Well, the final garage sale did not go as planned. 😦 We sold very little actual computer related items. Several other items we dug up to sell but not the computer stuff. A friend of ours bought a computer but no one else did. Not one computer knowledgeable person came to the sale which was odd because we invited a lot including local computer repair companies. The amount of parts that Roy had was tremendous and would have been a great buy for anyone doing that. Oh well, guess Good Will will get a great donation. Liz did great selling her stuff so at least there’s an upside to the day! And we got to play with Madisyn a lot while we were waiting for people to come and that certainly make any bad day into a good day! At least, the weather was beautiful and we enjoyed resting in our rockers.
Today is our son Chad’s 34th birthday. 34 years ago we were welcoming our first son into this world. He was a perfect little boy and a joy to raise. He’s now married to Amy with three beautiful children of his own. They live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Chad served in the military and resigned his commission as a Captain after serving in Iraq. He’s now an Engineer working as Project Manager at Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana and is studying to be a Pastor. Happy Birthday Chad!
I got to show our house to someone yesterday. She didn’t know how much the rent was when she stopped and asked to see it but she loved it. Haven’t heard from her so the rent was probably to high but it was really nice to get to walk someone through our house and enjoy their reaction to the beauty of it. One day someone else will get to live there!
We’ve determined that if we are willing to work 32-35 hours a week we can go ahead and start our adventure. We’ve updated our workamping resume to include Roy and all the great things he can do. We are sending it to employers who are looking for someone to work more than the original 20 hours we thought we’d work. Some employers pay you for the hours you work and give you a free RV site, so those are the ones we are targeting. We would keep the house on the market until it does sell and then we can move down to a 20 hour a week position somewhere or one that just gives you a free site for under 20 hours worked. That’s the real goal but since we need the money from the house sale we can’t get there quite yet! We’ve seen some jobs in Wyoming, Idaho and Colorado and wouldn’t that be so cool to be in that area of the country during the hot summer months! When it got up to 80 degrees recently we just knew it was getting close to time to be up north and possibly soon we will be!
We’re heading to Pass Christian next Friday for a weekend stay at Wolf River RV park. Can’t wait!
Ya’ll come back now ya’ hear!
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Ephesians 4:4
