First...welcome to my blog Sharon, Kimberly and Jeanne...just in time for my first meltdown. More than likely the first of many.
One of the things I didn't mention yesterday that I think was a huge piece of the meltdown was the Magellan motorhome in San Diego that fits the bill of what I want, except for price. I've talked to one of the sales people a couple times about different scenarios of me buying the Magellan while living in Seattle. Turns out I was really stressing myself out about that particular motorhome, i.e., its location, as in, do I fly down there and check it out?; I don't want to learn to drive a Class A in a city I'm not familiar with; I don't want to drive over any mountain passes this time of year; and on and on and on ad nauseum. I've decided to pass on the San Diego motorhome and I feel so relieved.
Thanks for all the comments yesterday...they were all helpful and I really appreciate the feedback. What a group of people you/we are!!
In taking care of myself today I went and worked out, went to Panera Bread afterwards with five ladies from the work out group (I drank water, no bagel), and the best of all...I got a massage!!! The repetitive motion of shredding pictures after I scanned them has created a problem in my left shoulder and neck so I'm supposed to switch arms. Fortunately, now that I'm scanning slides there is no shredding.
Question: How do you tell a dog used to eating at 5:00 (he comes searching for me at 5:00) that 5:00 is now 4:00 so it isn't time to eat?
I'm going to continue scanning pictures into my computer and downsizing. I think I'll take a trip somewhere sunny and warm within the next three months or when I hear snow in the forecast in the Seattle area...by airplane!! Maybe I'll follow Cruzin2some's example and have a garage sale or three. I've offered to let them spread their expertise around and help me out, but I think they're ignoring me (which I totally understand).
I'm happy to be part of the RV community and I'm loving reading about your adventures.
More sunshine please,
