The Big Day

As usual it was cold in the trailer when we woke up on this January 17. The clock showed almost 8am and I threw my legs over the edge to set up the thermostat. It seemed like a normal day, but of course, it wasn’t. It was moving day and after breakfast we got busy. Bea had already moved most boxes into one of the vans but there was still the outside chores, like emptying the holding tanks then pouring antifreeze into the freshwater tank and letting it run through the system. I removed the under-belly heaters and moved the propane tanks into the trailer for storage.
Finally all was ready and Molly had taken up her spot on the floor of the van. Both vehicles were packed and ready to go. A last stop at the office and then it was out on the road across the city to the east side.

Our “Snowbird-house owners” had left in the very early morning and prepared their home to receive us – the house sitters.

It took some running back and forth to move our stuff into the house but then it was all done.

Later I drove into the city to find a grocery store. What I found was a peach pie to celebrate our new temporary home.

  1. So glad you are out of that trailer and warm with peach pie!!!!

  2. I'm so glad you'll be able to be comfortable and warm. Living in a trailer when it's snowy outside can't be fun.

  3. I think I speak for everybody that we are sooo happy to see you in a house. It's been painful to read some of your and Bea's posts.

  4. I completely agree with Barbara's post !! It really must feel BLISSFULL !!!
