Eight Days!

Unbelievably hectic. Friends have been dropping by to pick up the items that they bought from our sale. One week ago today, I sent to friends that live locally, an email with a link to pictures of the things we were plannig to sell. I put sticky notes with a price on items that we didn't plan to store nor take with us on our new adventures. Folks started coming by and scooped up almost everything! It was awesome. We even sold our truck and car!

Our new truck and RV are on order, and we will live in our little Winnebago until the new fifth wheel comes in. We have been enjoying our friends coming by and picking-up their new purchases (free movers!). When we come back to visit, we can see our stuff at our friends houses! We had our local auction company pick up things that didn't sell, our dining table and chairs (lovingly covered with organic fair-trade coffee bean burlap bags), an antique sideboard, a few Persian rugs, and a couple of side tables. This weekend, it's more packing, and next weekend, we are outta' here!

It has been a little sad, looking around at the "stuff" that we have accumulated, knowing that it is now in the past. But, we remind ourselves of the good times ahead, collecting memories of adventures instead of stuff! 

Happy Trails,

I so wish I was there. Instead I'm about a year or so away, but our time will come!

Merikay, I hope you are able to sell your house as quick as we did. It has been a whirlwind....and wish we could fast-forward about 6 weeks! But, we have enjoyed visiting with our friends!

Sue and Doug....Exciting and a little bittersweet. I think I am ready to separate myself from it - out of sight, out of mind!

It is exciting to get a new home. I will definitely post pix when it arrives. For now, it is sort, pack, donate, sell, recycle, and trash....whew!
