Wants and Needs

I’m living in our 5th wheel in beautiful Pennsylvania.  I love my 5th wheel, but am new to the ‘full-timer’ game.  One thing I’ve come to see as a blessing is that living in a 5th wheel really makes you evaluate your “wants and needs”.  Like really, go to your utensil drawer, right now.  How many spatulas does a woman need?  I can only use one at a time.  If you can pull off two at once, you’re more coordinated than I am.  And how many times have I used the boiled egg slicer in the past 10 yrs…once, maybe.  Had to go.  I have cleaned out the utensil drawer, and life is so much easier.  Next, the underwear drawer.  I’m laughing out loud just thinking of the stretched out elastic in that drawer!  And anything I don’t want to be found dead in is outa here.  Simplify.  What a freeing concept.

About 49andcounting

Hi! I'm a mom, wife, grammy, sister, friend at that ALMOST 50 age!! (Okay, since I started this a few years ago...well, add a bit to 49andcounting!) How the heck did I get here so fast?!? I love, love, love- my girls, antiques, rural America, history, Jesus, junkin,the lake and my Big Boy...not particularly in that order. It's about time I change this profile a bit. After a year or living in our 5th wheel in beautiful Pennsylvania, My Big Boy and I are back to the Kansas Prairies. And there's just nothing like "Home Sweet Home". Hitting the Big 50 has its own unique, well...let's say...blessings :) So come along, laugh with me...cry with me...praise God with me...and let's do this 49andcounting thing, together!
