OMG! We are really getting close now!

We are so close to going fulltime in our motorhome. It's getting very exciting. The house is almost completely cleaned out except for what we need to stage it for renting.

Cross your fingers that we get an excellent renter quickly. We'd love to be in Red Lodge, Montana the weekend of July 16th.

The storage unit is about 1/2 full and about all that's left is odds and ends to box up and then, of course, the last minute stuff and furniture.

We'll be hopefully listing the house early next week to find a renter. That will dictate our departure date.

It's getting exciting now but also a little scary at the same time. So many things yet to do and so many decisions to make. When I look around, all I see is lots of "stuff" that needs to be done something with. Plus a messy house that is in need of some cleaning! That is being ignored for now.

I work at the foodbank today which will take me away from my work here but should be able to get tons done over the weekend.

More later........................

We now have rented a storage unit and are starting to load it up with boxes and will take a load or two over everyday. No time for pictures today.

More next time.............

June 21, Happy Father's Day ~ Update for My Followers

Happy Father's Day to all Fathers! What a wonderful day! The weather is great here and just how we like it. Cool, overcast and yet bright.

Have you ever seen such a mess?! Well, if you've ever done any moving, I'm sure you have. This is the way our garage looks today, June 21st, 2009. I won't take photos of the way the house looks. It's about as bad. I think it's time to get that storage unit and get the garage cleaned out, don't you think? It was supposed to happen this weekend but it might not happen till during the week sometime.

Today I need to continue to pack up the kitchen and the bathrooms. Everything else is pretty much done. Always need to go through clothes one more time. If anyone has any suggestions, please, I'll all ears!

My husband is getting the motorhome ready; changing the oil, making sure the slideouts are working properly and whatever guys do. I'm starting to load up and am trying to use up most of the canned goods as I believe they are much too heavy especially when you can use frozen veggies and we would rather have fresh fruits. I'm working on that now.

We have started to stage the house but you couldn't tell it with all the boxes and misplaced items. We're getting there and I'll come back and post photos again in a day or so.

Happy Father's Day!!

We're closer to getting out on the road and becoming fulltimers. Our motohome is almost ready and just waiting for an oil change and to be loaded up. The house is almost packed up. It's amazing how much "stuff" you acquire over only 4 years of living in this house.

Our original goal was to be gone by now and our next goal isn't going to be made either. That was July 15th. But, it will be close. I have a commitment at the local foodbank and need to continue to help out there through the month of July.

Closets are almost empty, the garage is loaded with boxes for storage and the kitchen is next to pack up. I should be taking pictures of our mess but if you've ever moved, you know what kind of a mess we're living in.

We still hope to go east before fall and visit family and can't wait to get back to some of our favorite resorts in southern CA and Arizona. Plus finding new ones to try out and all the new people we'll meet a long the way.
