One More Thing Checked Off!!

Hey Ya'll,

Well....after a rocky start over the weekend, Walt and Dan were finally able to drive up to Carson City today, to take up most of our "Stuff", that needed to go into a Storage Building.  But we just couldn't get everything packed on time, no matter how hard we tried.  But all in all, I believe that we managed to get at least 75% of it packed.  The rest we will either have to take up later, or leave behind.  Oh My!!  As it is, instead of renting the 10x10 unit we originally planned, we ended up renting a 10x20!  Of course that gives us plenty of space to store the "Stuff", as well as have the space to be able to go through it later to repackage it for better, longer term storage.

Two items that we know for sure that we will be leaving behind, is Walt's Rosewood Desk and matching Credenza.  They are beautiful, and....HUGE!  So unfortunately, because they are so large, no one that we know has the space for them.  So we will be leaving them with the House.  And because they are so big and HEAVY, it is not worth trying to remove them.  And they are too nice to take to the Dump, so whoever buys our house, will be inheriting some really nice Office Furniture!!

Next up is the trip down to Mesa to pick up the RV!  Assuming Mark gets the time off, and isn't sick by this weekend (our daughter Christa is really sick with the Flu right now)!  So if all goes as planned, then Walt and Mark will drive down to Mesa, AZ to pick up the RV and bring it back here so that we can spend the next several days loading it up with the rest of our belongings!!

As for the Band, well....not so good!  We postponed the Fill until the 29th of the Month hoping to be up in the Reno area by then.  Since the Winter Storms have begun, it will be harder and harder to get over the Sierra's just for a Fill.  So we are really hoping that we will get a break in the storms long enough for us to take the RV over to Carson City.  Then we will only be about a 30 minute drive from the Doctor's Office in Reno!

But because of my "unfill" 2 Months ago, when I begged her to not take out more than .1 ml (and she took .3)!!  I have been eating wayyy toooo much!!  I haven't stepped on a scale in over a Month and I am sure that I have gained back at least 5 lbs if not 10!!  But since I packed the scale, I won't know for sure until we move up in the RV.  But hopefully, we will be living up there by then, so that I can make it to the Fill Appointment (as I really need it!)!!  I really need to get back on track and being so "unfilled" is killing me, especially now during the Holidays!!

Oh well, Que Sera, Sera!  I have made my bed, and I have had to lie in it too!  Just can't wait for the next Fill to get back on track!

On another note, Walt and I have been Bed shopping lately as we need a new Bed for the RV.  The Bed we currently have is a Tempurpedic and I love it, but Walt kind of hates it!  Even so, we did go look at the new Cloud's they have been advertising lately.  Now, don't let the advertising fool you.  The least expensive Cloud isn't any more comfortable than the bed we already have.  In fact, the only one that is as comfortable as advertised, is the top of the line Cloud.  And for the Cal King like we need, just for the Mattress (which is not including the Box Springs as we won't need it in the RV) it is $4000!!!!!  So we are probably going to go with a Sleep Number Bed since you can change the comfort level for each side.

And because of this, we are probably going to wait a few months (at least) to purchase a new bed.  However, we are still going to give our current Tempurpedic to my parents, as they really need it.  We can use the bed that is in the RV for now.  Luckily, a good 3 inch Tempurpedic Pad (which we have) can do wonders to help make almost any mattress livable for the short term!  And on this note, till next time.....

Aloha My Friends :)

Oh Debi, I feel for you. Having to move and pack and then go to your destination in the winter isn't ideal. Keep your attitude positive and things will go better. I am currently unfilled now too and it's very hard at this time of year. I am really trying hard to not eat the tempting foods around me. This too shall pass.

Thanks Kathy! Unfortunately, it has been so long that I stopped trying to NOT EAT the tempting stuff! Which is why I need a good kick in the tail to stop!! LOL
