It all sounds like a wonderful adventure that is just beginning. It especially helps to have good friends celebrating along with you. Good travels to you, and a safe arrival.

Having done a long distance move just 9 months ago, you have my sympathies Chuck! At least I waited a couple months before throwing a cruise into the works though...
Wishing you all the best , for the moving sale, the move, and of course, another wonderful cruise with friends! Happy Retirement!

Thank you all for the warm wishes:

First day of garage sales is over thank goodness. I even had to deal with one shoplifter. I couldn't bevieve it! She carefully folded a beautiful tapestry I had purchased in Guatemala and placed it under her sweater that she was carrying, in such a manner that I wouldn't see it as she checked out.

I nicely told her that it would cost $10 for the tapestry and she got all flustered and left with her other minimal purchase. She probably took other things as well, of which I will never know. Oh well, she undoubtedly needed stuff! She appeared to have very little money.

Bonus I made $785 on the first day of the garage sale, eventhough it was a bit hectic at times. My cruise ship mojito fund is growing, YAHOO!

Thanks to all... I survived day two of the garage sale and did quite well financially. Now my mind is on the cruise and we'll worry about the move upon return. It's off to Seattle in the morning! Time to departmentalize my wee little brain I guess! Good thing I now have money for drinks and money to donate to the casino. What more could I want??? My mother always said "Ignorance is Bliss." Now I know what she meant. lol!

Cheers to all of our cruise mates friends! Be back after July 4th!
