After a busy week of appointments and two trips to Fort Langley to drop off some stuff at the trailer…We can now say, that yes..
It has all been worth it..
We have persevered through all the sorting, tossing and purging..and purging some more..
Our ‘dream’ has become a reality…
The ‘four feet and eight paws’ are now settled into the ‘rolling white box’..
Doug’s last day of work was on Friday..
A ‘retirement’ lunch..a card filled with good wishes and two gift cards..
a great send off..
We do still have some cleaning to do at the condo and remove the last ‘dregs’ of stuff that is being donated but for now we are going to enjoy our new ‘life’..we can think about that ‘stuff’ next week..
time to enjoy the weekend…
Our ‘home for the next month is Brae Island Regional Park, in Fort Langley..
if it looks familiar..that is because we have stayed here numerous times over the past few years..
The temperatures over the weekend gave us a ‘gentle reminder’ that it is still February..
..there was time for walks..
and time for the Daytona 500..
..we just hung out for a few days..trying to decompress from the transition..but we knew we still had one more task to complete and that was keeping us from truly ‘relaxing’..
We ventured back into the big city of Port Coquitlam today and completed the task of ‘cleaning the rental condo’..There was a large ‘damage deposit’ to be received as long as the condo condition met with the approval of the landlord..
..we passed with flying colours..nothing to fret about..
so this is the ‘end’ of our life in a ‘sticks and bricks’..onwards to the next phase..
