365 Project: The remote life

To say that the last few weeks have been overwhelming would be an understatement. Jason starting a new job, us adjusting to me being on my own with the kids while he works, starting a new year of homeschool, getting back on the road, landing at my moms house, the corona virus, it’s just been a lot. But I’m consistently making an effort to see some positives: his job was already fully remote and secure for now. They put a freeze on hiring just 5 days after he started…whew! (((I have so many feelings for our friends struggling financially right now, we know. Please know we get it. ))) We love his schedule. So far we’ve been able to piece together meals that are safe for us at the local grocery store. I think it’ll get easier now that they closed the beaches – all the spring breakers will leave (it’s been packed here with people on vacation – ugh). We still have a few rolls of toilet paper. Being quarantined isn’t so bad since my mom has a 2,000 square foot wrap around porch for the kids to play on. Plus an artist workshop filled with enough supplies to last! My kids have paint on every article of clothing they own but they are so happy about that. We landed in just the right place to ride all this out, I’m so thankful we are here. Like everyone else, we are just taking it all day by day, one at a time.

Vlog: Adventures in Acadia National Park Part 2

 

Follow along as these night owls attempt a very early morning rise to see the first rays of light on the eastern seaboard on Cadillac Mountain. Did we all make it? Spoiler: one of us did NOT! We also see Thunder Hole, hike Jordon Pond / The Bubbles and drive over to the Schoodic Peninsula. Oh! And there was a run in with a raccoon and a bald eagle! Lots to see in this final video about our time in Acadia National Park!

365 Project: Moochdocking

We fit!  We took a big chance and guessed that we *might* fit in my mom’s driveway for a free stay.  It was a risk because there are literally no open RV spots available right now in this cute little beach town.  We added a 50 amp hookup to the area near her driveway and she had a few branches on the trees trimmed down.  That was a good move because we wouldn’t have fit otherwise!  So, for the next few weeks we will mooch some electricity and water in her driveway!  It’s such a great setup for us and we are super thankful for her hospitality.
