House and RV update

I think I forgot to mention this, but last week as we were packing up the truck I kept having this funny feeling that the realtor was going to call us on vacation and want to show the house. So, as I was packing, I was also straightening and cleaning up a little. Sure enough, just before we pulled out of the driveway the realtor called and had a showing for the next day!! We made arrangements for him to get a key, and left confident that the house was in pretty good shape -- except for the front lawn which hadn't been cut in a month because our mower was (still is!) broken!

He called last night to give us feedback. This was a younger couple, early 30s, who are looking to relocate from Detroit to Ann Arbor. The man is apparantly a record promoter, and is expecting a large increase in money from investors. So, they are looking for a house suited to their "new stature", whatever that means. They found our home online, and asked for a showing, but according to the feedback from their realtor our home wasn't quite "glitzy" enough for them - but neither were the other 4 houses they looked at. So, nothing new on the home front, but that's OK.

As for the RV, it's been at Duncan RV Repair in Elkhart, IN for the last 3 weeks, where they have been taking care of many minor imperfections to bring it up to "new" condition -- pretty much all of which is covered by the Newmar warranty. The folks at Duncan have been great, and they are going to have it ready for us to pick up Monday morning. YEAH!!

I can't believe that today is the last day of July -- the summer is going SO fast!! The start of school is just around the corner. My boys go back on Aug. 25th, which is 2 weeks before Labor Day, and WAY TOO EARLY, if you ask me! I'm half tempted to keep them home those 2 weeks! Oh well, I probably won't . . .

Have a good weekend, everyone!!
