We're back... don't wanna be... but here I are! :-)
We decided to not stretch this years Arizona Trip, thinkin' we'd better give ourselves a few extra days to prepare our 'situation' for the coming House Closing.
There's not near as much to do as for most folks I guess... We did that, three summers ago! Lordy, has it been that long? Time flies... when you're looking Back on a time of waiting! :-)
It seemed so long looking forward and still, like it was yesterday... kinda weird...
We've got a few pieces of used furniture to re-divest. The stuff we put in so we could live in the house again, when we had to move back in... Those I should have on Craigs list this weekend...
Most of our 'keeper junk'... the stuff we/she just can't part with... has mostly been repacked into some cheap plastic totes Heidi picked up on sale just after Christmas... that has to go to a small storage space, yet to be rented...
One thing is... that pile is a lot smaller than it was three summers ago... we whittled it down even more!
There's still some work to do on the rig... the finishing of the transition and base moulding on the floor... a few other things... and then repacking our Living Stuff into it.(The balance of the RV Remodel is gonna have to be done a lil' at a time... as we live in it again)
Heidi asked me last night; "Was I getting even a little excited?" ... and I replied; "Not Really"...
I guess, I just don't trust it yet... been here before... Twice! :-)
That and, we can't just take off immediately and leave... There's gonna be a few months of re-construction and re-organization; We've got some 'Financial Repairs' to do that are a consequence of the last three years, and the disappearance of most of the equity value in the house ... I got bucked off again! :-) and I'm juuuuuust a lil' slower climbin' back on these days...
Buuuuuut... I'm too dumb to do anything else... So I keep on gettin' up, dustin' off my jeans... and steppin' aboard... one more time.
Some of what's happened was my fault, some was beyond my control... Most, a mixture of the two... Criminee! I thought by the time I'd gotten this old I'd know purty much ever'thing I'd need to know to be the Heroric Figure of a Man I am! :-) How come nobody ever told me that I'd need to keep on learnin'... ever day of my life? :-)
I'm workin' at reshaping the way I live... to remove as much of me, as much of US, as I can... from anything that someone else controls... The less leverage the 'system' has on US... the less control it can impose... Hmmm... sounds kinda like a definition... of sorts... of Freedom and Liberty... Don't it? :-)
Works for ME!
With the house gone... the reduction in our subsistence living expenses is so huge that it'll make those days of re-construction and re-organization Shining Times.
We'll go from a pretty hand to mouth situation, to a strongly positive place... Considering the ordeal that so many are fighting these days... Heidi and I are close to Shining Times! :-)
Our direction will finally be, Moving Forward... instead of Marking Time... It's a real Morale Booster when you can feel the wind in your face, 'cause you're making progress... instead of the wind that's holding you back... Suh-Weet!
One thing I know... we'll get there... and come the spring we'll start rollin' on some circles... if our luck holds... and my judgment don't fail me again :-) those circles will grow wider and longer.
Take Good Care
