Transitioning into this new life has been a little more difficult than I expected. I am preparing to retire from a career that has been somewhat defining for the past 25 years, and at the same time downsize from a 2000 square foot house to a 21 foot RV. And dealing with the looming uncertainty of having no homebase, no destination and no real plan. I guess it's not surprising that I'm a little weirded out.
On Thursday Purple Heart Pickup came and picked up approximately 25 boxes of stuff. I was pretty appalled when they were done, because it didn't really look all that much different. Although yesterday after I got rid of a few more things all of a sudden the house started looking emptier. In one or two rooms at least.
I worked a 1 to 9 tonight ( Saturday) and will work a 6 to 2 tomorrow. That's working out pretty well, Saturdays are a nice day to work, and Sundays are not too bad. And I get two shifts in in one 24 hour period. It's much nicer to do the Quick turn since I have the little rolling home not far from work. I'm kicked back now with my little propane heater and my little LED light going listening to the wind blow. I'm still only going to get a few hours sleep, but at least I don't have an hour drive at 5 AM.
