Let the countdown begin!

1 Apr

Guess what I DIDN’t do today–pay rent!! Wooohoooo

No, this is not an April Fool’s joke.

We are in our last few weeks as lawyers/Key Wester/people with an address. So weird. Our last day of work is fast approaching and that means days of tying up loose ends and long nights of packing. Our apartment is a complete disaster with the “keep” pile growing larger and larger by the second. Someone please tell Hani we don’t need to keep every book he’s ever touched. We should have started the purging process a lot sooner but too late now.  I think the dogs know something is up. Olivia has been keeping a watchful eye as our normally neat and tidy house has exploded. Oh their world is about to change!

Immunizations are done (my arm still hurts, stupid tetanus). Containers are purchased. Wifi modem enroute. Skyhorse is at the mechanic for her final check up (definitely not looking forward to that bill). Bought a new composting toilet. Yup, I think we are ready to hit the road!

    I recommend multiple early morning yard sales (citizen ads!!) And considering EVERYTHING as a possible sale + salvation army pickup at the very end…. You’ll still end up with too much stuff – I am 2 days away. from launch point and have several boxes of junk I’m STILL dealing with!!!

    I know exactly how Hani feels. My books and my yarn are more important than my clothes, and being that I am a woman that is saying alot. Jonathan and I are two months behind you headed in the same direction. We wish you safe wanderings with lots of pictures, please. LOL

    YAY!! I know what you mean, my ‘keep’ pile is like the blog taking over the sunroom! I just noticed we both have our countdowns set for the 20th, cool! Are you guys coming to the Expo??

      No expo for us but take good notes! No way well make it out there in time. Which direction are you headed after? Well be in New Orleans the beginning of may and heading west towards Colorado taking our time.
