It has been a busy few months. I’m getting ready to retire in December. In January, we are leaving our 2400 square-foot home to move into an RV and travel the United States. To say I’m a tiny bit apprehensive would be an understatement. On the other hand, I’m enormously excited. So many emotions and so little time to process them.
We have spent weeks and weeks of getting rid of our household things through a series of garage sales, Craig’s List, and Facebook sale/trade/swap groups. There have also been the scheduled donation pick-ups and offering free things to our family and friends, but we still have so much left.
As the move-out/move-in goal draws near, I’m finding that getting rid of the old life in preparation for the new is exciting, bold, adventurous, scary—and tedious. The only thing standing between me and the finish line are a thousand tiny details. They will all get done. Every single one of them. Soon those tiny details will be a distant memory when we experience that first ribbon of highway through the huge RV window.
There are only a few short weeks left, so it’s crunch time. Chop! Chop!
