“All I can say is… I had no clue what I was in for when I decide to sell my 5-bedroom house with a huge backyard, move into a tiny freaking travel trailer with my family and 3 dogs. Two of which are full-size Dobermans. Like seriously? What in the heck was I thinking…”

This first month has been a serious transition and not at all what I thought it was going to be. The above statement is what I fou nd myself saying often..especially when I chose to focus on all of the negatives we were experiencing.

I have really started to feel a lot better this week about our situation. Maybe it’s because we are establishing a new routine? I definitely don’t regret this decision because we are #debtfree! Never thought I would be able to say that since the moment my first credit card arrived in the mail 3 weeks after my 18th birthday. Also, I get to spend 24/7 with my children. That may seem like hell for many parents (trust me I have heard people say this) but I love my kids. I love homeschooling them. I love going to the park in the middle of the day while everyone else works and other kids are in school. I love midday piano lessons.

All this is possible because we gave up societies version of the ‘American Dream’.

It’s been tough, but we are tougher! Next update is in 6 months.
