We're Getting Anxious

Maybe it's because of our successful camping trip last month with all the kitties.  Maybe it's because I have been reading a lot of blogs where people are traveling all over the country.  Whatever it is, we're both getting anxious to hit the road and start our fulltiming life.

We've been trying to do something each day in preparation for putting the house on the market.  Today, we stopped by a newly opened consignment shop and found out how it works.  They sell our items, and we split it 50/50.  Sounds like a good deal to me.  All we have to do it load it up and bring it down.  We price the items together.  We brought some clothes, lamps, lead crystal, table cloths, some cd alarm clock radios and some other miscellaneous items.  We tried  to price it cheap enough so that it would sell.  I sure don't want to be hauling it all back home :)

Another project was to get an appliance serviceman out to look at our just out of warranty dishwasher.  This is the second Whirlpool appliance we've had recently that malfunctioned way too early.  We used to always swear by Whirlpool, but I think we've changed our minds.  Their quality doesn't seem to be as good as it used to be.

We have some outside painting to do.  We couldn't do it last summer, because it was too hot.  We somehow missed Fall, and of course it was too cold in the winter.  So guess's summer again.

Tomorrow is another day.

  1. I sure wish I had taken things to the consignment shop - a few dollars here and there would have been much better than giving away so many things.

    The USA will still be out here waiting for you...don't stress will all fall in place in time.
