More tales from the 2012 Aloha Road Trip adventure.
After several rounds of negotiation in which we gave up all but our first born son (“A”, you’re worth more than a house), the final, final, final addendum/agreement/suicide pact was signed, scanned and emailed back to our realtors, the Wonder Women. We do not have a closing date, so let’s stick with the 9th for now.
Furniture gone as of tonight: the 2nd TV, the bedroom suite, “A & H’s” mattress set. Spoken for but not picked up: the TV stand, bookcase and barstools. Basically, we’re down to one lawn chair and my blue chair, but either or both might be gone by tomorrow. Our mattress set is gone Monday.
We shopped Target, Walmart, Dunham’s Sporting Goods, Meijer and MC Sporting Goods for air mattresses. We’ll need them for the next 2.7 weeks and we can ship them to Hawaii for use in our new but empty apartment. As soon as we find one. Currently, we ain’t got a home once we get there, and HPD will kick us off the beach after a few days. At least, they do on “Hawaii-50”.
Tomorrow, “H” and I clean out the kitchen and pantry. I’m afraid it’s going to be beans, rice and odd side dishes from the cans of food we have left. Better stock up on paper plates and cups, too.
Our 2012 Aloha Road Trip T shirts are here! Vistaprint shipped them in 5 days for a nominal fee of $16.00. The slogan and palm trees are on the front, “Hawaii or Bust” on the back. Let’s see how long it will be before someone points out that you can’t drive to Hawaii.
Sunday, we work on resumes. Monday, I start planning the Aloha Road Trip. Michigan to California. Any suggestions?by
