Sign in the front yard. I guess we’re doing this!

Its on the market!  That is a genuine for-sale sign in the front yard!  Man it took a lot of work to get here.  And more trips to Home Depot than I care to recall!  Well, Home Depot and the Snowline Hospice donation center.  I think I’m on a first-name basis with people at both places!

It is kind of hard seeing our house completely empty and thinking about somebody else living there. Even though we are excited for our MoHo travels, it is tough letting a place go that has been such a big part of our lives for so long!  Especially now when its spruced up and looks so good!  I laid every one of the tiles in the picture myself. Plus a lot more you don’t see.  Its a big investment – both in time and in effort.

And for better or worse, a house is a permanent, solid, nobody-can-make-us-leave place to call our own.  One thing I have realized about living MoHo is that you are only as permanent as your next campground reservation.  I never even thought about that before because a house is so permanent.

Its both liberating and terrifying. I can certainly see why people choose to stay a few weeks or even a month at a site to get some of that settled feeling back.

Our private estate sale was such a big success that we don’t have as much to store as we expected. We rented a 10 x 10 but could have gotten away with a 5 x 10 I think.  Oh well. Better to have a bit more space than not enough.
