Working hard

We have to keep pushing as we have to move the RV into storage tomorrow.  Colin is working on the final unloading of the basement and cleaning of the inside of the RV.  I need to get things put away so I can open the mail and do the bank statement reconciliations as well as the company credit card statements and then I can finally start to work on our taxes.  Then there have been a few very nasty events that have us reeling in shock but I will deal with that over the next few days.  They all involve money but not in a good way.

Saw this on the news this morning. There have been a number of such incidents.  Looks like we will be emptying our basement before we head to Europe.  We likely will be flooded once again.

Just a bit of the bedroom mess yesterday.  We had three more loads like this.

The pile of mail plus other bits I have to deal with.

Yes those are twelve more sundresses ( my uniform ).  I was worried that I could not get anymore in this style so I bought a few here and there and wow they expanded.  I am good for at least three years.  Because they are cotton they do stain and are impossible to clean.  For 100 – 120 pesos ( $7.00-$8.00 each CAD ) they are worth it.

We got a lot of rain today.

Lots of laundry.  I got 7 loads done today including returning it all to the RV.  Tomorrow I have 5 more loads to do and then I am caught up for a week.

Rain in the morning during which Colin cleaned the inside of the RV, and sun in the afternoon, perfect for dealing with unloading the basement and the car.  Then late afternoon these dark clouds rolled in with wind and a lot of rain.  More snow to add to the 150 percent of normal snow pack.

Sorry for the quick post but it is 8:15PM and we need to eat and relax before doing this all over again tomorrow.

    Hi Contessa – Nice to be home, isn’t it?!

    We were just wondering how Colin’s Mommio was doing? Hope she is well. I am sure she is looking forward to seeing you both!

    Sure hope and pray you folks do not get flooded again, this year. Will you park your RV elsewhere to be safer with it, and less stressful for you both. How’s the Mommio? Keep you in our prayers for NO FLOODING!

    Now back home and unpack, good luck, We have not unpacked for 12 years, don’t look forward to it.

    Like George I wouldn’t look forward to packing and unpacking each time. That sounds very labour intensive and I’m all about easy. Although I will admit I pack our summer location stuff each fall and bring in out in the spring but that takes less than an hour. The look of the table scares me, that’s a lot of mail to deal with. It sounds as if you are going to be extremely busy for the next few weeks. Good luck.

  5. Contessa that’s the fun (NOT) part of owning two places and having to schlep things back and forth to put them back into their places. I know how much work you have!
    And yes, the joy of having to do income tax returns at this time of year. I bet you are looking forward to your trip in May. All the best and keep at it!

    Just reconciled bank statements and one account was out of balance by 10 cents – one tenth of a dollar! Having had a checking account since the age of 17 never have I not been able to balance an account. One night when sleep would not come I tackled it again and found that dime! So much comes in and so much goes out – right!?

    The stack of sun dresses are a rainbow of color so you are set for Isla next year. Thankful you are safely home.

    Stack of sun dresses verb should be “is not are” – of sun dresses is a prepositional phrase not the subject! My bad…….
