So. I’m still on schedule to hit the road on May 28th. We’ve had the inspection, the things they wanted done that I can do or have done are done, and the condo association handyman will be here on Thursday to take care of the things that he needs to do. The appraiser will be here on Friday. And after that, it’s less than two weeks before closing.
I’ve begun buying traveling gear I don’t have already (not much, actually — I needed to replace my sleeping bag, among other things), some online (all of which should arrive by next week) and some in the store.
Oh, and here’s a picture of Merlin:
Yes, that’s his name. If I ever have him painted green, then a Merlin is a small falcon. In the meantime he’s named after a wizard 🙂 He’s a Ford Transit Connect, the short wheel base cargo version, which means he has two bucket seats and a 4′ x4′ x6′ space behind them. He’s actually more fun to drive than you’d think he would be.
And my condo is filling up with boxes, which are gradually filling up with my belongings. I packed up a good chunk of my sewing room yesterday, and I’m going to finish that today if I can. My best friend’s daughter’s SO and another friend both work for grocery stores, so I am not hurting for packing boxes.
Nerves are starting to get to be a bit much. Seventeen more days till closing, eighteen more till the movers get here, and nineteen more till I have to be out of the house.
