Walk The Walk

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. Walking is what we do. All day. Every day. Unless we are sleeping.

Or unless we are traveling.

Or unless we are eating.

So yeah. We do a lot of walking. In fact, we have walked in all the 48 contiguous states. We have walked in the sunshiney, we have walked in the snow, we have walked in the rain. And well, sometimes you get tired of waking. And then it’s back to the sleeping and eating and all that other stuff. Which is how things are supposed to be. But what happens when you can tell a million other people how to walk and where to walk, but you don’t feel like walking?

Yeah. We were tested the last few months with a lot of things going wrong. We lost people we loved, we had some disappointments happen. And we still aren’t thru the storm. In fact, we feel in a way that we are getting ready for a hurricane when the Big Blue Treat Wagon pulls out of here in less than two weeks. So we want to say we are sorry for not being able to walk as fast as we used to. And we realized that we were being pretty forgetful. To say the least. Positivity seemed liked a destination we would never find again.

Have you ever felt like you were just waiting for the sky to fall? That’s how we have been feeling. Because when the RV wants to act out, well, it’s really acting out. Boy Person can fix just about anything. But maybe sometimes you don’t want to fix things. You want the problems to not be there in the first place. And then you start feeling sorry for yourself. And that’s been us. The persons said that if in fact we are going on this next trip for Digby and I, they need to remember that. Because when you are doing something for someone else, even if it’s hard, if you love them, it’s worth it.

You don’t complain. You don’t look back. Because looking back is a waste of time. And it’s really hard to walk backwards.

Sure. We have some more work to do and repairs to make to get going and planning. But we aim to tell you next week where our route will take us and what this trip will be about. This is for me and Digby. We’ve had a rough year. Time marches on right across all of us.

By trying to encourage all of you, it keeps us motivated not to let you down. Not one of us has a perfect life. Yes. We would like things to be easier one day. But we will work with what we’ve got now and try to make the best decisions from today on. That’s all we can do. It’s time for us to walk the walk. To make the most out of this time we have, especially with Digby. We didn’t think we would have this time.

So let’s get moving. Packing. Preparing. We may have our not so positive days. But we promise that we will never go anywhere…except forward. However, if you see us on the side of the road, at least wave.

When You Don’t Know. And You Don’t Know. And You Don’t Know.

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. Here we go again. We’ve been here before. Our GPS keeps bringing us here. And well, the truth? It’s getting old. Older than the Big Blue Treat Wagon RV.

Sometimes I wonder if it’s better to keep getting lost but keep moving, or to just stay still and be mad about it. Yeah. Here’s the thing. We are mad at ourselves. We can’t always be strong because we make mistakes in life. Just like you. We’ve made bad decisions along the way. We’ve held on to hope for certain things that were not realistic. And yet, we keep doing the same things and ending up in nowhere. That’s the only place GPS can take us. Has your GPS taken you to the same place?

The persons were trying to plan our trip yesterday, but second guessing their decision to try. The Big Blue Treat Wagon RV was making it known there would be issues. And everything got foggy. What should we do about this one campground? They held off their decision and when they decided, it was gone. No reservation for us! Because once again they waited and that decision was taken from them. It was then they realized maybe they did want to go. And yet now, more options were getting limited.

When you think you know what you want in life, sometimes that is only the first battle. Because sometimes, you can’t have it. Reasons? The list goes on. But we work with what we’ve got! And the Big Blue Treat Wagon has done a great job!  So we keep pushing. Honestly, there are places we would like to settle to for some parts of the year. But it isn’t the time for that either. What do we do? I don’t know. I don’t know. And I don’t know. Welcome to our GPS.

The reason I tell you all of this? Because just like you, we don’t have life figured out. At all. We are stuck right now. We are down. But often, you have to acknowledge a problem to solve it.  You can’t keep driving away from it. Especially in the Big Blue Treat Wagon.  Because you may get stuck somewhere you don’t want to be.

We always try to be positive.  And I am not going to take all of this as negative. Because we are all growing in life. Just like Digby’s belly.

We are all trying.  You may not have the same problems we have.  We don’t have your problems.  But we all have something.  In fact, everyone on this earth has “something.” Do we show kindness, not knowing what they are going thru?

If you are stuck like us right now, let’s give ourselves permission to stop and think.  To weigh options, and to not be frightened of a wrong decision.  The persons say that travel is an amazing thing.  But it has its hardships too.  It’s tiring mentally and physically.  It is even scary sometimes. But we have all grown as individuals.  Now, it’s time to put what we have learned into actually going somewhere…in life.  Not just on the road. So thanks for letting me vent for everyone today. Tomorrow?  It may be another case of the I don’t know.  But I know we are going to try all over again.
