You guys/gals weren’t kidding! I’m talking about you long-timer-full-timers. Every other year, Bill and I have read your blog posts at this time of year. You have lists of things that you are checking off on a daily basis before heading south. At that point all we did was sigh and wish it were us.
Here it is October 7 and now we are doing the same thing. Bill actually said to me yesterday “We need to make another list of all of the appointments we are lining up, things are getting booked up!”
On the table in the Suite is a scribbly note pad with a ‘list’ of things to do “Before We Leave”.
First though we need to remove 5 days for a commitment to the Toronto RV Show. This is a done deal, and although I have decided to stay home with our pooch this year, I have offered to ride along with Bill to deliver 2 large rv’s from CanAm in London to the International Centre in TO one day. He will need a co-driver, for safety sake. I don’t need him falling asleep at the wheel on his return trips.
Then there are 6 days tied up with family, friends' visits and commitments of that sort.
So, we’re down to 5 days. Some of the ‘list’ things are small but written down so we don’t forget to do them. The rest of the 'list' things are appointments and will only take brief interludes of time. Picking up prescriptions, oil change and delivering my plants to my sisters.
Aside from that list is the normal “guide to hitting the road” list. There is an interior and exterior list, just to be sure we don’t get ahead of ourselves and become negligent. Bottom line is that the list is manageable and we will get them dealt with.
Today is another beautiful summer-in-fall day and other than a few small things to do inside, we have managed to be outdoors most of the time. Even Clemson is at the door each time to get out there in the sunshine.
So, keep on checking your lists and we’ll be doing the same here on The Ridge.
Thanks for following along! All comments are welcome.
