Pretty much settled but still moving things around. We have been going to the gym (Esporta) with Jeff and I joined yesterday through my supplemental insurance. Still finishing organizing the garage but I am now able to find everything I need.
As you can imagine we have been quite busy setting up our home. I’ve had two appointments at the Phoenix VA just getting established. Most will be done at a local VA clinic but I had to go to Phoenix for these two. Hematology/Oncology on Tuesday and Cardiology on Thursday.
We had Stanley Steamer clean the carpets on the 16th coordinated by Jeff. We had our first tour of the house when we arrived on the 17th and made a list of the changes needed. Starting with a good cleaning. We left the Florida house spotless and patched all the holes.
Left Florida on Tuesday morning to start the journey of four 500-mile days to Gilbert, Arizona. North on I-75 then west on I-10 to Biloxi, Mississippi for the first night. Wednesday morning, west on I-10 to Seguin, Texas just east of San Antonio for the second night.
In addition to all the packing, staging and prep work we spent the day at Craig and Janet’s on Wednesday the 1st. Had dinner with the Stones on Thursday and with the Fales on Saturday. On Tuesday, a mobile notary came to the house for us to sign all the paperwork for the Arizona closing.
Yesterday was the last day of Sunday Golf here in the Villages. We have golfed every Sunday with the same group since we arrived except when we were travelling.
We have sold our house so things have been very hectic around here. We received an offer on the first of October. After back-and-forth negotiations, we settled on a deal at a fair price and we had moved the requested closing date back to December.
Open houses, showings, doctor appointments and golf have filled up the second half of September. Open houses are for two hours and we need to be out of the house. During one of the open houses we took Mike out to lunch at Ski Beach. He has been singing its praises and we have not been.
Left early Monday morning for a six-hour drive to Lorton. The weather and traffic was fine and arrived in plenty of time. It was a good ride and we arrived in Sanford on time. We had only a 40-minute wait for our car and an uneventful ride and arrived home just before noon.
Drove to Erie on Wednesday after breakfast and a nice visit with Elyse. We stayed with Bob and Cathy which is very convenient and lets us spend more time with them. We had a chance to visit the dock and drive around the Peninsula.
