Planning Ahead

Texas weather is something else. Here it is early January and the temperature was 60. I took full advantage of the warm weather and pulled out the fifth wheel. We have bought a new rug for the living room. I am soooo ready to hit the road.

We still have a lot to do around here before we can leave. Mom has one more chemo treatment next month and then she will have to undergo radiation. We still have a lot of stuff to do away with. I know that “good things come to those who wait”.

The forecast is calling for another good weather weekend and we plan on taking full advantage of it. The truth of the matter is we are planning on having garage sales whenever the weather allows. I know you are wondering why we just don’t call Goodwill to pick this stuff up. Well, first of all they would have to send more than one truck over to get all of it. Second, of all we are trying to make extra cash for any extra expenses for our journey. There are a few things we would like to mark off our list of things we need before we go. We need a small generator, RV tailgate and slide-out awnings to name a few. It would be great to get those things without it really costing us.

We really don’t have that much time left to get everything done so we are planning on being very busy for the next eight months.
