The Move Continues

We're gradually getting closer to the big move.  More donations have been made and more sorting and storing has happened.  The biggest dreaded project of going through years of old business records has been completed and a car load of paperwork went to a commercial shredding operation.  A big advantage of moving to this lifestyle is ridding ourselves of mounds of "stuff" we've been carting around for years.  We've accomplished a lot of that in the last couple of weeks.  It has been exhausting, mentally and physically.  

But we've had a lot of help!  Our son and his wife are now enjoying a beautiful bedroom suite and our youngest granddaughter now has a "big girl" bed in her room.  Grammy's old childhood rocking chair has a home with Miss Iz.


We've not had any more photos from Newmar of our motorhome under construction, but we did receive word that it is on schedule and in the process of being painted.  We are trying to get a few items ready to take with us when we go up to Grand Rapids to pick it up. The remainder of what we plan to move into the motorhome when we come back with us, will be stacked in the middle of the basement family room.  Our daughter and son-in-law and boys have already started to move boxes and some furniture over here.  It sounds like we'll all be living under this one roof for a week or so.

I'm terribly far behind on my blog reading -- by now are you on the road? Your children will love you when it's time for them to clean out your estate. We've just started going through my parents home -- did part of all their files last weekend. It's going to take a LONG time. I'm committed to not doing this to our children, but wondering how to figure out WHEN to do the big clean out. I sort of wish I had a good reason like you guys did! Hope you're having fun!
