Canned Hammin' It!

Finally!  We did it!  We bought a 1966 Fan Camper and we are ecstatic which is actually an understatement.  It should arrive from Michigan on Friday morning.  It's ready to go other than putting our own spin on it.  It's the cutest thing I've ever seen so cute.  It sleeps our little family of four plus Fiona.  I bought this book a few weeks ago and to my surprise I opened it up and saw a similar little camper.  Ours is the exact same color!  Now we can take her out west with us and see so much more ;) I'll post some photos when we get her finished.

a funk.

funk 1 |fÉ™ ng k| informalnoun(also blue funk) [in sing. a state of depression I sat absorbed in my own blue funk.• chiefly Brit. a state of great fear or panic are you in a blue funk about running out of things to say?

Yep, that pretty much sums up me lately, BUT things they are a changin'...I hope.  Sometimes funks happen and it stinks but my lack of motivation has given me a lot of time to think about things and about what's really important.  I deleted a bunch of blogs from my reading list b/c I realized that I was spending waaay too much time on that kind of nonsense and it really wasn't helping my state of mind.  I plan on tidying things up around here and maybe going private and spiffing up my photo blog and making that more of the public space.  Not sure.  Undecided (which is a funk induced side effect).  I love having this place to record memories and then print it out in book form each year.  We'll see :)  
Blogger changed there interface and this new one is making my head spin!  Anyone else?  I am such a creature of habit.
This food allergy thing we have been dealing with has been interesting and a tad bit stressful but we're managing.  We've also been flirting with the idea of eating a vegan diet, which really is about 70% of our diet anyways.  But then I crave a bun less hamburger and it's all over.   Darn you Kind Diet!  Now I have anxiety when I eat my bun less hamburger!
About 2 weeks ago we got back from Gulf Shores and spent the first part of the vacation smack dap middle in Tropical Storm Lee.  You better believe we were the dummies out there in it yelling look at me as the wind almost knocked us down.  It was awesome.  It was not awesome getting woken at 3am to sirens and a voice saying "Attention!  Attention! Attention!  An emergency has been reported.  Please evacuate and do not use the elevators".  Yeah, not fun.  We are sheep though so we evacuated for a bit and we are still alive.  YAY!  It was also so cool that we were on the 14th floor of the condo and the light fixture was swaying.  Lots of wind.  Lots and lots of wind.  We did manage to have about 4 days on the beach and the waves were great.  The husbands surfed (not mine) and we basked in the sunshine and boogie boarded until our hearts content.
So, soonI hope to get this blog thing figured out :)  Have a great weekend!
