Writing Prompts

What Day is it Anyway? 6-30-22

On behalf of Linda G Hill, I will attempt to answer that. In fact, she invites us all to answer that in today’s post.

In answer to that, I’m surprised that I know! The only reason I do is because Thursdays are ”date nights” and I look forward to them all week!

I’m surprised I even know my own name right now because I am currently residing on cloud 9 after hearing the words I’ve been dying to hear for so long!

My anxiety level is off the charts, as well as my blood pressure, but in a good way…if there could be a good way. I’m literally coming out of my skin, I don’t know what to do with myself, because we are still in a holding pattern for the moment.

Ok, have I revved up the suspense?

Are you intrigued? Well, tune in tomorrow…just kidding!!!

My hubby is finally going to retire at the end of September! Our plan is to sell the house and by a motor home and travel!! You guys don’t know how long I’ve been on the “5-year-plan”- in other words, he kept saying, “In five more years”. Thats been going on for about twenty years!

I’m so excited I’m hyperventilating! If we don’t tell the kids soon, I’m going to burst! I literally had to have CBD assistance the past two mornings in a row just to calm down! I have already secured the realtor, the storage facility, and prepped the house for pictures.

Yesterday, David sold his truck!! I have to go get him after the deal is done around 4:30! My car is next I’m sure, because he wants to get rid of our car payments and downsize to a small truck we can tow behind the RV.

I am not worried about any of that or selling this house. But!! We made the mistake of watching an instructional video on handling the monster machine and what it takes to put diesel fuel in it. That will take the wind out of your sails for a minute!!!

My good friend, Michelle is coming tomorrow to help me start my lists: What to toss, what to keep for the motor home, what to take to storage, and what to sell. That will test my sanity right there. Lol, but it’s all good!

We are going Saturday morning to Burleson to look at a motor home Dave found on Rv TRADER. Sunday we will have family dinner and tell the kids and in-laws. My brother already knows, as do all my bestest friends! My brother has graciously offered to house us in the interim if our house sells before Dave retires and has had time and practice driving the RV.

Sunday afternoon, we plan on meeting with our realtor (a good friend of mine) about putting it on the market and run the numbers for us.

Did I mention how excited I am??

Every time I tell someone the news, I feel like I can’t breathe! Is that overwhelmed? Maybe, but I have faith it will all work out! I have to! This is my dream come true!

Stephanie had a great idea! She suggested I turn my blog into a travel blog and that way y’all can follow along with us on our new adventure! What a ride it’s going to be! She said maybe I could call it, Come Travel With Me. I like it!!

So what day is it again? Oh yeah, it’s ”date night”! The perfect opportunity to celebrate!

I’m going to leave you with a photo and a link (hopefully) to the motor home we are going to tour. Wish us luck and say a prayer, I would so appreciate it! ”Lord, keep us healthy and safe so we can enjoy our well-earned retirement.” That is my prayer.
