It’s been raining a LOT, and it’s getting very tiresome. We’re not used to being indoors so much, and the cold, soggy weather is grating on our nerves. It’s also making anything that involves being outdoors, such as laundry, shopping, etc., all the more difficult. That’s not even counting “Lake Frontyard” in front of the trailer.
How do people cope with close quarters in areas that have long, miserable winters? I have no idea! I don’t have “small” hobbies, they all require space, so I normally do the “big” part outdoors…and what fun is that in the rain? I cannot figure out how to do crafts, sew, or a million other things in the travel trailer. The dinette has become “perma-desk” and we don’t even eat at it. The sofa was taken out when we first moved in, due to it being dirty and damaged. In its place, we have a shelf unit and a stack of boxes…and a cat litter bucket & a folding camp chair. That’s our “indoor” furniture for “lounging.” Obviously, we don’t do much of it!
We still have plans on doing some modifications to the trailer, but it can’t happen all at once, due to everything from dealing with life, weather, and budgetary concerns. We also don’t want to make changes we regret, like the small refrigerator we opted for. We have to stay positive, and regard our period excursions into misery as an exercise in realistic interior design issues for our small space.
Tell me that again after three days of cold rain with gusts of icy wind, right?
