Holding Our Own

Busted some butt today working with the estate sale folks getting things set up for this weekend's sale.  I had two workers with me today moving and shaking things up.  I felt a bit like a ping pong ball as I was trying to get things I needed to do done and each one kept asking me questions:  "What about this?" or "Is this for sale", etc, etc, etc.  It really slowed down my work.  Marti was able to come home a couple of hours early from her office and that really helped take the load off my shoulders.

I brought the Journey over from the storage lot and we moved lots of things into it.  Funny, none of my clothes made it in, so I'm a wee bit under dressed, fortunately I found some gym shorts and a tee shirt to change into after my well needed shower.

We're sitting in the Journey listening to the rain on the roof at the Bull Run Regional Park campground.  We pulled into our site in the pitch black darkness. The campground in heavily treed and with all the leaves fallen it was hard to even see the road.  To top it off, we pulled into the same site that our friends Bob and Linda from Because We Can had when they visited here last week.  They had a problem with the 50 amp circuit on the power pedestal and it is still not fixed.  My Progressive Surge Guard indicated one of the two power legs in the socket doesn't work.  No biggy, we plugged in to the 30 amp plug and we're comfortable.

Going to hit the ground running again tomorrow, lots of details to do and things to cross off the list.  Please pardon us if we fall a little behind on the blog.  Marti has her eye surgery early Friday morning and with all the traffic in the Washington DC metro area, it'll be a very early morning for us.

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.
