Moving

Has anyone moved recently? We have lived here in the same house since 1997. That’s 20 years in September. We are talking about leaving as we have equity and can move to Louisiana and live comfortably for at least a year on what we can sale the property. Now that being said, how do you decide what goes and what stays. We have 4 dogs and 5 cats that will be moving with us.

We decided last week on this move and have given my son first chance at purchasing this property. The next thing is getting a camper shell for the truck to convert to a place for the animals to travel. We will also need a trailer to pull behind the truck. This week we have went to see 2 camper shells. The first one is too big and the 2nd one has a leaky roof and damaged flooring. Neither one will work so we will keep looking. For the trailer, we do have a boat sitting on a nice trailer. To convert it, we would need to remove the boat – Ugh – and then put a floor and sides on the trailer frame.

The idea of moving is overwhelming. We have collected so much stuff. We will probably leave large appliances and furniture but take the generator, power washer and tools. We will most likely sell the motorcycles and car just so we don’t have to move them. We will put the golf cart up for sell next week and should be able to get a couple thousand dollars. How many small kitchen appliances, pans, dishes, glasses, etc. should we take? Then of course paperwork and pictures will be going. I have collected quite a bit of holiday decorations. Do we take them or leave them? We have wood and projects in the shop. Should we take any of that stuff?

The one good thing right now is that we only work on Saturday and Sunday so we have 5 days a week to plan this move.

Home at Last

Missed a couple of days.  We have  driven from Arkansas to Oklahoma to Missouri to Arkansas to Georgia and finally to California. A lot of miles but  I will have to figure a way to make some posts on the road.  Just got home for a couple of days and then heading back to Georgia.

Although I’ve missed April Fools Day, I hope you played a prank on someone. My anniversary was on April 1st so we treated ourselves to a Cajun and blackened fish dinner at the Iron Skillet in Little Rock, Arkansas.

When we got home,  we were welcomed by our 3 dogs and 5 cats.  They definitely missed us.  Here are some pictures of the babies. (Weird that I don’t have any pictures of my other cats. Guess I better take some.)
