Try Again?

After we decided yesterday to postpone our departure we brought a few things back down from the motor home to the house.  A little counterproductive, but we just got a few things that we needed.

The trouble is, all throughout the evening, we kept thinking of other things we needed.  We brought the coffee pot back down (we'd sold the rv coffee pot at a garage sale), but we forgot the coffee!  Then Al remembered his blood pressure pills.  We were able to find one in the house.  Then I realized I needed to take my contacts out....uh oh, the lens solution is in the motor home!

One thing we hadn't considered was the fact that we had "de-winterized" the motor home, thinking we would be leaving.  The only think we did was put some fresh water in the tank.  I had not turned on the faucets or flushed the toilet, so we think the lines are still full of anti-freeze.  Al drained the fresh water tank again, and we're hoping all is well.

Our Realtor called yesterday evening and said someone is showing the house this morning between 10 and 11 am. That's one way to get us up and moving quickly this morning!

 The Realtor for the young couple that was going to "make an offer on Tuesday", still thinks they are still going to make an offer.  That's fine...take your about April?  That would work well with our schedule!

I woke up about 3am today and my mind started racing thinking about what we were going to do today.  I decided to just get up so I'd have plenty of time to drink my coffee and read my blogs.  I need my coffee/blog time!

The two PITA's are up in the motorhome.  I hope they're warm enough.  Many people probably think we're crazy for putting up with them, but when we took them in it was for life.  They are actually good kitties, but they still have that fear deep inside them and that may never change.  Many feral cats lose that wildness pretty quickly, but some don't.  If we hadn't taken them in, they would both have certainly been dead long ago.  So when we take an animal, we commit to them, despite their flaws.

We think we'll be able to leave town fairly early today.  We hooked up the toad last night, so that's one more chore done.  We just need to wait for daylight to get started.  Wish us luck!


  1. Safe travels today and good luck with your house.

  2. Maybe today will be the day - should be a good day for traveling. Not too told this morning - 45, but the high is going to be 72, so come on down.

    Can you imagine how neat it is going to be some day when you move from one place to another...and you can't forget anything because everything you own will be in the motor home? It's pretty neat. Although sometimes when we leave our RV site I start wondering what I forgot...and then realize...nothing.

    Have a safe trip.

  3. I'm so glad you feel that way about your kitties. Too many people don't make that commitment when they get a pet. So glad you're headed towards nicer weather. Have a wonderful time.

  4. Good luck, even if you forget something, there's always a Wal-Mart around.

  5. Sounds like the extra morning proved usefull. I'd hate to think you had to turn around and come back to get something you forgot.

  6. Well, gee, I am in Ocala and it's NOT 72 degrees. Wondering where I need to go to get warm here! lOL Good luck on your travel day. I so understand about the kitties. It's good that people like you take in feral cats, but some never do get over their early trauma.

  7. So, hey, where are you? Oops, never mind, you are probably still asleep and haven't blogged yet this morning. I was up at 4:00 a.m. and thought everyone else must be up too...wrong.
