How many years have I waited to type that headline?!!! My stepsister Carol asked me the other day just when I first started planning this life transition and I couldn’t quite pinpoint it, but certainly at least 5 years ago. At that point, I didn’t have a firm date in mind—just a desire to transition from a fixed location to a mobile one for the next phase of my life.
I’m still trying to sort out the mental and emotional transition of this life change, but for now, it feels GREAT to see the tunnel behind me rather than continually in front of me!
The whole family here in Illinois helped with a marathon day on Sunday of packing and distributing boxes (mostly from the house into the garage). Then, on Monday, my sister Holley and I finished up cleaning the floors just 5 minutes before my renters’ moving truck arrived with their furniture!
So, this empty house didn’t last long!
It was a quick 30-minute journey to the lovely county park campground where we’ll be staying for the next couple of weeks (while I get final eBay and Craigslist items sold, and sell the Sprinter van).
As I collapsed into one of the Winnie’s reclining seats to enjoy my new 120 square foot home, Millie wasted no time in admiring her giant new “yard”! I think we’re going to like this new rolling home!
