We are now living in our new home. Of course, things are far from the way we want them to be, but we feel good about the progress being made.

Thursday, we brought the motor home over to the condo to “unload”. Basically, we only moved our clothes and personal items and left all the kitchen stuff. Since we will continue to RV, we wanted it set up to travel a few days each month throughout the year. It was amazing how much we had to move since we felt like we were leaving everything in the RV.
The condo is relatively new--built in 2006. It has 1277 sq. ft. which seems huge compared to the 300 and 400 sq. ft. we have been living in for so long. It has two bedrooms and two full baths, a living room, dining room, and kitchen. There is a small laundry room and a one-car garage. Through French doors off the dining room is a small patio. A row of evergreens separates us from our backdoor neighbors on the next street. There are only 31 units in the complex on three streets all of which are dead ends. There is no thru traffic so it’s a very quiet neighborhood.

With all these features geared toward an elderly population, you can guess what our neighbors are like. That’s right--retirees. And a very friendly group of retirees, too. Sorta reminds me of an Escapee’s park. Our next door neighbor brought over cucumbers from his garden this morning. The lady across the street has already invited us to her home for “game days” this fall.
Our furniture was delivered on Friday. We bought the bare essentials and will fill in as we have more time to shop. Knoxville Wholesale Furniture had some pretty nice pieces for reasonable prices. Still, it didn’t take long to run through $10K. We’ve made numerous trips to Target, Walmart, Lowes, and various other stores for all that other stuff--bedding, dishes, cookware, trash cans, toilet brushes, alarm clocks, lamps, everything needed to set up housekeeping.

That’s it for today. Thanks for tagging along.
