Hoping for a commission this week

I am an artist.  I sell my work on the internet thru my web page.  Sales have been a bit sporadic for the last year or so.  Instead of a backlog of work, I've had weeks without any new orders.   When this happens I tend to get into a "Nobody will every buy anything again..." mode.

This mornings email brought an inquire from an Advertising Agency in Texas about a possible order for 4 Llamas.  I try not to count on any sale until the Credit Card clears, but I'm ready to get back to work.

Four Llamas, will pay one month of my Health Insurance premium.

On another front, I have been watching for information on any Big RV shows in our area.  There was one in January, but I was out of town.

 I've been running a Google check from time to time with no results.  A couple of days ago I found out about a big ten day show coming up in May.  It is about an hour away, but I do expect to go a couple of times.  I have so much research about what kid of rig we want in the long run.

 I do not feel I am ready to talk to any dealers yet.  I don't want to waste any salesmen's time.  But thats what they are at the shows for.

My daily progress:

589  days, or 1 year, 7 months, 9 days to go.  

Exercise Goal:  1000 miles on the treadmill
       to get into shape for long hikes in the National parks!
             2 miles today  985 to go

To Trash:  One bag of odds and ends
To Goodwill: One bag of clothes
To Flea Market table:
  • 2 large boxes of wonderful pine cones
  • A new set of BBQ tools 


  1. Hi, Merikay-got your message; don't know why the email didn't work. Thanks for the support - it's nice to know that I'll be able to find some like-minded folks in the full-timing community! Maybe we'll be hitting the road at the same time, though I'm shooting for 2011 if I can at all make it. I look forward to our shared experience of getting ready. Isn't it exciting?!

  2. You are going to need your BBQ tools on the road!
    RVers cook outside a lot.
