet.  I wonder how long it will take.  Maybe two weeks.  My bed is super comfy and I guess I’m safer.  This place is like fort knox.

I miss D.  He’s my friend that I spend a lot of time with.  We have parted ways, at least for now.

I’m really psyched to think I could have a girlfriend over for tea or wine sometimes.  Or my children could visit me.  That’s neat.

My roommate is out of town for the next week so I’m having lots of privacy.  I’m slowly moving my things in.  I have to house sit starting tomorrow so that will slow things down anymore.  Come hell or high water I need to the rest of my crap out of the storage unit by the 30th of the month unless I want to pay for May!  I def do not.

Something different.  I put an ad on Craigslist offering to set up people’s Facebook business page.  Someone took me up on the offer so I will make a few bucks there.  I’m trying to transition into social media marketing so I can sit on my butt all day.  hahah.  Just kidding.  I’d actually like a mix of desk work and physical work.  That would provide a good mental and phsyical balance I think.

Thanks for reading everyone.  Any questions?


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.

    Ha. I want a job too where they just send me the money. Let me know where to find one!

    You may want to keep storage. Houses fill up fast. It will be a pain to move all your junk back out there.

    How are your “street smarts”? Do you still have the eyes and the instinct? Most homed people don’t see the environment as a free sleeper does.
