Rocky Mount, NC
Boy have we been busy the past few days getting things cleaned up at the new house and boxing up the kitchen stuff for Gin’s folks!! Thankfully Gin’s cousin Pam came over this weekend to help too. Monday the movers come and Tuesday will be the antique dealers turn to pick up some very nice furniture and things. I sure am glad that we didn’t have so much stuff to get rid of at our house. We had three yard sales in a couple of years so last week was a piece of cake.
It really was a good felling to empty out our house. We knew there were two couples that were interested in buying it and one of them finally made an offer a few days ago. Of course it was way too low. The other couple wasn’t ready to commit so we went back and forth a bit with the others. They finally brought their offer up enough for us to say “It’s a deal!”. I must admit that I’ve had more emotions than I thought I would. I think that has a lot to do with having recently lost Smudge. I’m still missing her.
We will have a few things to do in the next few weeks to make the final steps to being full-timers. There’s the mail forwarding company to choose and insurance company for full-time coverage. We'll probably change banks in the future since we will no longer be NC residents also. I’m sure we’ll forget something but I don’t feel and pressure or panic. Gail and Rick can plan to enjoy another bottle of wine on January 6 when we are planning to close on the house. I’m sure they have one ready for Paul and Marti’s closing and Bill and Nancy’s will be in the near future (fingers crossed my friends).
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.
