I'm back home for a while. OMG! So much to do! This little house is only 1250 square feet and looks and feels overwhelming after life in my 20-foot Daphne. Where to start ....
First of all, I've really pretty much decided to rent the house for a year or so. That means there's much to be done to prepare. I've moved so much in my life; it's a process I shutter to even THINK about it.
Okay, MP, here's where we go into "One foot in front of the other" mode. Start someplace and move forward. I'll be making computer, iPhone and paper lists galore; maybe if I'm really smart I'll integrate them into one location. Hmmm. I've been making lists in Excel all during my adventuring in reference to things needed / wanted for the RV. Hey, I think the thing to do is use that Excel workbook for ALL LISTS. Yeah! One decision made. More later......

As of now it looks like I'll have to put off plans for the big RV trip around the Country and Canada for at least a couple of months. I've got my integrated list started in Excel and I'm putting one foot in front of the other. Holland's graduation is past; now I can start to concentrate on everything else. Oh, yes, next week I'll be guardian-ing [I hesitate to say 'babysit' 'cause they're all bigger than me!] the triplets while David and Kari head to Florida for Kari's Tri team's participation in the swim around the Florida Keyes- a 16-mile swim. I'll be taking over for the triplets last three days of school for this year; then they're on to Eighth Grade in September.
I'll be continuing to plan, work and prepare my house to rent. But, I absolutely refuse to give myself a lot a time pressure. I'm retired. My goal is to ENJOY the process of life - whatever it is at the moment and what comes up on the horizon.
Oh, and I need to wish Quinn happiness in her new house - she's moving from a one-bedroom apartment to a two bedroom place today.....in San Jose, CA.
7:00PM Just went to see "42," the story of Jackie Robinson. It was great and brought back wonderful memories - my dad was a die-hard Yanks fan. I started cheering for the Dodgers at about the age of 7 or 8; I'd like to think I was asserting myself - NOT. It was just fun to watch the World Series every year and 'legally' argue with Dad! Remember all those Yankies vs Dodgers World Series?
Just a thought - where would we be with 'all white' sports right now? Hmmm!
