It turned out to be a mighty perty day for travelin’. Right now most of the Wilson’s are in Target as Ike (11+) uses a gift card to buy some latest Lego. I’m out in the RV fixen’ stuff while Jed (3) and Cal (5) build a fort in one of the bunks.
You’ve got to be kind of handy if your going to RV because things are always breaking…especially if you have kids. Why just in the last 24 hours I’ve had to work on the furnace (fixed it), one of the skylights that decided to blow open last night (fixed it), and the bathroom mini-blind that one of the kids pulled off the wall (fixed it).
Those were easy inconveniences which I’m fine with. I’m just praying that none of the big stuff breaks. If only families were that easy.
The big thing that I’m working on is being nice. That’s not always so easy…because sometimes ‘they’ bug me. They don’t get along and ruin a fun drive down the highway. But I’m going to try…I mean really try. I’m going to trust God, smile, and let things slide.
Truth is it doesn’t matter if they whisper and talk in their beds until late at night, take 15 minutes instead of five minutes to brush their teeth, or wrestle on the back bed (and destroy everything) because they’re all keyed up.
I want this Familyman Mobile thing to be fun…and it won’t be if I’m not nice.
I’ve gotta go. I’m supposed to do a radio interview at 7:30…although I’m not sure which time zone that would be.
Swing wide and keep your eye on your tail,
