Well we are almost at the end of our season here at the Parks - the gates close Saturday Oct 1 at 11:00 am. Whoo. Behind us are 160 days straight days of working between the two of us. So now we have the task of packing up - moving from 400 sq ft into 135 sq ft which I know sounds like moving from small to smaller. It is!

One thing about the way we live is that we have learned to live efficiently! Derek and I are good with that but a 2 1/2 year old toddler? - not so much. It is not just what she needs - or will want now - but what to bring for the next 6 months! And really - how did someone so young accumulate so so many stuffed animals!

Here is our trailer now! It won't look like this for long. Over the years I have certainly learned a lot about packing our travel trailer - I always always bring too much! Not this year - I am making a real effort to make sure we have just enough but not too much.

Thankfully our trailer is quite roomy for it's length and has a lot of storage. Living in a small space like this means that everything has to have a place behind a door. It is the only way to make it feel as large as possible. I have no idea why but we spend a lot of our time everyday cleaning the trailer.

Last year - having given up my closest - the best closet - to Cassia (the things a mother will do for her child knows no bounds) I took the worst closet for myself. Well - not this year. I figure that since Derek wears two outfits the whole time we are gone that he should have to be in the 8" wide space.

On that note I bid adieu to you and you and you. It is late and I must to go to bed. We lose our internet tomorrow which is a good thing with so much packing and cleaning to do. I will pick this blog up again once we are on the road and can get wifi or OPI.

  4. I do not write a leave a response, however after reading through a few of the comments on "packing up and heading out".

    I actually do have a few questions for you if it's allright. Is it simply me or does it give the impression like some of these remarks appear as if they are written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting on additional places, I'd like to follow anything fresh you have
    to post. Could you make a list of every one of all your
    social community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
