What a week!

Thursday, August 05, 2010

Hi Peeps,
This has been a heck of a week going from one extreme emotionally to another. As some of you know we are relocating from MA to FL in about a month from now. We have a 7 room house we are trying to downscale, sell, and just throw stuff away so it will fit into a 2 bedroom condo (one bedroom we can't use). Anyhow we have been trying to figure out how to get what we are taking to FL without spending a fortune. If we rent a truck and tow one of the Vehs behind it, it is almost $2,000. So Dave (the hubby)came up with a great idea to buy a RV so we can put our stuff in it, tow his car (I am shipping my veh) and then we would have an RV down there to go to the Keys and use when we come back home to visit. We have been scouring the want ads, craigslist, ebay etc and we found a great deal....so we thought in NH. We talked to the guy and he assured us the RV was great...blah blah blah, there where only pictures of the outside of it....so we took a 7 hour round trip Sunday to go look at it. I can even describe the condition of the inside it was full of mold, bugs, holes in the floor, a crack on the side of the RV. So we went home bummed out not too mention we spent 40 in gas to get there and got stuck in traffic so we wasted a whole Sunday. Then we found another one and the girl decided to have a bidding war, then we find out she did not even have the title in her name as she never titled it like she should have. So we where like FORGET it...she then calls me yesterday while I was at work and leaves me this long message about how she wants us to see it yada yada yada...hello Lady you can't sell it without a title. Well now finally we found one on ebay that a mechanic/dealer is selling he took as a trade and wants it gone as they do not sell RVS and he is paying storage. He claims the motor is strong, good tires, has a tow package and will make the trip...the pictures online are nice...so here we go again hoping this works out! I put a $500 deposit down last night through paypal and we are going to see it tonight down the cape (another hour drive)after work.....Please keep your fingers crossed. I have not even been exercising this week I feel so emotionally exhausted we have so much to do and time is running out....AUGH I just want one thing to work out.....I will keep you updated.

    oh wow Tabatha-you need to take a deep breath. Hope this RV is what you're looking for. My dad has his car shipped to FLA every yr & he stuffs it to the gills with his clothes,etc. Down sizing isn't easy."Stuff" has memories ! Take some time for you-even if it is just a short walk before you go to bed.

    Oh that's a busy time for you. I have moved a few time but have never had to downsize so can't imagine how difficult that is.

    Hope the packing and downsizing go well and that when you get to it the RV is exactly what you need
