Travel Journal – November 5, 2013
I pictured retirement as kicking back a little, but it’s been a busy week going through items I want to save and others to give away or sell. I have weeks ahead of me doing the same thing as part of getting ready for the adventure.
I find it hard parting with some things just for sentimental reasons, but the reality is I won’t have the room to store much in my home on the road, so I have started to segregate items in different rooms:
- Items I will use in my new home on wheels (Boxed and Weighed).
- Items I want my family to have.
- Items I will sell.
- Items for storage in a small storeroom.
- Items I will donate to others.
- Items to securely destroy, like an old hard drive with sensitive information.
- Finally items for the trash.
Helping In The Classroom
Last Thursday I went back to the third grade! Kind of anyway, I visited one of my grandson’s classes for the morning and helped the teacher grade papers. I will definitely miss some family times as I travel, but I plan on being here in Southern California for important events.
Also, I had lunch with a couple of my long-time coworkers and got caught up on the latest at the office. It was nice seeing them as it’s been a month since my last official work day.
The weekend consisted of a lot of family time and moving a pickup truckload of items to my daughter’s house.
Until next time…Gary
