PREPARING FOR THE VAGABOND LIFE…...

 

STEVE CLOSED HIS COUNSELING PRACTICE IN DECEMBER, 2013, AND WE  DECIDED TO STOP BEING HOMEOWNERS AND 'STUFF'' OWNERS , LIQUIDATE THE HOMESTEAD AND HEAD SOUTH. 
WE REALLY WERE EAGER TO UNBURDEN OURSELVES, AND TO DRIVE OFF INTO A NEW FUTURE.
SO WE GOT THE HOUSE ON THE MARKET BY APRIL, '14, AND LUCKILY WERE UNDER CONTRACT BY
OCTOBER.   WE SPENT THE ENTIRE SPRING, SUMMER AND FALL HAVING  YARD SALES, GARAGE
SALES, CONSIGNMENT SALES, SELLING, OR GIVING AWAY,  HUNDREDS OF BOOKS, OBJECTS, JEWELRY, LINENS, FURNITURE, RUGS, FRAMED PICTURES, ART, APPLIANCES, DISHES, POTS AND BOWLS, CLOTHING,ETC, ETC UNTIL WE WERE DOWN TO A FEW THINGS THAT WOULD FIT INTO OUR HONDA ELEMENT.  BY DEC 15, WE WERE READY TO LEAVE.....BUT THE LAWYERS WEREN'T,  SO  WE HANDED OVER POWER OF ATTORNEY TO OUR LAWYER AND HEADED SOUTH ON CHRISTMAS EVE, JUST AHEAD OF THE WORST WINTER THE AREA HAS EVER SEEN!
