Another Update on Full Time

Today we are officially 2 weeks away from closing the sale on the house. We have made great strides in getting ourselves setup next door in Beth's Mom's house temporarily. Beth has worked feverishly to try and make this house "livable" for us - and it shows. We have a few more things to clear out of the house and the garage has a section of items that Jeff will be migrating into the RV before we leave. Still awaiting all the parts to arrive to have the tow rig setup installed - hopefully soon.

The current plan has us doing some more cleanout this coming Saturday but we are going to take a well deserved break on Sunday and head over the Hard Rock Casino for some fun and games  - need the mental break for a little bit. 

The following weekend, before the house closing, we'll be bringing the RV down to the house from storage. Jeff has quite a list of items that will be done during that time to get Lucille II ready to go. Several small install items and a lot of re-arranging and packing. We also got new outdoor seating so we'll be purging the old stuff out of the under storage to make room. We also have some items that we have not used since getting the new rig, so that all is going to be removed. General rule of thumb, if we are not using it after a period of time - we get rid of it...there will be no hoarding with "hope" we might use something. This life is not for those that get attached to "stuff" 😝

A side note about two new storage updates...Space is always at a premium so anything that can help is valuable. Jeff got over the door shoe pouches and has cut off just the top row (enough for 4 pair). We will be hanging that on the bed platform edge after we lift the mattress. The overhang of the mattress board will keep them out of the way and off the floor (and out of the  closet). We should be able to to have 4 of them, so 16 pairs if needed. Second, As we were clearing out Beth's Mom's house, we came across two Rubbermaid "wreath" boxes. These are only about 24 inches x 24 inches and 6 inches high, with a lid. We have come to find out they fit perfectly in one of our pass-thru under storage areas. Since these have nice fitting lids, we will store extra paper products (paper towels, toilet paper, etc) and other items we see fit. It clears up space in the main coach. 

Although things are moving at a fairly fast pace, it is more anticipatory than stressful - but it is physically tiring. We will be making the move to do what we have been talking about for several years - albeit a bit sooner than expected. The reality in many ways is still to set in....but it will...if nothing else when we hook the jeep up to the tow rig and start driving north to Suwannee River Rendezvous RV park....😃
