Hurry up and wait……….

Geeesh… kind of like being back in the military…… Hurry up and wait. We are sitting here chomping at the bit, ready to start the next exciting chapter of our life and can’t do anything except sit here and wait for the house to sell.

On top of that – my bride and I have both managed to pick up some kind of respiratory thing…. although I must confess it’s a bunch easier to deal with when you have the time to sit around and heal up versus forcing yourself to get up and go to work. Waiting for the house to sell is a convenient distraction for doing that while sitting around generating enough snot and mucus to float a boat. We have had one showing of the house so far — and potential buyers liked the house – but didn’t like the fact it only has one bathroom, so they are continuing to look.

Still cleaning out cabinets of random crap that you accumulate over 30 years – and looking for  potential buyers for the things that may or may not go with the house (for those interested: Golf cart, Bedroom suite [with Queen size Tempurpedic mattress], kitchen table dining set, 51″ LCD Sony TV and a nice glass curio cabinet)

Enough rambling for today – thankx for checking it out…… can’t wait until I get to share the real adventure with you.  🙂

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)
