Best part of being old and retired: It's easier to hold your liquor. Safe travels and good luck. Make sure that U-Haul is securely locked up.

Yesterday we finished the trailer and unloading both vehicles.
I then took the trailer to uhaul and went to Home Depot to buy a small 7 cuft chest freezer.
All of our frozen food from back north was in 2 large coolers and most was thawing.
Everything was safe, but I needed to get it back into a freezer quick to avoid spoilage.
Our side-by-side fridge/freezer wasn't large enough for one of those coolers, let alone both.
Worked out really well.
Not too large and there's room for additional down the road if needed.
I have a ton of homemade soups, stews, and sauces, etc.
We need to work on eating those and I need to stop making more until we deplete the current stash.  lol

Donna started unpacking boxes while I was gone.

Last night I worked on the hot water tank problem.
Tripped reset on the thermostat.
I reset it.
This is the 2nd time this has happened.
I will monitor and replace it if it does it again.

Today we are chilling a little but also emptying some more boxes.

The mountains (yea - plural) of boxes we have is outrageous!!!

A tip to all of you - go through your belongings often!!!
Throw out, donate, give away, etc.
Don't get to the point we were.
 :rotflol: :rotflol: :rotflol:

New windows (hurricane proof and thermal grade) being installed next Monday.

Still waiting on the new bedroom set from Ashley's we ordered 3 months back.
They said 14-16 weeks when we ordered it.
However, the small bench/chest was supposed to be in stock with a 2-4 week delivery and it just showed on Wednesday.  lol

It's Friday - Very happy to finally be here and I'm not going to kill myself today.  I have 4 boxes of liquor to locate and unpack.   ;D

Enjoy Mac.  Keep your sun screen on and a hat.  😎
Can’t wait to see your first fish pictures…  ;D

Finally making a dent in the mountains of crap.
Maybe in a week it will either all be put away, or thrown out, or taken to Goodwill.
Need to hit the Lowes and get a t-stat for the hot water tank.
This one keeps tripping.

Tomorrow the new windows get installed.
