The transition is nearing an end.  We've spent the last three nights in the trailer and are finishing the clean-up at the house.  I just posted 10 free items on Craigslist and they were all gone within an hour.  Magical.  There is still lots to do and tomorrow morning is our last chance to finish it all, but I wanted to check in while I have a chance with some internet access.

Amazingly, everyone slept through the night, two out of three nights!  It sure is happily cozy, and for those wondering if I was able to stuff all my appliances into the trailer, I was successful.  Oh yes.

The grand trailer tour is in the making; getting things cleaned and settled first seemed ideal.  But here are a few snippets from the first few days:

Here we are, doing school.  It was raining, but most of the time we'll be outside, sitting on patio chairs, enjoying the fresh air while we tend to our studies.
Things might be busy, but there's always time for a quick cuddle and a picture book.
It's hard to see from this picture (um, and I have dusted the sill since this picture was taken.  Yikes.), but if you look past the electric pole, we have a great view of trains trudging through the forest that captures 23-month-old's attention a few times daily.
All I can say, no matter how strange and temporary it may be, it feels like home, and we are all peculiarly happy about it.


  1. you have greatly inspired me! my husband and i are paying off debt right now and thinking about buying a house when that it done with. after reading a bit of your journey we are tentatively looking into this trailer idea. it would have to be a little down the road given our lease. i've lived in a trailer briefly so i have an idea of what to expect. we shall see....

  2. That's awesome about getting out of debt! It's so freeing, it even made living in the trailer satisfying because we could just *feel* the debt melting off; especially on the first of the month, when rent/mortgage is usually due. :)

  3. My spouse and I stumbled over here coming from a different
    website and thought I may as well check things out. I like what I see
    so i am just following you. Look forward to exploring your web page again.

    Here is my webpage ::

  4. What i do not realize is actually how you are now not really much more
    smartly-favored than you might be right now. You're very intelligent. You recognize thus significantly in relation to this topic, made me personally consider it from so many varied angles. Its like women and men don't seem to be interested until it's one thing to do with Girl gaga! Your individual stuffs great. At all times take care of it up!
