I’ve done a fair amount of traveling in my life. Via vacations and business trips I’ve been to New York City, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Dallas, San Francisco, San Diego, Mexico, Toronto, Flagstaff, the Grand Canyon, the Petrified Forest, the Ozarks, the Florida Keys (and most of Florida), Upstate New York, New Orleans, the Shenandoah Valley and National Park, every Civil War battlefield east of the Mississippi, and many, many, beaches. I will likely add many of these places to my RV travels bucket list to visit again but, for the purposes of this list, I am focusing on national parks. I’m sure we will visit Washington, D.C. again, as that is definitely a must for the grandchildren.
About nine years ago I started a little exercise in downsizing my life. Most of it was due to moving from Florida to North Carolina, to Arkansas, to Virginia, and finally Indiana – it was done out of necessity. Each step along the way I would get rid of more stuff. You’d think by the time I ended up in Indiana I’d have next to nothing left, and I am pretty close! As far as furniture goes, I only have one Queen Anne chair, ottoman, and a TV stand that are still with me from Florida. The rest is stuff I simply haven’t wanted to part with (some crystal and some other items I just love), plus I’ve purchased a few things in the nearly four years I’ve been in Indiana. In preparation for moving into an RV full-time, I find myself back in the process of downsizing once again! Woohoo! Continue reading “Let the downsizing begin!”
