So with 8 (EIGHT) days to go, our lives are crazy (CRAAAAZZZYYY) right now!!! I have had some of you ask do we have to leave the day we planned to leave… the answer is no… but we still plan to leave March 2nd : )
So what has been going on in our crazy lives… Today was a hectic day to say the least. It started for me at the crack of dawn when I first installed the new hitch on the CRV that will support our bicycle rack and then I started to disassemble some furniture that my son’s family was going to take home with them. Next I made some chorizo and egg tacos for breakfast for them all.. My son and his family were visiting to attend my bride’s surprise retirement party.
The party was held at a really fine local restaurant and it was fun seeing all the people we hadn’t seen in some time. Our son and his family got to come up and enjoy the festivities but our daughter was playing softball at Auburn, Alabama this day. It was really great to hear all the wonderful things that were said about my bride by her current and past co-workers… it brought a tear to the eye now and then. It was a bit eerie in that at times I felt like I was attending her funeral hearing all the great things she had done… : )
But what made the day hectic was that not only was my son taking a lot of furniture home with him for his family to enjoy… but much of the rest of our furniture had been sold and was being picked up this day as well. So by the time the sun was setting we realized we had nearly no furniture left in our house… so where were we going to sit???
Then I had an epiphany… we bought chairs for the motorhome… so until we leave we are camping in our house until the time comes to go…
