My brother Steve brought Mom for one last visit. Mom has always loved our place and hates that we’re selling it. They only could spend one night, but we had a really nice visit. We sat outside by the motorhome Saturday evening. It felt like we were at a campground and that felt very, very nice. We put two fans on us to keep us cool and keep the gnats away. Steve and Al drank too many beers and I drank too much wine. We had a very nice visit and didn’t go in until after 11 pm.
Our Saturday garage sale was almost a bust, but we did manage to sell our hydraulic lift table so we felt good about that. We ended up with only $46 in sales. The holiday week-end must have been the problem.
The lady came to pick up the bedroom set yesterday, so that’s one more larger item gone.
We’ve been working on all the small stuff and that’s getting discouraging. It seems like it never ends. We’re hoping the closing will still be on Thursday, but we’re waiting for the “okay to close”, from the underwriter. I sure hope it doesn’t drag out past Thursday.
We still haven’t decided exactly where we want to go after we leave here. We’ve about decided against the beach which is southwest of us. We will play it by ear and see how we feel when the time comes. We are the type of people that like to just go where the road takes us, and not make a lot of plans. I guess we’ll see.
It’s been extremely hot and humid during the day which makes it very difficult to work outside. The evenings are still cool enough to keep the windows open and the a/c off at night. That will probably change once we head south.
Happy Memorial Day and thanks to all of our service members and their family (past and present) for your service!
