Spending the night in the Clubhouse !!!

Gonna spend the night in the Clubhouse tonight. Woooo Hoooo!!!!! I can hardly wait until dark, and the kids go to bed too. We have company coming tommorrow night and we ( I ) thought I should give it a trial run before then. (If they come I will be spending tommorrow there too.) So tonight I spend in solitude. Spent a few hours in there last night, until about 12, and man was it great. No tv's screaming at me, no phone ringing over and over, just the thing I desire most in life, peace. I read a little and straightend up some of the stuff that I had in the closet in the house that I moved down there. It was really relaxing. I laid on the bed for a few just to try it out and Smokie Bear lie in the floor looking as content as I was. I wonder if his thoughts drift away like mine, when I closed my eyes I was a thousnd miles away. I could imagine myself (Bear Dog too) in a cabin on a knoll just about a river full of hungry trout waiting for us to arise in the morn. The only sound I could hear was that of the bugs of summer and the croak of the frogs in the pond. If only for a short while I was transported to a far away dream land where I was a true man of the mountians. Needless to say, the Clubhouse is good for me and for those have to try to cope with living with me. I hope that my time in the Clubhouse will make life eaiser for all of us. Talk to you all tommorrow, that is if I wake from my dreams.....

Sounds like YOU need a vacation! That was a whirlwind of activity and you're already sleeping in there. Everyone needs a little solitude now and then.

It's more intense when one is around the house 24/7, isn't it? I desire peace in life more than anything else too.

I think the Cave makes me a better, more "normal" person, without killing the weirdness within. Hope the same for you, bro. I'm a little envious that you are actually camping in yours though. :)

Well, at least you won't have to fire up the woodstove if it's as hot there as it is here. I don't recall seeing a fan in any of your pictures... :) Sounds like an adventure!

Nita, you just can't imagine how much. Peace is pretty hard to find when you have a 2 year old that thinks daddy hung the moon.

Ron, Intense, now that's the word I was looking for. lol The Clubhouse is the best thing for me right now. Stressed out!!

Marie, I would like to find a DC or solar fan for sure. Last night didn't need one though. I was looking for another quilt around 12, chilly.

Gen, thanks, it was a good night and the lights worked very well. They say 2 hours on a full charge but mine was going strong after 3hrs. when I turned them out.
