Busy and …

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.

Woohoo!!!! Congratulations! The only thing better than popping the cork on that bottle Jan 6th would be popping it with you guys! BUT, we are so happy for you that we'll suck it up and drink that bottle without you :)

Fantastic news! Now, if we could just get Bill & Nancy's sold!

Alrighty...this is great news. Now that there are 2 less homes on the market...our house will have to sell soon;o))

Really, everytime I see you have a new post, I think "This is the HOUSE SOLD post!!" This time it really was:o))))))

The emotions are justified and are part of the journey. Any change, good or bad, is difficult.

Will we still be seeing you at Huntington?? I would imagine that plan is still a go since you are now "HOUSELESS!!!"

Well, we can't be far behind. You know that they say things come in threes. Two down and One to GO;o)))

Happy Thanksgiving......

Congratulations Gin and Syl! Ronnie and I are very happy and excited for you both. I have been following you blog for over a year now and to see you reach your fulltime RV goal wonderful. Since we live near you, learning your steps and decisions have been helpful as we try to reach this goal someday too. We will be thinking of you, continue to follow your blog and wish for you the safest of travels. One day, I hope we can meet down the road...maybe even at the Cedar Point Campground! Again, congratulations!

YEE HAW!!! Wonderful news!!!

We are so happy for you. :c)

Now since things come in threes, and we've sold our house and you've sold yours, now it's Nancy and Bill's turn.

Can't wait to see you on the road and have some time to really visit with y'all.

Gin and Syl said...

Thanks to everyone for your support. Go ahead and celebrate! Our plans for Huntington Beach are still unchanged. We haven't made any reservations past Christmas because we didn't know what to expect this year. We may be looking for a new rig. :) Wanda is great but not really a four season rig.
