Looks like we are packing up next week and heading down to Austin, where we found a sweet campground RV park with lots of trees. The air is fresh, the rolling hills of the area offer magnificient views, and the people are supposed to be a lot friendlier in Austin. Overall, I believe this will be a good change for us.
We even got the biggest lot on the site (presumably they mean other than the manager's, since he had a pretty sweet setup) and it has a storage shed included on our lot. This will give us space to move most of our junk out of the house and finally get some work done. I may have to stick to hand saws to avoid disturbing the neighbors, and I may have to do my cutting inside, so the cats might be spending extra time locked in the bathroom, but I think I can finally build some rudimentary furniture.
I can't wait to get away from the cement plants in this town. If there is one thing wrong with Midlothian, TX, it is the cement plants polluting the air.
I also believe that the change in atmosphere should make it easier for us to stick to our preferred diets of raw foods. The warm weather should also help a lot, as I need to stay pretty active when eating raw. It sounds like we might even have some 'lawn space' of some sort, so maybe we can set up a little fire pit or at least a place for some outdoor chairs and a yoga mat or two.
Now now, don't want to get too optimistic yet... cross your fingers for us.
