Moving out and on
As the house sale process moved forward, it began to sink in that the house might actually sell. It was time to get serious to move out. Tough decisions were needed on what was to be saved and what had to go-one way or the other.
The final sorting began and things began to go out the door. An impromptu lawn sale got under way, which in turn lead to folks looking at other things we decided had to go. Soon the house was nearly empty. The movers came and picked up the items we had decided to keep.
We looked over the things yet to be disposed of and we thought of one of our friends who could be thought of as a “collector” of various things. During the final stage of removal, we came to think of him and his team as “Sanford and Son” of TV fame.
So there was time for one last grass cutting and a final cleanup to make the place ready for the new owner. Sure enough, at the appointed hour all parties came together and we were no longer the owners of the house we called home for nine years.
That meant that we were finally full time RVers.
Our first trip as full timers was to join our club for a weekend of food and laughs with another similar club in the town of Bascom, Ohio. As always, a good time was had by all.
We are working on a plan of action as full timers, which will certainly include a visit to our Grandson and family who is growing up fast. Since we seen him last, just a few months ago, he has starting walking and discovering all kinds of new things.
There will be something different first; however, we are heading to the Netherlands for a visit with relatives and friends. We will hopefully be able to record this trip on this blog.
Life is about change and this will certainly be an interesting change.
