Life would sometimes be so much simpler if I just listened to my gut. I wrote a post not too long ago asking for input on memberships for RV parks. I appreciate all the feedback I got, and I already knew the answer for me, but did I listen? No way. I had already signed up for membership in one of the organizations, based in Washington. How much sense does that make when I plan on going back to the Southwest? Sometimes it's easier to give in to the salesman because it just seems like they're just going to beat you down anyway, no matter what you say. When I was told that I'd have six days to opt out if I wanted to, I folded and signed on the dotted line.
When I was in Sequim over the weekend I checked out what would be my home park, meaning I could stay there for free. I was very disappointed in what I saw and I have no desire to return to that park.
I read the fine print today on the contract I signed, followed it to the letter, and got out of my contract. Whew, what a relief. Another salesman did his darndest to get me to sign up for a different program. I listened for awhile, thanked him for his time and left. Now I have to wait for them to return my deposit to me.
Am I the only one who doesn't listen to their gut? I've done this so many times and it always seems to end up as an "if only." If only I'd listened to my gut...if only I'd gotten up and walked out before signing on the dotted line, if only I'd never returned their first phone call, etc., etc., etc. At least this had a happy ending.
Speaking of happy...sunshine and 73〫today!!! Hallelujah!!! I had a number of plants to plant so I got out in my backyard and planted them. My dog even enjoyed himself.
That reminds me...someone asked me recently on a different post if I was taking my dog with me to Arizona and my answer is YES!!! We've worked out how to get him into Olivia. He went with me to Sequim last weekend and did pretty good. In fact, he seemed to love being there and the change in routine didn't seem to bother him. Usually I let him out in our fenced backyard but I wasn't able to in Sequim. I'd take him out on his leash and he just wanted to walk, so we did. I'm very uncomfortable when it comes to cutting his toenails so they were a bit long. I took him to the vet yesterday and got them cut, so we're going to start walking.
He's been on thyroid medication for years and our current vet checks his blood periodically. Yesterday was the day for that, besides clipping his toenails. I got a call from the vet today saying that he's in great health and all his organs are in great shape. The vet also mentioned that other dogs would be jealous of him. That's good news because with him being 14 I'm thinking our time is limited but maybe we have a few more years left. I hope so because he's the best dog I've ever had and I adore him.
That's all I have for now so this is the end this post.
Loving the sunshine,
