Spa Day

I am used to my ‘hobo shower’ (or what I have heard another van dweller refer to as a ‘whores bath’) which is just washing up with soap and water in the van sink or with baby wipes. Today though we treated ourselves (me and my boyfriend Brian) to a Flying J truck stop shower which is like a spa for us. The truck drivers earn points for free showers when they buy gas at Flying J truck stops. When we went to pay for our showers a truck driver offered to redeem his points to give us free showers. A truck driver behind me in line said they earn a lot of shower points that they can’t use them all. I thought is was pretty nice of the truck driver to redeem his points for our showers. They are usually $12 and really nice. It has been a month since I’ve had a nice hot shower and a week since I washed my hair. My hair doesn’t get as oily as it used to because I don’t strip the natural oil from it every day with shampoo. I usually have to wash my hair every 4 to 5 days in the van sink but I put baking soda on the oily parts of my hair on the 4th day this time so I could wait longer to wash it, which worked. We are camped out at a Walmart parking lot in Fort Stockton, Texas right now. I need to get a lot of work done in the morning so my office is going to be in the Walmart parking lot. My office and my home is where I park it😄.
