WOD Challenge 7-22-22 We Now Own It!

Well folks, I guess all that breathing and praying paid off!!

I’m no longer feeling petulant or impetuous, I’m feeling jubilant instead because we are now the proud owners of the RV we looked at in Melissa!!

I cannot tell you how elated I am, how grateful to the sellers that did everything in their power to make sure we ended up with the RV, and how anxious I am to get the “ show on the road.”

The house still has not gone on the market however, we have one little jag of carpet to lay down in our dressing room and then we can tell our real estate agent, “let’s go.”

We met with the sellers yesterday, gave them the cashiers check, and filled out all the necessary paperwork and had it notarized. They talked to us for quite a while, and we agreed to meet this Saturday or next to do our walk-through and learn more about the RV. It will stay in the storage facility in Melissa until the end of August or until the house sells and we’re ready to move it to a storage facility closer to our home.

The sellers are a sweet little couple from Sherman who bent over backwards to make sure we were the ones that got the RV. I inquired about the husband‘s health because he suffers from ulcerative colitis. He said he was having a flare and would have to go in for infusion therapy, but it wasn’t too terrible right now. We will base our visit to tour the bus and learn the layout on his well-being, and his schedule. After all, we have time because David doesn’t even retire until October 1.

Meanwhile, I need to start thinking about how to pack our stuff up, what will go with us on the RV, what will go into storage, and what we will sell/give away. I mean, I’ve been thinking of it, but now it’s time to get a little more serious. Initially I was going to box up all of my crafts and jewelry making supplies and sell them, but after going through the closet and making a list of everything I had, I just can’t bear to part with it yet. I keep thinking that later on when we’re done traveling and we’re back in a house I may want to take it up again. Plus, I spent so much money on all those jewelry supplies I will never get it back.

Last night was date night which turned into quite the celebration now that we are owners of the RV. So far I have not posted anything on social media except for one picture that I put on Instagram. My thought is that in the future, I may be like several other bloggers in the RV community, and start a blog on our travels and what life is like in our RV. I think more people have success on Instagram than Facebook. I now get to join others in the RV community with the famous #RVLIFE.

We haven’t told the boys yet, if we don’t see them tonight maybe we will tell them at family dinner on Sunday if I can wait that long, lol. Oddly enough, I did tell Joshua’s ex girlfriend and Christopher’s ex girlfriend. I’m not bragging or anything I’m just overjoyed and wanting to share the news. That’s why I’ve resisted the urge to post on Facebook because I don’t want to jinx anything with the universe by bragging or what seems to be bragging. I am grateful, and so thankful that things lined up for us. We’ve taken the first step in what is going to be a great adventure and I’m anxious to see more of the United States than I’ve ever seen. But first things first; sell the house, sell or trade in my car for a Jeep which Dave says is the perfect Tow vehicle for flat towing.

We’ve also made the decision to have my brother be our homebase and not buy the lake house right now. We decided we do not want extra bills on top of what is going to be a lot of expense dealing with the RV. We will have to do our homework, research, plotting and planning, to get the best deals, discounts, and freebies. RV costs can really stack up if you don’t. The bright side is we won’t have a house payment anymore or insurance or utilities so I’m hoping everything will even out.

Last night we enjoyed our usual date night dinner and drinks followed by playing pool at home followed by getting in the pool to cool off. The night ended on a decidedly happy note 😉💕

Stay tuned for more updates in the saga, unless you’re tired of hearing about it, in which case you can come back later when we start traveling, because I doubt I’ll be able to resist the urge to update you on our progress!!

    • Aww, thank you and I can’t wait t bring you along!! I’m struggling to be patient, but I’m trying to also be more realistic in my expectations. I’m grateful, and so happy. Now I’m just busy with sorting, boxing, and trying to figure out what’s going with us, going to storage, and going in a garage sale. It’s kind of mind numbing and I have to take a lot of breaks. Look on Instagram if you have it, I finally posted some more pics of the inside. 😀
