Crossing things off the list

We have made a list 
of things that we want
to outfit the RV (Harvey)
with before we go full-time.

I posted this a few weeks back..
and apparently my Mom
read the post..
because on Wednesday,
UPS delivered a box
with the GPS that
we wanted..
a Rand McNally 5510!

It was a very nice surprise :-)

Today it was time for a
haircut, so I got that out of the way,
and then met my girlfriend, Karen,
for lunch afterwards.
It is always nice to get
together with her!

George did his running around
this morning..getting propane.
I went for a pedicure before I
came home.

We ordered a few things
off of Camping World..

an RV mat & bag..

and the..
Winegard TRAV'LER DIRECTV Slimline Ka/Ku 
Multi-Satellite TV Antenna

We need to get DirectTV yet,
but our RV dealer will install it
at some point.

We are still going to order
a couple of anti-gravity recliners..
and we are looking at replacing
our mattress with a sleep number bed.
George and I took a ride up
to the Sleep Number store
to see how they felt..they are great :-)

 Things are coming together!


  1. It is always nice when a plan comes together and you guys are sure getting things taken care of. Very nice gift your mom sent..:-)

    Happy belated birthday!! Hope you had a very nice day!!

  2. Looking forward to a review of that GPS unit. We have been thinking of getting one ourselves. Please update!

    Mike and Dee

  3. Birthday gift I assume? Very nice choice on her part. Anxious to hear what you think of it.

    1. No, it was actually for George from my Mom. A 'just because' gift :)

  4. The bed is so important! We spent a lot, but ours is quit comfortable. Great you are able to take your time doing these things.

  5. Your mom is a keeper! Nice proof that she is reading your blog! ;c)

  6. how sweet of your mom!!!!! Nice to see your crossing things off the list :) way to go...

  7. Got to LOVE Mom!!

    Please let us know how you like the 5510. We have been looking at it as well.

  8. We sure do love our slimline satellite dish...especially Al, every time he doesn't have to manually set it up!

  9. Push a button and the dish is set up. Even I can do it! We had a Memory Foam mattress before but now we have a Sleep Number. I like them about the same.

  10. We love our sleep number bed. Someday I hope we get satellite tv but it hasn't made it to the top of the list. A GPS is a necessity. Looks like you are whittling down the list.

  11. We have talked about getting a sleep number also.

    Do you have DirectTV now? If not, remember they have the $100 credit program if you give them someones account number. I'd be GLAD to give you ours!

    WOW! Only 206 days to go.

  12. We have that satellite and love it! It is so easy! :)

    I can't believe how fast the days are ticking down.
