Hello everyone, it if Friday, 2 days after my surgery. I am doing as well as expected and looking forward to getting through the next several days of recovery. After my last surgery, once the catheter was removed, I experienced some difficult nights. I actually wrote a post about those nights but never did publish it. That post was very personal and I was not sure if you the readers wanted to read it. It may be too much – TMI! Will see if I experience the same this time around and if I publish that post or not.
Let’s get caught up on the other important events taking place. The house appraisal was completed a little over a week ago and the results were all good.
The home sale continues to proceed without issues and we are still on the calendar to close on August 2nd. Gary and I continue to downsize possessions while we also have administrative duties taking place such as updating address on all our accounts. In 2 weeks a PODS container will be delivered and parked in our driveway. The PODS container will be packed with items and possessions we are keeping for our future home. Once the PODS container is filled, it will be picked up and stored locally here in the Dallas area until we are ready for it.
Last Friday, we officially bought our RV for our future travel adventure. Our plan is to take possession of the RV Friday of next week at which time we will move it from the current site which is where we bought it to a RV park owned by the RV Dealership.
We plan to stay in the RV for a night to become accustomed to our new living arrangement. We also would like to take a couple of short nearby trips in the month of July to become comfortable with towing, setup and breakdown of the RV. While we wait for August 2 and while not using the RV, it will be parked at a storage site owned by the RV Dealership.
The big day is 32 days away. These next 32 days will pass quickly and we have many more things to accomplish. Downsizing continues to take place. Learning to drive with and live in an RV is taking place.
Planning our future travel adventure continues to take place. And a course we continue to maintain a home while we are still here.
But first, several more days to recover and several more days to experience some discomfort. Even though today, I am uncomfortable I know it will be gone soon. I look forward to the next 32 days because this is the time the real transition takes place. All the planning, all the activities and all the results of our efforts will be coming to a conclusion soon.
Exciting times ahead – this I look forward to.
