No Way to Keep House

Look at this mess!

This is what our RV looked like most of the day Monday. Can you guess what was going on? Look at the pleated fabric and all that string. And consider the canned goods on the floor.

One of our day-night shades had a broken string, meaning it didn't go up and down. I restrung one on a window on the end of the slide a couple of years ago. This one was even more difficult. It has 4 strings, not two. With the help of info on the the web and from John, I got the job done, after several house of work.

But that doesn't explain the canned goods. Remember last summer when shelves in the canned good cabinet, as well as a pan drawer, broke as we drove to Alaska? Well, that cabinet shelf broke again. So John had to re-glue it.

Our RV doesn't have a lot of space to move around in. To do this kind of work, we have to spread out on the floor. It certainly makes life difficult. It was good when we could put everything away.


  1. Ugh! We did the blind restringing a couple months ago. Not that hard, but very time consuming. There is always some little thing breaking and needing repairs!

  2. If we had only known . . . We PAID to have one restrung!

  3. Well Congrats. I restrung one also. Quite a sense of accomplishment when it's done. Not really that bad if you do take your time. The shelf, another story. I think we are going to try to go real light on the packing when we go on rough roads. Headed into Palatki Heritage site in August, may EMPTY the cabinets.

  4. Restringing a blind is not an easy task! Kudos to you both!
