Making Plans to Head Out

I can't believe we've been in Florida for 7 months.  Gary is in great health, finally, so we are looking forward to heading up north to visit our friends and family who have been patiently waiting for all the hundreds of healthcare professionals to say "you're good to go!"  Friday is Gary's last checkup on his surgery, and he's eating so well, he can hardly remember how it used to be.  So we surely expect a green light. 

Each month, a bunch of my friends get together at each other's homes for a little fun, food and wine.  I have been mooching off them for these past months, so I decided we all just fit into Bella for a cast-off dinner on Saturday.  We all started out living in the same neighborhood, but now only half of us is still there, but we continue to meet as we have been for 6 years now.  It's always great to catch up on each other's lives, hopes and dreams.  Gary is going to the driving range to see if he can swing a golf club again.  He has buds that are waiting for him to play in our future travels, so he thought he'd better practice a little.

We worked yesterday washing slip covers, walls and windows at Michelle's while they are on vaca in Utah.  We're going back tomorrow to finish the laundry, clean out the fridge and wash the floors. That will be our last day of work, but not our last day to see them.  We'll head up again on Father's Day for a last hug goodbye until the fall.  However, we may see them in Pigeon Forge if they can manage it.

Meanwhile, we are just sorting things out, tidying up and looking forward to this weekend.  Monday we start up Bella and drive up to Independence RV in Clermont where they have been holding on to our new ladder for 6 months.  There's an air-conditioner special we want to take advantage of, and a couple of other adjustments and check ups for Bella, and then we'll head up to northern Florida. 

I can hardly wait!
