Days seem a bit longer now. We have our house picked out, but paperwork is being drawn up so slowly. Friday seems a month away just because I know it’s coming soon but I can do nothing to speed it up. Perhaps it is exacerbated by the rain, which I am not complaining about because we need it, but it keeps us locked up.
So, perhaps now is the time to reflect on life in a bus as it will be over all too soon. Our family of four and two dogs will have lived 11 months in a 1998 Prevost bus starting in September of 2011.
These are the ten best things about living in a bus in no certain order.
1. It’s easy to clean! Less space means less time cleaning.
2. The boys have some awesome fort areas in bunks and only two toy totes.
3. I can tell people I live in a bus which always generates lively conversation.
4. Gifts have not been “things” but rather time spent together doing fun “things.”
5. I know we can live with less, because we have.
6. We got to try living in Nashville, before purchasing property and being unsure about it.
7. We have become better conservationists of water. A tank in the bus will empty rather quickly for four people.
8. When we want to travel, we literally have everything we need with us without packing.
9. Weekends have been spent together, out and about. We have had no mowing, no honey do lists.
