Oh my gosh. After 18 years in this house we have so much stuff.
I started going through everything only keeping what we need to live here and stage house, a garage sale is planned and the goodwill store has a lot of our clothes.
“Why do I have seven drink pitchers?? ok, down to four, will only need one eventually.” That was my day yesterday and included more items than pitchers.
Dan worked on the garage. I know he is overwhelmed with it. All those years of collecting tools and now just unload them?? Trying to narrow it down to ones he may need on the road….I feel the same way about my crafts/sewing stuff. I’m down to 13 small totes of fabric from about 30. That’s still still too many but it’s a start. I’ll keep at it. He will too.
Saturday we went up into Michigan and looked at some motorhomes. Was fun but we still are trying to decide. I wanted a class c (maybe a 30 footer), Dan is thinking a class a diesel pusher (36 to 40 feet). The more we look and not rush into it the better and until the house is sold there is no hurry. We still have the Travel trailer for weekends trips.
Dan wanted to take me to a restaurant up in Dearborn (he works up there) so we headed to the Westpoint BBQ. He loves their broasted chicken. Their french onion soup was to die for and the chicken was really good. Unfortunately I ordered the two piece chicken meal expecting a breast and maybe a wing, and Dan ordered the 4 piece meal. Couldn’t believe when it came that each piece was a whole chicken breast. We actually had 6 chicken breasts, that’s 3 chickens, omg….we couldn’t stop laughing. Guess we should read the menu a bit closer. Oh well, that worked, three came home with us and Sunday dinner was leftovers. They also came with a salad, potato, and a slice of garlic bread (4″x9″) that was huge. We didn’t eat the bread but they filled our bird feeder up nicely so no waste. $24 bill, but was way too much food. If we go back I may have to order off the kids menu.
After dinner we headed to Westborn market. Dan says the guys he works with in Dearborn rave about the place so we wanted to check it out. Beautiful produce, a bakery, deli, meat market, wines, beers, and their homemade cheeses, oh yeah, this is our kind of place. Got some fresh baked pita (no HFC), a few vadalia onions (first crop of the year), huge bell peppers, several cheeses, and a 6 pk of Dos Equis. Tuesday nite baseball viewing will include chicken/veggie pitas with homemade yogurt sauce and a few amber beers for sure. Super day exploring a city that we have never hung out in so it was a bit of what we expect to do on the road. I’m sure if we had been total newbies to that area a tour of the Ford museum and a Detroit Tiger baseball game would have been included. We are really excited for our full time journey to begin, it”s good to have these practice days.
