It’s Been A While

There is more progress being made every day but at the same time more keeps happening to slow us down.  For instance, while the weather has been unusually warm for over a month, payback is coming later this week. Which means Steve has to take some time off from work to winterize the Allegro and at the same time learn how because the systems are different.

Two days ago I put an ad on Craigslist to sell Tulip and yesterday a couple gave us a deposit to buy her. That was an unexpected quick sale and she wasn’t quite cleaned up yet so there is that to do before we turn her over. And we have to get a small roof leak repaired by Thursday. All the RV techs are booked out, Steve is working, and Thursday our family is having lunch at a restaurant for my mother’s birthday which I forgot about. And today two windows are being replaced.  Next week Tuesday is Steve’s last day at work and then I am promoting him to Chief Coordinator.

The house is a horrible mess. We had a garage sale and already spent the proceeds from that for our trip to Arizona to buy Alice.  Bit by bit we are hauling what didn’t sell plus more over to my mother’s house to have another garage sale.  I still have a few more ads to place for some furniture pieces but then the rest goes either in storage or to my mother’s.  We started taking things to Alice and her outside bins are quickly filling up. But then I noticed Steve took boxes from Tulip over without going through them so that has to be dealt with.

The good news is we made it through the house inspection process without having to do much. The windows were the main items. We don’t know what the house appraised at but it met the sales price at a minimum. So there should be no more hurdles to closing which was moved up by one day to April 7th.

After the closing we will collapse in Alice with a Margarita and not move a muscle for a couple of days.  Then I will catch up on blog reading as I am way behind on keeping up with many of you.

P.S. There is a new item above in the menu for Allegro Alice where you can see some interior pictures.


I am finally up early enough every morning to see the sunrise.
