New Adventures

Well, it looks like hubby and I are starting the new year with a trip to southern California! We just got word that his job is just about done here and we'll be going to L.A. for the next one. I really like it here in Oregon, and we've gotten to see alot of beautiful sights here, but I have been sick the entire time here and I really think that there is something here that is making me feel sick all the time, so with that said.....Look out we come!
For those of you that do not know, my husband travels all over the country for his job. We never know where the next job will be or how long we'll be there. We may be somewhere for a month or even up to a year, it just depends on the job he is doing or how aggressive his schedule is. is crazy, but it's also nice too! The kids are all out of the house and this is our time to get to know each other again as just a couple without all the goings on of raising kids and all the things that go with raising them. I loved being a stay at home mom and my kids are my world, but things get crazy and people get busy and it's hard to have a relationship with your partner when you are so busy or so tired that it just gets pushed aside. So here we are...getting on the road again and going to a new place to see new things and to meet new people!
I do love to travel and see new places, but the living part of it is kinda tricky. I am a very routine in everything I do and all this change makes me a little crazy...I am pretty much a homebody, so I try to make our hotel stays as much like home as I can get it! We usually stay at Extend stay hotels, they have more room, a small kitchen, and feel more like a small apartment. If I can cook and get out and about in a nice area, then I am good to go! My hubby laughs at me because I would rather cook my own food and I drag my little toaster oven everywhere we go! He calls it my Suzy Bake Oven! I also have a George Foreman Grill and and a few travel pots and pans that I like to use. With all of that, I can make anything I want to eat and I don't have to eat junk all the time and I don't have to worry about all the weird stuff they put in my food! I am hoping that by the time we are ready to settle down and retire we are in the best shape of our lives. I do not want to be sick and worn out in my retirement years!
So with all that's to traveling to new places and meeting new people. I am ready for the new year of traveling, living my dreams out and to making my life the best it has ever been!  Looking forward to getting my blog in shape and to bringing some good things your way! Until next time, be safe, be healthy, and be good!

  1. Hi Jackie! It's nice to see you posting regularly! I hope you enjoy LA - there are a lot of great restaurants and sights there. Sorry you were sick so much in Oregon. I think your life - while hectic sounds delightful as well! I understand being a creature of habit and I'd be taking my easy bake oven with me, too!
