A busy preparation day

I had a long list of things to take care of today (I am definitely a list maker). It always seems like packing up is a lot more work than setting up for an extended stay. :)

One of the things on my list was to do the laundry.

I have seen this needlepoint in the laundry room for the last month, and really think it represents the beauty of fulltime rving. I'd sure like to have this hanging in my rig.

I have checked off most of the outside chores on my list...pack outside furniture, take the DISH apart and pack it, check the pressure in all tires and inflate where necessary, dump the tanks, partially fill the fresh water tank, stow the water hose and dump hose, pack the bird feeder and stand, shake out and stow the 8X16 outside rug, remove and pack the windshield sun shades, and hook up the toad. About all I have left to do outside is take down and pack the trucker's antenna (which I'll do right after this post) and unhook the electric in the morning.

This evening, I'll start on the inside pack up routine. I'm hoping to be on the road by about 7:30 tomorrow. I was able to pay the electricity bill for the month this afternoon, rather than waiting until the office opens at 9:00 in the morning. The bill for the month was $65, so between the rent and electric, it cost $220 (which comes out to $7.33/day) to stay here. That is very reasonable! I can't imagine being able to stay in a sticks & bricks for that price anywhere.

Since I packed up the DISH and there doesn't seem to be much on local TV, it looks like it is going to be a "Waltons" DVD night tonight. ;) I don't know what kind of reception I'll have on my way to Anahuac, so I'll probably get my fix of the Waltons for the next few days and may not be able to post.

Thanks for stopping by....talk to you later, Judy
