Retirement/RV update

Two days into terminal leave and the thing I'm enjoying the most is more relaxed evenings with Michael. We have time for walks, chatting, games, movies....of course, we'll begin school after we move and won't have such care-free days....but for now....it is super nice to be more relaxed in the evenings.

Michael is wading through paperwork

We continue packing. Movers will come on Monday. We need to have all our donated items out of the home by then. We also need to have all the trailer stuff separated - we'd hoped to actually PACK the trailer before the movers came so if something wasn't going to fit, we could put it in storage.

We'd appreciate prayer about our trailer repairs. We took it to All Rite RV Repair in Yuba City 3.5 weeks ago. We've called weekly. We went by yesterday and were told they were "working on it," though it didn't seem to have been moved in 3.5 weeks. They said they'd call us by 4:30 p.m. with an estimate. No call. Michael is calling new places this a.m. to see if someone else can work on it. He plans to go pick it up. We need some water damage repaired and the AC fixed.  We had hoped to have it this week to pack into it.... We need to move into it on the 30th....we may well move into something else while it is being repaired - please pray the repairs are easy and we find a good shop which will actually do what they say they are doing.

Our Plan X is to put it in the shop, store the van, and catch a space A somewhere until it is done. LOL We still have a 3 room tent.

Sweet Reminders

It's GLORIOUS to have the Gherkins home.  I'm always contemplative when they leave. This morning I find little reminders of our time together.
Looks like Jamin won

Such sweet times with all....

And now....time for a walk and on with the day. We really need to integrate some work into the plan today.....though I know it's starting with a morning trip to Roseville...with Michael...because, you know, "He's not working!"
