I cannot believe we have only 40 days left and then we will be full time rvers. This winter has both dragged and flown by. Some days it seems they will never end and others are over so fast. I have been consuming all my hours finishing up the wedding decorations. I wish I could share them with you but do not want to ruin the surprise for the wedding. I have made so many bows I'm surprised I am not twisting the sheets in my sleep.
Sunday we went through all our clothes again, knowing we had to decrease what we take, not enough storage for them all. We took 3 full bags to Good Will today. Art went through his closet and got rid of all his dress clothes he used to have to wear for work, and that filled up the bags fast. I still had some shirts I didn't want and a coat or two. We then took all summer items out and they are now in the Avalanche. We still have a ton of closet space so hopefully we can keep all our clothes in there. I have been working so hard on the wedding so I get back out to the camper to finish lining shelves with the non slip lining, then we can load up more things from the house.
Today we went to the Indianapolis Sport, Boat and Travel show. Even though we have the new fifth wheel we love to see all the new models and all the different styles. And it is just amazes me how they get all those trailers in there the way they do. Some of them you couldn't put a hand between. Wow! Our salesman was there from the dealership we bought ours from and that was fun talking with him. Nice guy. We also bought the neatest storage bag to use for our extra clothes and shoes. It is water proof and very sturdy but should store easier than a plastic tub. Art worked in the garage all day Monday sorting through tools so they can be divided up between the SILs. Tomorrow we are removing pictures from the walls and shelves, taking them out of the frames so we can store them. And storing all our keepsakes that we can't bear to part with in plastic tubs. Hannah said we are more than welcome to keep them here. It helps so much with the emotional stand point knowing you don't have to part with items that mean so much. I mentioned to Art I feel like I am waiting for open heart surgery and brain surgery combined. Such huge events in our lives coming up, it keeps a knot in your stomach.
I know I cannot wait to get back down into the forest, back into nature. I feel like a different person out in the great outdoors. I find I don't have to find things to keep myself entertained like TV or books. Just sitting and watching and listening to the sights and sounds of the woods make me so happy.
And....I cannot wait to get that camera back out and start taking more pictures of our surroundings.
I know March will fly by because we have so many things going on it will make it go faster. This has been a dream of ours for years and it seems so unreal that in 40 days it will all be coming true. And we get to go back to Hardin Ridge in April and May to help open the park back up. Then on to Turkey Run State Park in June, and back to Hardin Ridge until the end of Oct and then hopefully to North Carolina, then off to Florida for the winter.
Best Wishes to you all from Indiana.
