Surviving in Style

We've snuck off to Bull Run Regional Park Campground for the weekend.  It's nice to have the air conditioning and our soft bed to sleep in.  We feel sorry for the folks in tents, it has been really hot and humid.  We remember the days when that is exactly where we were.
We actually had a call from a realtor that wanted to show the house yesterday.  We think that's a good sign that our house is still in play on the market in our listed price range.  We dropped by today and took a quick look, we only live 9 miles from the campground and sure enough, there were footprints in our freshly vacuumed carpet.  No realtor business card left on the counter, though.  Usually there is.

Since I'm only "working" Thursday this week, actually cleaning out my desk, we extended our stay here through Wednesday.  It sure is nice being in our future full time home, we enjoy it so much.  Poor Marti still has to go to work yet, but the campground is close to her office too.

Who knows, if the bug hits us to stay longer, we might just do that, we need the practice. 

Thanks to you all for your encouraging comments and emails, that means the world to us. 

The air card is so slow tonight so no pictures, just pretend there are some there. ;c)

  4. We definitely are hoping that you get an offer really quick on the house. Bull Run really is a great place. We also stayed at the Trailer Village in Prince William Park. That was a great place also.

  5. I also have my house on the market. I got a chuckle from what you said. I vacuumed today before the open house and when I came home I looked to see where the footprints were. : )
    There has been 2 private showings of my place with no realtor card left.

  11. Now this seems like a plan to me.
    Just hang out in the journey until the thing sells and you'll feel at least sort of like you are on the road. You can go back every once in a while to check the footprints and remow ooppps re vaccuum the carpet! I like that picture of you both relaxing while the realtors sell your house.

  12. Paul and Marti, You two are so wonderful to me. You always say such loving things when you comment at A Camp Host's Meanderings. I am so happy and grateful to have you as friends. Have fun camping in comfort. You deserve it!
