|Look! It was actually warm enough for us to have to door open as we worked inside. This is November in IN??? Yep and we love it!|
It is fun but a lot of work reloading a trailer. We line all the drawers and shelves with that non slip shelf liner so things stay in place when bouncing down the road. It is not hard but time consuming. And this fifth wheel has a lot more shelves and drawers than anything we have ever had before. I took a picture of the back of the trailer and only the back because the rest of it looks like a tornado went through it.
We have slowly begun to go through some items in the house. Ok, I have to be honest it is not as easy as I thought it was going to be. I talked to my friend Dee on the phone this evening (remember her from Hardin Ridge) and was telling her this. She said it is funny how an item can sit on a shelf for 20 yrs and you don't give it a second thought but then you have to make a decision whether to keep it or not and then all the memories of that item start flooding back. Where you got it, if it was a gift or not, who gave it to you... Sheesh! I wasn't expecting this. At least since Dan and Hannah are going to be here in our house after we leave we can leave some things here and not have to worry about them. I remember when I started to read Barbara's blog from Me and My Dog how she made it look so easy to down size. I am sure it was "not" easy for her either. I was thinking today about some pictures hanging on the wall that I would miss and then I remembered her saying she took pictures of the ones she couldn't take with her but really liked and that way she would have them with her on the computer. That is such a neat idea, I am going to do that also...thanks Barbara for that idea. If any of you full timers have any other ideas or suggestions that you did when you started out I would sure love to hear them. I do know this, we will be having one HUGE yard sale in March. If you are going to be in the neighborhood you will need to stop by. Oh don't worry I will be reminding you. :))
I wanted to take this time to thank all of you again for the words of encouragement you sent during this rough time for us. It helped soooo much! And I hope you know how much we appreciated it.
From Thorntown we send hugs and best wishes.
