Closing Date Scheduled

We’ve been busy so I’ve neglected posting to my blog.

Last week-end we had a Saturday garage sale and managed to sell a few of the remaining larger items.  We ended up $730 richer, and some very big bulky items gone!

We are having some work done on the foundation today.  Once that is inspected and passes we are hoping there are no more delays.  They’ve scheduled a closing date for Thursday, June 2nd.

We’re requesting that the sellers allow us 48 hours after closing to vacate the rv site and garage.  This will give us a bit of extra time in case we have any issues selling the mowers or washer and dryer. 

We have a buyer for the big zero turn mower, the golf cart and the bedroom set.  We’re pretty comfortable these buyers will come through, but until we close, we’re not parting with them.

The only other things are the big desk and washer and dryer.

We’re still trying to clean out the house, garage and sheds.  It’s amazing how much little stuff that is too good to toss and takes up too much space to bring.  We’ve found a few people that want all our junk, so that’s what we’re doing.

Carol is right….this job is not for sissies!


  1. That's great news. Looks like you're still doing well on your garage sales as well.

  2. Yahoo! The time to move on is almost here. :)

  3. We knew you were covered up with "chores" and now a final closing date - Yippee!

  4. Wonderful, wonderful! It sounds like even though it was a bit delayed, the timing really worked in your favor. You had time to get rid of most everything.

  5. Glad to hear that things are rolling again. Getting rid of the last big stuff is all about the timing. We are planning to list our house next week. Got our fingers crossed.

  6. YAY!! You have a closing date! That is great news. You guys have done very well with all your sales. Now the departure moment is almost here.

  7. Terrific news! Are you nervous? The big day is almost here now. Can you believe it is finally going to become a reality - full-timing!

    Seems like everything is working out very well. Hope it all continues to go well. You'll probably be heading to Florida when we will be heading up through Georgia.

  8. soon all these garage sales and cleaning and purging will be but a distant memory!!

  9. Now you can see the light at the end of the tunnel.....AND it's NOT a train's headlight! :-)

  10. That is awesome. These next days will be crazy but now you have a date for that light at the end of the tunnel! And it is so true , this is not for sissies! Soon you will be out on the road and can take some time to kick back and relax. Yea!!
