I guess it's harder on her because she lives so far away (Bellingham) and Tony & Tracie are here in the same city. Heck, Tony only lives 2 blocks away! So the two T's get to be more of a part of it...Amy, you are so important to Dad and I!! I'll bet this way we get to spend MORE time with ya, Hon. We can just park near your house, you and Pops can take off on the Road Glide while I watch all the pups! :) I know, ANY change takes time to get used to it.
Every story that we've read about getting an entire household into a 40 ft space says we will pare it down to the bare bones, then go weight the rig...and find we still need to take less! Our goal is to come in under-weight on the FIRST scale-stop!! We'll see how we do.
I am going to keep my Kitchen-Aid, but instead of taking a blender, I'll look for a multiple machine base...one that you switch it up and it's a blender, a food-processor, etc. I'm glad we got our little "motor-boat," as Emeril calls it, blending wand...it has a ton of attachments, but isn't powerful enough, IMHO, to do the job of a 'real' blender. We are starting to cook like we're on the road, too. And grocery shop...everything! I want to get used to cooking without having left-overs...get my timing and temps down. I've never cooked on a gas stove-top, so THAT should be interesting, too! :)
It's going to be hard on us to leave the kids...that will be the hardest part of the whole adventure. Tracie and I have never been apart...nor Tony and Pirate. Thank the good Lord above for all of the communication tools we have available to us now-a-days!!
We are REALLY going to miss this little girl the MORST!
