Creating a calendar/to do list
It's two and a half weeks into the calendar we created and we are on course. Rick and I set down a Sunday evening and charted out the time we have left until we leave and what needs to get done before that. Homeschooling, information retrieval, the maintenance and growth of Two Wheel View - Rick's charity while we're gone, etc. Mentally, we could set out tomorrow. Physically, well, we're counting on our bodies pulling through those first days and becoming stronger as the miles pass by us. But the tasks to complete before July15th are a few. We've been focusing on completing house projects in these past two weeks. Why pack away things that have been waiting to be installed in the house? We've finally replaced some light fixtures that we've been wanting to, and sealed up drafty windows. Motivation definitely helps tie the knot on some of these projects. With many things to think about, a time line of when we are focusing on what helps us achieve peace of mind that we indeed will be ready and prepared for our journey.
