Never got around to posting yesterday, we were trying to put things in order both inside and outside the RV. Had some chats with the people who bought our house. They are so happy here, even with the cool damp weather, big smiles on their faces. They do live in Alberta so will be here off and on over the summer months before they move here full time. Seeing them in my ‘old yard and home’ is not bothering me at all.
I got a few emails and comments on the blog regarding how we were going to fit both the house and the RV on the beach site. We aren’t. We will live here till the house is delivered towards the end of July or early August and it will be like a holiday….well that is my plan at least!! The day before the house arrives we will move about 1/2 block away onto a private rental RV site, where I will pay a monthly amount till we leave for Mexico in October. Once the house is on the beach site, the add a room will be built and when that is done we will have the flooring put down, some more painting done, then we can start to move stuff in. I don’t anticipate it being ready for occupancy till sometime in September, so by the time we get things unpacked it will be early October hence the reason for staying in the RV till next April. At that time the RV will go into the storage yard here at Holiday Park Resort. We have made certain that the RV will fit in front here on the beach site so we can load and unload.
I wasn’t feeling well last night nor this morning, might have been something I ate. Colin has way too much energy & is spending the afternoon washing the RV. Yesterday he washed both cars and the golf cart plus did a lot of work in the yard. Mind you this is the first time anything has been washed since we got back from Mexico. Next I hope to catch up with all my emails, hang in there folks, I will get back to you soon.
Did you read in the news that us Canucks can now bring more across the US/Canada border? New Federal legislation will allow a Canadian to increase their return of purchased goods from $50.00 after 24 hours in the US to $200.00. BIg change, eh! Those away from 2 to 7 days can bring in $800.00 worth of goods, double from $400.00. For those of us away over 7 days it only goes up from $750.00 to $800.00. The increases went into effect on June 1st. Now we are hearing stories that people are going to start heading south to the US for weekends vacations rather than visit somewhere in Canada thus taking money out of Canada. Time will tell, the way our dollar is right now I’d rather stay in Canada.
