Time is passing very quickly as we approach our departure date! It’s tax season so I am working long hours during the week to keep weekends free for projects. Moray is working his way through the list of tasks, and has managed to shift many of those post-it notes from the top of the table (still to do) to the bottom (done!).
The big task that I have managed to complete in the last few weeks is emptying out the storage unit. A combination of Craigslist, Goodwill, Sol Purpose, Rav 4 and trash can took the various items! Now everything we own is either on Sol Purpose or in the back of my car.
That task led to another – finding a home for everything and creating an inventory so that we know where to find things. I’m sure this is going to be an ongoing process as we discover that we have put things we need easy access to under the bed etc. One very good thing that has come out of this is that rather than take up storage space for the enclosure panels, we hung them in place. This, combined with the lovely spring weather we are having in Texas right now, has led to some great evenings, sitting “outside” in perfect comfort!
Moray has been working on various projects, which I will leave him to write about, but a shout out to Brad Scott is needed. He gave up a whole day to help Moray install the DuoGen. Above and beyond as always, Brad. Thank you!
All work and no play makes me a very unpleasant person to be around, so we decided to spend our last Valentine’s Day in the U.S. in style, by heading to Las Vegas for a weekend. Moray said that he had always wanted to see the Cirque Du Soleil’s “O” and the fountains at the Bellagio, so we crossed that off the list! We also took a trip out to see the Hoover Dam and the Pat Tilman Memorial Bridge. But the highlight of the trip had to be the Fremont Street Experience! Live bands, street performers, people watching – it has to be seen to be believed!
So now we have six weeks to get everything ready to go – well as ready as we can be. Watch this space!
