It's been a while since I've posted. I'm sorry, but it's winter. Welcome to the recent followers, Ken & Mia or trailercamper. They are in the Seattle area and are looking forward to a serious retirement trip in their future. (aren't we all?) Also welcome to Erik & Ronda or Erik'sRVBlog. Like us, they have a MH and want to fulltime some day. Both of these guys have very nice blogs that I plan to check in on once in a while. It's nice to see that there are so many people from different walks of life that have similar interests.
This has been a rough winter for the most part, but we finally have a beautiful weekend to do things! Guess who's sick...that's right...me. I never get sick so the few times that I do, well, I just act like a baby. I've got that crud that has been going around all winter. It's windy outside so it really messes up my sinuses even worse. I'm on night shift this month so I'll take it easy this weekend. I don't want to call in sick because I want every day to go towards my retirement.
One nice thing about working with a bunch of guys is that they have other talents. Many of them do construction type things on the side. One guy from work has a BiL that does all sorts of work at a reasonable price. I called him last week to get an estimate for getting the outside of the house cleaned up to put on the market early this summer. He'll power-wash the fence and house (it's brick), caulk and paint the window trim, and replace the screen on the back porch for a little under $1400. That's worth it to us. We have taken the screens off the windows but I need to clean up the bushes a little around the fence. We'll put the porch furniture in the garage while he's doing his thing. I guess now would be a good time to do some CraigsList stuff, but I can hardly breathe. We'll get things ready in a few days. He'll be here in a week. Boy we've got a lot to do!
Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life's journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.
