Since I was on a roll, I took one load of freezer items out to the rig and pulled in the slides. I even took the time to check the air in the tires, but since it's been so cold, and I know that makes a difference, I just left them alone. The Jeep was another story however. The last time I tried to take it to town, it gave me a low tire light. Funny how the RV tires rarely need air, but the Jeep requires it every couple of months in all four tires!!
People who enter the local hospital ER, never leave, so that's totally off the list. My only choice is to drive 45 minutes out of town. Even then, the cure usually brings on worse sinus problems, so I try to just suffer through. Eventually it will pass!!
I spent the rest of the day on the couch, all bundled up in front of the fireplace with the puppies. Jessie is a funny girl. Having come from a puppy mill, she doesn't know how to play, but occasionally she'll go get a toy and paw my arm until I throw it for her.
She growls something terrible, and if she gets her mouth on the toy, she doesn't let go so you can throw it again. The game is then to try and snatch it from her. She's a pretty funny old gal!!
In bored desperation around 4:00 I made a pan of brownies and one of the best grilled cheese sandwiches I've ever attempted. Naturally, I couldn't taste a thing!! The upside of having a cold and no taste buds is I don't crave sweets!! Too bad they can't bottle that!!
Finally all bundled up in my electric blanket in bed, I dozed off for the night. It didn't last long however. At 2:15 I awoke with a start!! RATS!! Dan told me the electric heat pump in the rig doesn't really work when the temperature is below 40. The heat pump is on and it's below 40!! I jumped up and ran outside, fumbled with the lights and ran to the back to check the temperature. 39 degrees inside. I moved the slide to gas heat, heard it spring to life and breathed a sigh of relief. Hopefully it hasn't been cold enough to break any water lines.
When I got back in the house, the dogs growled at me as I slid back in bed. Hey guys, now you know how I feel when YOU move around!!
Each day I cross a couple more things off my list towards lift off. Today I'll hook up the Jeep, then it's just a waiting game to see how I feel. At this point, it's looking pretty good!!
