We left Florida and had a few neat experiences.
It was part of our plan from the beginning that we would do our very best to save all the money we "made" on the sale of the house for the purchase of our new place in Texas. One way we planned to save money was by living out of our van during the move and subsequent search for our place. Some folks believed it would take us a long time to find what we were looking for... but I knew with a sure 'knowing' that we would find it very quickly and since we were buying with cash, we'd move onto our land more quickly than anyone could imagine.
As it happened, I was completely correct. Yet, even though we found our land super fast and closed unbelievably quickly, we still ended up living in our van for almost three months. Thankfully the van's rear seat reclined into a bed of sorts... It was big enough for me and the baby, EmJ, at least. I'll tell you the rest of the story of how we slept next time.
We did it for almost three months. It was probably the worst best experience of my life. You know those, right? The really bad experiences that teach you so much that you have to qualify them as good in some way, shape, or form.
