Ultimatum update.

I shared with you a few weeks ago about how I want to go to a Vision Forum conference in San Antonio this summer and Big D said we could go IF we bought a motorhome. The ultimatum had been issued. Phase one of the ultimatum involved selling our travel trailer and I'm happy to report phase one is complete, thanks to some wonderful friends at church who sold it for us on their RV lot commission free. I realize this doesn't mean we'll find a motorhome to our liking and in our price range in time for the conference, but at least we've freed up some space in our driveway and added some dollars to our RV fund.

As far as purchasing a motorhome goes, I'm not at all sure how we're going to be able to do that. There aren't many used ones for sale where we live and Big D and I are both a little intimidated to buy one sight unseen via ebay or another online dealer. Remember that Seinfeld episode with the terrible smell that entrenches itself in Jerry's BMW? I can just see us buying an RV over the internet then learning only too late that it stinks so bad we can't stand to go anywhere in it. And you know how sensitive pregnant women are to smells!

The funny thing is, there is a motorhome we found on ebay that we're interested in and, irony of ironies, it's in San Antonio. Maybe Big D will go get it for us next week. Poor guy, I think he was hoping to get out of going to San Antonio this summer and now it looks like he may be going there twice! Oh well, he's always up for an adventure and he's been wanting a motorhome for a long time. He said he may even get his dad to go with him and drive our car back for us. I'll let you know how it all turns out. (I don't think the rest of the family was invited this time- memories of our Houston trip must still be haunting Big D:).


  1. Good luck finding the right one. Hope everyone will be content in the end.

  2. hahaha. fun times. I want to go so badly but unless Jake goes with me I am not going. we just found out today he got orders for Iraq. He deploys January 6th and my world just crashed. Going to spend a lot of time with him before then. But maybe, just maybe, he might want to go....

  3. Sorry to hear about Iraq, Val. You'll have to bring the kids down for lots of visits.

I'm an on-the-run mom to 6 kids who studied and taught exercise science in a previous life. I love all things running, nutrition, and health-related. I usually run at zero dark thirty in the morning and am often quite hungry before, during, and after my run, but I live a rich, full, blessed life with my children, family, and friends. My faith in God is my anchor, and looking to Him and His promises allows me to live fully even when life circumstances are difficult. While running gives me an appetite, my desire is to hunger and thirst for righteousness more than for physical food.
