We decided for sure that we are going camping today, but we're not sure exactly where. We're heading east and will be staying near the Suwanee River, where we'll get in some kayaking.
There are two Passport America parks that have very reasonable rates, and are only about 100 miles away. It's far enough to give the motor home a good running and there is a lot to do in that area. We're looking forward to a few days of playing.
If we were smart, we would stay home and continue with our purging/downsizing. Our Realtor said the Realtor for the potential buyers, said the "buyer" was going to make an offer towards the middle of the week. I'm not really sure what that means. If you're going to make an offer, why not just do it now? Is she still trying to decide between several homes? Is she just playing us? Is she working up the nerve to give us a low-ball offer?
I spent a pretty sleepless night Friday night thinking about what we would do if the house sells and we have to be out in a month or so. Could we do it? Where do we start? How do we get rid of all this stuff in such a short period of time? What do we do first? We've done well at our weekly garage sales and have gotten rid of a lot of stuff, but we still have a LOT more. I think the furniture will go pretty easily. It's nothing special and I don't need top dollar for it. No antiques or high end furniture. It's the little stuff that will be the most difficult. I still haven't started scanning photographs. I still need to go through paperwork and decide what is necessary to keep. I just don't want to start selling furniture until we have a contract.
The smart thing to do would be to just stay home this week and continue purging....but we've never been known to do the smart thing, so a camping we will go :)
Check out Ricks blog today about new technology. It was quite interesting. How do you feel about all the new high tech gadgets? I understand that it can be difficult for older people, like my mother, to operate many things today. I don't consider myself among the "older people." Those people are 10 years older than Al and I :)
