After I arrived home the end of January (for almost a month), we both had doctors and dentist appointments all day on a couple of other days during the week. I think, in all, we supported 4 different doctors, a dentist (same dentist for both of us), and an optometrist....all in a week. At least the flight physical, dental checkups and cleanings, and the real physicals are over, and we don't have to fool with them for another year.
We started sorting through the things that we want to sell, deciding what goes on ebay, what goes on craigslist, and what we want to make available to friends and family in an email. What a chore! We now have half the garage dedicated to 'stuff ' we want to sell in order to rent the house and save money for the boat. We really only got started....there is much more to go through and get rid of and then those things that we are going to keep, we have to pack up to store. It will be a process....we can't make ourselves get rid of everything that we know we are going to have to eventually get rid of, so we do it in waves. The closer it gets to setting sail to more things will have to go. But, we did get a pretty good start.
So, over the next few months if you think of someone who needs furniture, wall decor, Ben Hampton prints (signed and numbered), clothes, and they are willing to pay a fair price for them, send them our way. Those things we can't sell we will eventually donate, but we want to raise as much money as we can to put toward the boat and the cruising kitty.
