So, we’re keeping the house and renting it out. Luckily, we found a lovely young lady who will take care of the fish, mow the lawn and shovel the snow. She’ll move in in mid-August, and move out at the end of June, so that will give us impetus to keep travelling and see more sights, visit more countries and meet more people.
Now to pack things up and make room for our new tenant. Luckily, we don’t have to move everything out, but she does have some of her own furniture, her own dishes and pots and pans, and of course, all of her personal belongings.
We’ll need to pack up some of the family heirlooms, any personal pictures, and oodles and oodles of other ‘stuff’, some of which we question the logic of keeping – especially as we seem to pack more and more and more! There’s another bit of a problem that pops up – where do we put all of this? Fortunately, we can keep one of the bedrooms as storage, the loft in the garage, and the shed in the backyard. We also utilize some of the space out at the cabin, although there isn’t much room out there yet.
We could very possibly need to live out at the Good Spirit cabin when we return to Canada, so we’re hoping we’ll be able to move in, put in plumbing (VERY IMPORTANT!), and do a bit of renos in the spring.
