But things have a way of working out a little differently sometimes. We connected with a buyer in February and headed back to Virginia Beach.
A couple of weeks Pam and I found a house and had three weeks before closing. So we drove to Arizona and back and had a blast, seeing friends and family along the way. We arrived back in time to sign papers and are new home owners. We've been looking at renovation plans
We have the benefit of having a talented Interior Designer daughter and an ace realtor son-in-law so they have some good contacts. Plus we have seen the work they have done on their own house over the years. And they (Jon and Kelly) close on Friday, Lord willing, on the sale of the flip house they just finished.
This is going on while we have been attending to the fun stuff we get to do as grandparents. We took the boys to the Virginia Aquarium which is always a treat.
And we get to spend time with them at the house.
And fishing in the lake behind the house.
We'll have more to say on it and the transition from full-timing to re-establishing a "regular life". We have much to be thankful for and are enjoying this adventure. It's not better or worse -- just different.
More later and thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles! Hope you are well and enjoying where life is taking you.
