So, we had the heart break of - yet again - saying good bye to the kids/grandkids. (does it get any sadder than when a grandchild get sad, and sighs saying: "I'm gonna miss you - when are you coming back?") We drove past the campground less than 2 miles from their house, that will allow us to easily visit/be nearby for extended periods of time. These 1000 mile weekend trips are not getting any easier!. (emotionally or physically) We enjoyed the trip home, I must admit, chatting and planning about the days we can travel 100-200 miles a day, and actually ENJOY the travelling!
Tonight we had our realtor/friends stop by to do a preliminary walk through, get their feedback and their suggestions. Wow - yeah, you full-timers have told us to weed out, get rid of etc. My daughter, who sold her house in less than 30 days this year, said the same thing. But the heart break begins as we get-rid-of-everything phase, in preparation for full timing. Basically to sell the house, all walls have to be bare, and white. Wow! That is a heart break, as we will be living here for the next year - yes weeding out, emptying out, and neutralizing e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g.
Wow. And thus it begins.... trying to look ahead - it seems so far away, yet there is so much to do! Yikes!
