More Work on the House

We have under 30 days to go before we put our house on the market.

Selling the house is key to us getting underway. We decided we were not going to finance the RV and have a mortgage hanging over our heads. Given the current economic downturn, that seems like a good decision.

I am glad we chose to put the 'For Sale' date well into the future. We decided last September we'd put house on the market in April.
YIKES --it is almost here.
So we are 'busy beavers' getting rid of 'stuff' and getting the house ready.

After three weeks on Craigslist and not getting any action at our garage sale a couple of weeks ago, we donated the wall units to the Salvation Army. Hopefully they will find a loving home.
Meanwhile, work continues on the house. Pam tackled the bathrooms. She did a terrific job of scraping out the old caulking and replacing it. She also painted the bathroom which looks great. One more coat there and onto the last bathroom for new caulking.
Adam is in Canada for a week with Meghan while she gets ready for her next chemo session on Tuesday (this will be 4 of 8).
Since his bedroom is empty for a while, it is a good time to finish it. For years we have had a curtain over his closet door. I decided to go to change that and went to Home Depot. We already installed new closet doors in two other bedrooms so this will match those. Hopefully I will be able to finish that up today.
I think we are done with winter so we got some pansies to decorate the yard. I think you can't have enough flowers in a yard. Plus I think they will really kick in and be in full bloom in a couple of weeks. Just in time for the first prospective buyers!
The focus has obviously shifted for us. Instead of dreaming and planning for our RV lifestyle change, we are working as hard as ever on finishing our 'punch list' on our house. With interest rates coming down, Spring getting ready to spring we are getting excited!

  1. When you wrap things up at your house, do you want to come over and help us with ours? Ya'll are doing a great job. We're a couple of weeks behind you. Here's hoping for a strong Spring for existing home sales!
