Launch delay…

Years ago when I was still working (that still sounds weird) we had two employees, in a different department, that always complained about things going on in the office. When they retired we thought they would be happy then. Nope. They came back to work with the office on a contract basis! We could never figure out, other than monetary reasons, why someone that hated their work so much would do such a thing.

When people knew about my retirement, about 3 years ago, they would ask if I was going to come back and contract with the office also (which new CalPERS rules don’t allow now)? My joke in return was, “The day of retirement, I will have the trailer hooked up and we will be taking off!”

Well, that didn’t work out, yet. Since there was so much for us to do to get the trailer and truck ready and so much to get rid of at home we shot for the end of January.

This got further delayed due to:

  • Me falling off the ladder and being limited in my activities
  • Ripping out the master shower at home and building a new one from scratch (never having done this before)
  • Waiting for the Snugtop shell for my truck

It turns out that I had 3 fractured ribs not just two and my tailbone is broken/displaced. There is still pain at certain times but nothing like right after I fell!

As mentioned in a previous post, we will not be returning to California to live but we still have our house. Our son, Aaron, will be renting the house from us until he decides he can buy it. If he doesn’t buy it then we will sell it. Either way, the house will be sold so we are looking at it from a resale aspect. Hence the shower redo. Here are two current pictures:

Since I got a new model year truck I have been having to wait for my shell. I ordered it in October! Every time I call for a status it is two more weeks. Sigh.

During the month of January, I was hoping for the end of February. As I write this on the last day of February it is obvious we are going to be delayed again. I have pushed the date back to the end of March.

Maybe… (Don’t hold your breath)
