We left Kansas January and returned the end of May.....
We loved our dreamy winter in Florida and a FUN spring run to Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee & Ohio! But alas, it was time to circle back to Kansas and our home sweet hub.
As we moved back in to our space, a blog formed in my head called:
12 THINGS YOU NOTICE AFTER LIVING IN AN RV
Here we go:
#1 - Regular Water Pressure
Regular water pressure feels like a HIGH POWDERED pressure washing MIRACLE WORKER! Especially after several low pressure rv park water systems!
We all had to stare and comment on the amazing power of WATER on dirty dishes. Haha! :)
Speaking of water and #2....
#2 - WATER in the Toilet
In an RV, you manually add water to the toilet, before you can do your business. Sometimes things are um, urgent and people can barely get water in fast enough to do their duty.
We all reach for the side of the toilet to push the button to add water when we first get home. LOL! :D
Hey guys, guess what? These toilets COME WITH WATER ALREADY IN THEM!!!!
#3 - While We Are STILL Discussing Water
Did you know in a home not on wheels, you can run the dishwasher, washing machine, the sink AND the shower at the SAME TIME?!
Shut the front door.
Who invents this stuff?!
#4 - Five Bar Cell Service and Wifi
You mean cell phones and verizon wifi boxes can have FIVE bars of service? WHAT is this phenomenon?
RV parks are notorious for horrible cell service in park and spotty Wifi you share with all the neighbors. NO BUENO!
We can hardly believe how strong our signal gets when we get home. Not always in our metal shed home, but most of the time outside it!!!
#5 - Anybody Home?
I swear, I spend half my time in our home sweet hub, trying to FIND MY FAMILY!!!!
After living in 400 sq feet most of the year, 1600 sq ft feels ENORMOUS.
Guys? Guuuyyyyyssss????? DALE?!
WHERE IS EVERYONE?
#6 - Warp Speed Laundry
It's not until I get home to my full sized washer and dryer that I realize just how HUGE they really are compared to my cute little RV washer dryer set.
We do 2 loads a day in the RV, to stay on top of things. At our home sweet hub I can do FIVE GIANT loads of laundry, in the time it takes the RV washer/dryer to do ONE.
What is this time and speed conundrum?
#7 - Toilet Paper LUXURY
Regular toilet paper is SO SOFT and luxurious!!!!!
Rv toilet paper has to be single ply so it doesn't clog the fancy imancerator system.
I JUST WANT SOFT PAPER FOR MY TOOSHIE, OKAY!? It's the little things people.
#8 - I Want My Bed
First world problems, when you like your RV mattress better than your home sweet hub one.
I WANT MY SOFT BED BACK!
#9 - Pooper Duty
You take your dog out to do her business and by habit, reach for a pooper duty bag!
OH YEAH......NO more pooper scooping when you are home, HALLELUJAH!
#10 - Bake ALL THE THINGS
RV convection oven doesn't bake in the center, and it heats up the whole home, so you learn quickly to grill, OR, do skillet or instant pot meals.
That means when you get home, YOU BAKE ALL THE THINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Casseroles, egg bakes, comfort foods, brownies, cupcakes.... ALL. THE. BAKED. THINGS. NOW.
#11 - A SHOPPING SPREE
When you are gone so many months from what you dub your "Kansas Closet", you find clothes you like again, and get to switch for items you are tired of in your RV closet!
FREE SHOPPING SPREE ANYONE?!
Yes, we all share the RV closet x 6. We just have to be choosy what comes with us! We also all share the "Kansas Closet" upstairs, full of winter clothes we only need when we are here in cold weather.
Downstairs in the laundry room is our "Family Closet". Super handy on laundry day AND when it's time to move in and out of the RV closet, seasonly.
And #12 in our list of things you notice we you live in an RV for a while......
How quickly your heart misses it...............
.......and how BADLY you want to get back in it and go for another ADVENTURE!!!!!!
We are in Kansas for the rest of the summer, barring a few quick trips here and there.
So long until next time.....
