This is been one of the busiest weeks of my life – both physically and mentally.
This is the view from my office in our new home.
After MKE ended last year, I went through a personal transformation that dramatically improved my life in multiple ways. As a result, last May my wife and I put our house up for sale in Knoxville, Tennessee, took our fifth-wheel trailer to the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri, and started researching homes on the water.
Last Friday we closed on a beautiful lakefront contemporary home on a large lake – a dream I’ve had for 40 years, ever since I rented a room in a house on Lake Austin in Austin, Texas back in 1979.
My wife and I have been exhausted mentally and physically for the whole last week from moving everything almost entirely by ourselves. After closing on our house last Friday afternoon, we took a load of stuff to our new home, and got a good night’s sleep.
Then Saturday morning we left Missouri at 5 AM and drove to Knoxville Tennessee. Our friends helped us load a 26-foot U-haul truck, and we drove till 1:30 AM, then slept in the car at a rest area. We arrived at our RV park on the north end of the lake right at dusk. We already had a storage unit filled with our things from our first load here, so Monday and Tuesday we transferred furniture and miscellaneous stuff in and out of the truck and storage units.
Wednesday morning we had help from a friend here, however, it rained heavily off-and-on throughout this week. It was tough, but it felt great to get it done. Do it now. Do It Now! DO IT NOW!!!
We just got Internet hooked up and working. $60/month for 240 meg of upload/download fiber-optic service. This incredible.
MKE does indeed work miracles.
I have another excellent Guide for this course, Cherylan Hills, and I’m excited about what THIS year’s MKE class is going to bring into my life.
At 65 years old, I feel like my life is just beginning.
