2 weeks in, what I’ve learned.

I love a challange, I am stubborn, and I HATE asking for help. God on the other hand, loves to laugh at my stubbornness! We have been fulltime 5th wheel living for 2 weeks now, and while 2/3 kids are in school, I take my toddler with me to move out and clean up our military housing. Downsizing from are 2400 square foot home to a 300 square foot tiny house has not been difficult. Moving always has a twinge of tension, but thanks to absolutely amazing friends, we were able to move our possessions into storage within only 2 hours! 
I have always tried to be independent, believing that others will eventually let you down, and relying on oneself was the only way to succeed. This is wrong, and has been proven over and over this week (as well as through every difficult moment in my life). In the last two weeks I have had 4 people help me with problems that I faced, pouring into me, building up my knowladge, and reaffirming that my husband and I made the correct choice. I have learned how to…

Change propane tanks that are almost impossible to fit into place

Fix our AC and heat

Level our 5th wheel in 30 mph winds

And last but not least, I am learning how to fix clogs in drains and how to repair basic plumbing! 

 

Yes, two weeks in and we have a fairly major clog in our kitchen and bathroom sink, while this is stressful and it can be a bit (read extremely) frustrating, I’ve also learned how to take pipes apart, snake also drain, empty tanks and blow out a line. This drain isnt fixed yet, but thanks to amazing friend here in our RV park, I have faith that all will be fixed soon. 
Remember, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” ~Joshua 1:9
