Still Sorting, Pic’s



I may be moved into my 5’er, but there is still a whole lot of STUFF that has to be sorted and dispersed.  Most will not make it to the RV, but it should go somewhere else.   My son will be here Sunday to help move the business equipment and armoires to storage.  I still am amazed at how much can be put into this RV.  I know that a lot that I have moved, I really don’t need and will have to purge.  I guess that is all part of the process of moving from one life style to another.

Gypsy and others have asked for pictures, so here they are.  The above picture is the view from the street.

I still haven’t put the awning out.  It’s way up there, so I’ll wait till this weekend to put it out.  If you look close, you can see Angel sitting on the bench.  The last one shows how close my neighbor is to me.  Most of the residents here are '”long term”.  The shed in the back has been taken down but they will clean up what’s left soon. 


                                               Welcome To My Kitchen

       I have more counter space than I had in the doublewide and almost as much storage.

                      Dining Room                      Bedroom             &           Living Room

In the living room I have Angel’s crate with a round table top with a table cloth that I use as a coffee table.  In the bedroom I have a folding wicker shelf and in the bathroom I have tall narrow shelf with baskets for more storage there.  Angel’s favorite place is on my bed, right in the middle of the pillows, where she usually hides. 


                                                             Bathroom too.

There is so much room with all the slides out.  The only room that is crowded is the bathroom because of the shelf and I also have a digital bathroom scale that needs to be on a hard surface for it to weigh accurately.  I tried storing it on it’s side, but that won’t work. 

I’ve read where a lot of people find it hard to make their beds, well I guess that it is the way it is here too.  There was a king size mattress in the bedroom with a 2” foam topper on it.  I took the mattress out and put my own queen size mattress with a double pillow top in.  I gave the original one to a resident here in the park and took the foam topper and cut it down to fit the sofa/sleeper.  Angel also has a new mattress in her crate, tent and one also in traveling crate that is in the car.  It is still tight, but I can make the bed a lot easier.  I didn’t have any linens for a king size and I tried making it before I got rid of it and I couldn’t even tuck in the sheet.  It just had to go.  Besides that, I already have linens for the queen.   

With all the extra things that I have (shelves etc.), I will have to be very careful when I prepare to move and make sure that there is nothing in the way when I pull the slides in.  I am still searching for a tow vehicle and hope that I can do a maiden voyage to Pismo Beach with my son in October. 

I’m back at the old place and will  finish  this post (that’s where the internet is).  I finally sold the shed, but had to take a big loss on it.  He paid cash and it is up to him to move it.   No other offers, so I at least got some money for it, otherwise I would have had to leave it.  Now if I can sell the armoires and the business, a tremendous weight will be lifted.

I will close this now, because I now have to go and do laundry. Yuck! 

Thanks for visiting
