Are we crazy??? At times, I really think we are. But when we talk things over, and pencil things out, it just seems like our unorthodox ways work for us. And in this particular case, they had better.
This decision did not come lightly, took a lot of research, questions, and some questions with answers, a lot of “i don’t knows” and a wee bit of gypsy on our part. Randy really appealed to me when he said that it would be a fun way to test our skills. I have to say that’s true, we pretty much know what we can do with a typical property, so let’s see how we do living in this rather Bohemic way. Well, not totally Bohemic, if you’ve seen our RV in previous posts, you know…
But it’s been a process. A process of changing the way we look at things, the items we’ve accumulated over the years. Things that have been near and dear to my heart for the time, the place, the people that are connected to those items. So things have been gifted to many, sold and donated. It takes time and the proper state of mind. I’m kind of an expert packer…this will be my 29th time moving in my 58 years. The catalyst is that both of my husband’s wrists are deteriorating and he needs to take a much needed break from using tools, which means we are through, for the time being, of fixing houses up for ourselves. Home ownership will not be in our future for perhaps a year or so, longer if we like living lightly. Living Lightly…I like the sound of that.
We will stay local for the time being, not wanting to leave the Venice area, family and friends, and of course we will continue to work. Not near enough to retirement age. Just need to take a time out, won’t help the damage done to Randy’s wrists, but it may prolong the inevitable (they are talking a double fusion).
So stay tuned for what could be the ride of our lives~the good, the bad, and the ugly.
