So, since my last post, we have accomplished quite a bit... the house is empty, final papers will be signed on Monday 11/28. yikes! We will be house-less not homeless.... as many RVers say...
My surgery appears to have been a success - I no longer look like something from a horror movie.... sure glad the grandsons never really noticed, and now - 8 days later - there is not much red and my vision improves every day little by little. Hopefully, the surgeon will agree that it was a success...
We sure have enjoyed our extended visit with our daughter and family.... oh. so. fun.
And the validation comes:
- from the calls and texts that have been coming from work, the last several days...(sure won't miss that!!)
- from the joy felt all around during a visit with family
-from the excitement and anticipation for future extended visits, complete with weekend sleep-overs with the grand-treasures; and planning our first long vacation with the grandsons
-from the building excitement that we are feeling with the final days before we officially 'hit the road'!
So, as we head back to VA, to finish settling into the RV (read: finding spots for all the stuff still waiting to be stuffed somewhere!) - I finish up my last days of work... it sure seems surreal that even a week from now we will be retired, and full time RV-ers. We are confident that this is so right. Isn't it great when validation comes from so many areas?
God is good, life is good.
See ya down the road!
