Tim’s dream truck.

Saturday March 5th, 2022. We are on our way to Emily and Alex’s place in Aurora, Illinois Dropping the furniture and some storage things. Then we pick up the RV Monday morning. She needs a name. I’m thinking Dolly, but not sure yet. Remember the dogs’ name is Reba.

We hired the great folks at Hernia Movers to do our move. They moved us into the condo years ago and then again a few months ago from the condo to the apartment in Brookfield. We have been purging and purging to get what we felt we would need for the next 18 months into about 400 square feet of our beautiful, new Alliance Paradigm 310RL. Let’s see, did I do the math right? She is 34’ 11” long and 101” wide – nope, just 294 square feet. No wonder my clothes don’t fit in the closet! LOL

In the purge Emily, our oldest, inherited some furniture and she and her fiancé, Alex, were kind enough to share some of their closet space for boxes of stuff we were not ready release completely. Katie, our youngest, moved to Brighton, UK, so she was purging too and we couldn’t pawn anything off on her.

I was surprised at how unattached I was feeling to the “stuff” we were shedding. Maybe the gentle down-sizing steps we did helped. Before the 2400 square food condo we had a 4000 square foot house including every single homework assignment and art project the girls produced in their 15 years at Prairie School.
