They say that the three most stressful things in life are moving, having a loved one dying and financial troubles. Well we’ve got two of those. Luckily not a loved one dying. 😉 We should be closing on our house back in Indiana soon, hopefully next week. All the paperwork and financing for the buyer is done, just waiting on a date from the realtors. It’s rather nerve wracking and I just want to get it over with already. Once that’s done we’ll have extra money and I’ll be able to take over payments on the RV park and the RV itself, which means Kris will be able to keep what little cash he has left to pay for gas and such.
I’ve been looking at apartments and houses for rent the last few days because we’re both tired of the cramped space in the RV. I had forgotten how difficult it is to find rentals that will accept 3 dogs. Many, many places around here are one dog under 30 pounds or no dogs. ugh. I found a place today, it’s a duplex on the East side of Salem that sounds just about right for us. Nice private backyard with no one behind the house, the house doesn’t share a wall with the neighbor, the garage and laundry room do. It’s only a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom but with the garage and laundry room, I think it would do for a while. The only problem is that the ad says one dog and it’s a little more than we want to spend comfortably for a place but I’m not sure we’ll find something at the price we want to pay. We’ll just have to try and sell the RV as quickly as we can. I will miss this park. Well some aspects of it. 😉 But right now I can smell sewer… it happens every now and then and not surprising really but it’s not all the time, which is good. But they do events and have lots of benefits to living here. We just wish we had more space!
The sunsets can be amazing.
They do a good job with the grounds and this tent can be reserved free of charge to use. It has a large grill and large island on the other side that is available to be used as well. Complete with tables and chairs!
And features like two off-leash areas for the dogs make potty time a breeze. Right now the pen below is right across from our final spot in the park, so it’s easy to walk across and let the dogs do their thing.
And the spot we’re in now has a nice grass area behind it where we can relax and tie out the dogs while we read, have dinner or just chill. So it’s a nice place and the price is right, but we miss our stuff which is in storage and we both wish we had slightly more space. Though I do have to say that completing the vacuuming in 20 minutes is pretty darn nice. heh….
I follow up with the neurosurgeon next week. I sure hope that they think surgery is a good option for me. I want to try something else besides all the other things I have tried over the past 12 years! My back is quite a bit better than the week that landed me in the hospital but it’s still not great. For example, tonight I trimmed Kota’s fur and then brushed all 3 dogs and that left me in pain from just bending and trust me, I engage my stomach muscles to help! I would like to be able to do normal every day things without ending up in pain.
I went to agility class for the first time in 4 weeks. Two weeks off for my back and one was Memorial Day. I did ok in class but I could definitely tell the next day. Plus my calves were sore! How sad! I ran maybe a total of 3 minutes on Monday and was left with sore calf muscles and I was up to 3 miles before my back went out! ugh…. and the jeans are a little tighter… guess eating all that cookie dough wasn’t such a good idea. lol…
So I’m kind of hoping that we can move into a house/duplex/etc in July sometime. I’m not in a super hurry and I’m not going to select a less than ideal place, but we may not have a whole lot of choices. But for now we have a place to sleep, we have food in the cupboards and we have each other.
