Ok, not so much for the hubby. . . a few minutes ago I pulled into the driveway from a stressful, long day at work.  James was on his way to the gym and looked suspicious.  “What’s going on?” I inquire.  “Nothing, gotta go”.  Hmmm. “By the way, I tinted the windows today” he says.  I look at the travel trailer, the other vehicle.  Uh oh.

He means the house trailer.  Yep, there it is. Tinted windows.  Ok, so we don’t live in the ritziest neighborhood so I don’t want the trailer to look as good as it does inside – kind of a deterrent you know.  But this isn’t exactly what I had in mind.  I of course wrinkle my nose and immediately notice the bubbles and he stomps off to go work off his frustrations with me.

He did this, he says for “energy efficiency”.  This is the boy who leaves all of the lights on when he leaves the house and the cooler cranked down to 65 degrees.  I come home to a lit up house, music blaring  and frozen chihuahuas.  Oh, and our bill is still only around 35.00 in the summer.  Soooooo.  Why he decided to do this today, I’m not sure.  But I decide to accept the fact that I now have a home with tinted windows.  I mean people have much bigger problems than a tacky house right?

As I sit, finally getting a moment to myself, I glance up at the windows and this is what I see.


Poor guy.  He tried so hard to save the earth today and this is what he gets.  You know, it really didn’t look that bad.  I wish I could fix it, but I have a glass of wine and a post to finish 🙂

Somehow I ended up in a single-wide trailer, in Reno, Nevada. And somehow I love it. Here is where I tell my story about my trailer, and my passion for small space living, photography, travelling, and running.
