Who Stole February?


What happened to February? I opened my email this morning to find a message from a friend on Facebook asking where and how I am. Then, when I looked back to see I haven’t posted a Trippin’ Thursday entry since mid-January, it occurred to me that I’ve been pretty much absent in the social media playhouse. 

RV problems, doctor visits, birthdays, visits to our son and my mom, writing events, photo shoots, and numerous other projects totally filled my days and nights. And keep in mind, every trip to Mom or our son or the doctor is over four hours, round trip. 

My last entry whined about our fifth wheel problems. Major things like a broken heater have been fixed, but some cosmetic problems are still not completed. I really want to whine about that snafu. The dealer ordered in the wood and other parts, called us, and we headed out. It took most of a day for us to ready for the trip to Prescott. Only after we left the unit on their lot did they discover the manufacturer sent the wrong wood. The kitchen island is still not fixed. We’ll have to take it to Prescott again in a couple of months. My anger was tempered by spending three days with son and family. Sadi wanted us to spend four weeks. I went to her gymnastics class and to her Little
Sadi on far left
Learners class. So much fun.

In February, I made three trips to the Indian Medical Center—two trips for me and one for Mom. Strictly preventative. We also celebrated our son’s birthday. He is not a birthday celebrator kind of guy. Too bad. I consider that date the best of my life, and I’m going to celebrate it no matter what!

We sold our Cancun time share in February. It’s a mixed bag of emotions on that transaction. We’ve had some great times on the beaches of Cancun and wandering the streets in the old city. But we haven’t gone there in a few years so it was time to let it go. This is my only stab at a money saving tip this time. If you don't use it, get rid of it. I'm doing that with clothes and kitchen stuff right now, which you could sell or give to a charity. On a larger scale, the Cancun villa funds will get me a car and a savings account boost. This is the best kind of recycling!

I did a radio talk show gig with two writer friends in Prescott. That was fun. In a week or so it will be archived. I’ll post the link if you’re interested. 

What kind of February did you have?

Now on to March! I plan to enjoy the signs of spring on the RV Ranch, celebrate my granddaughter's birthday and my daughter-in-law's birthday, and get some writing done. What are your plans?


  1. Wow, sounds like you've had a busy, busy month. a friend of mine used to live in Prescott and she misses it, so when you spoke of it, I felt as if I 'almost' knew it ;) My February went by in a blur, too. So fast! Hope your March is marvelous.

    1. Prescott is a great city, Barbara. Here's to a great March for both of us!

  2. Lovely photo, Brenda. Hope you have a great March.
