Five days and counting…

Well with the punch list updated and days dwindling (down to 5 days) we are starting to see a wee bit of light at the end of the tunnel. I had the base plate installed on the CRV and the motorhome was dropped off today for repairs to the refrigerator. They also serviced the generator and checked out all the plumbing after all of our recent freezes.  The only plumbing casualty was the kitchen faucet (which may have already been damaged from before).  So they will fix everything and have it ready for us on Friday.

The final garage sale is on Saturday so by Saturday evening we should have a nearly empty house. Finally!!! All that will be remaining in the house is what is to be moved into the motorhome by Tuesday. Planning to still hit the road by Wednesday.

With Sharon’s retirement party out of the way mine is next.  It will be on Thursday at one of my favorite local taverns named Fitzwillies. If you are ever in College Station, TX you need to go there and have a burger and fries or an order of extra crispy wings along with a nice ice cold beverage. Tell Shelby John Z. sent you…

Couple of recent nibbles on the house and we hope to have an offer before we leave… if not a realtor will take over the endeavor for us.  Selling the car is another story we hope to resolve soon. And tonight I will work my last college basketball game as an NCAA statistician as the home town Texas A&M Aggies take on the Oklahoma Sooners.

  1. If you haven't sold the car in time to leave you might check with CarMax. I sold a Durango to them and found them to be very fair and easy to deal with. Bet it's nice to see the light at the end of the tunnel!
