Learning to Not Get Overwhelmed

These past few days have been a whirlwind. We drove, in less than 2 days, from North Carolina to Texas after an eventful but short stay in Asheville, NC. We’ve been here in Texas for a few days in a state park, parked across from the Nouveaux Honkies, a music duo comprised of a high school friend I haven’t seen in 20 years and her hubby! Crazy how this meandering RV life brings people together!!

I’ve had such interesting and funny stories to blog about but have been so busy, tired and stuck to know where to begin to write. So I signed up for Blogging 101. I hope taking this month long online course will teach me how to write better and make your reading of our adventures more interesting!

As many of you already know, we recently began living full-time in our camper, moving around the US. Mike owns a computer software and consulting company. I am his sales and marketing “department” and we are traveling around, calling on customers and experiencing the great American outdoors at the same time.

So far (a whopping two weeks) it’s been great running, hiking, biking through parks. Experiencing new towns and people. A bit stressful – trying to learn to live on the road in a camper with a dog and a cat – but we’re making it! My previous corner office has nothing on a camp chair, laptop on my lap, sitting under the tree shade with a light breeze rustling my hair.

I haven’t been blogging regularly since we started because, I won’t lie, I’ve been completely overwhelmed. By traveling, by trying to live in a confined space, by having our plans constantly changing, by the thought of having to write it out for everyone. I want to share. But I get exhausted just thinking about trying to relay the stories again. Hopefully life will settle down and with the help of this course I will learned to not get overwhelmed and we will all have fun!

  1. Handle the things within your control and don’t sweat the things BEYOND your control. Y’all have a handle on this. The blog is for FUN not STRESS.

  2. Yay Blogging 101! I’ve been desperate for some Mike/Julie adventure stories.

    Just enjoy everything!! You guys have so so much to experience. And really, you’ve all made it longer than we thought anyway 🙂
