Things are moving into high gear now. The closing date is growing closer and we're hustling to get things done. I already killed one paper shredder and I keep overheating the new one I bought, it has an auto shutdown feature which takes 30 minutes to reset. That slows down progress. (Grrr!)
I had to start the day by running down to my Honda dealer, the battery on the Element started acting (actually not acting) up and barely cranking the engine over since the cooler weather has hit. It also needed an oil change, a transmission fluid change, a brake fluid change which I was going to do next week, but got it all done today, plus an alignment and tire rotation. I want to have everything done when we hit the road in about 20 days.
Spent a good amount of time in between shredder shut downs going through my closet again, weeding out even more clothes to send to the Salvation Army. Never realized I had so many T-shirts. Plus I've been playing phone tag with a few insurance agents to get our vehicles insured in South Dakota.
Tomorrow the estate sale folks come to start setting up the house for this weekend's sale. We don't feel like we're ready but we'll rely on their expertise to get it done. We're going to dedicate our front den room as the last to be set up so we can stack the items that are going into the Journey so we can get them out of their way. Wednesday I'll bring the Journey over from the storage lot so we can load (stuff) it and then Thursday we're starting our two week stay at the Bull Run Regional Park campground.
The biggy is Friday Marti has to have an operation on her eye to correct a minor issue before it becomes a bad problem later in life. Originally the surgery was scheduled for last month but there was an overbooking of the operating room so it got pushed back to this Friday. She'll be off all next week to recuperate. Hopefully she'll not have any post surgery issues because we're taking a load of furniture to daughter Heather's house in a rental truck next Tuesday. She'll have to follow down in our car so we have a way home (to the Journey). We'll spend Thanksgiving with Heather, Brian and the boys before coming home for Marti's last week of work.
All the chaos is a bit daunting (read downright scary) but we're sure it will all work out well.
When it's all done, we'll be out on the road and look at each other and realize there is nothing left to do... it'll be a great feeling.
