Default 1st TR for our new FL place

DD Samantha & I fly into Orlando this coming Friday afternoon for our first trip to our new FL place. If all goes as planned, DH will drive out to join us early in the week. He is bringing tools & supplies for making furniture, painting and possibly upgrading the bathrooms. DD may fly back with me after our trip or stay with DH as there is an art camp the following week. We recently opted to switch DD to home school, so we have far more freedom in scheduling enrichment activities now.

This trip will be a mix of visiting friends who live in the area, time in the parks and consignment treasure hunting to furnish the new place. I also anticipate some shopping for household basics, as the plan has switched to using it as a private vacation home for awhile. Financially, renting it out still may be a preference (or necessity). Still, it would not hurt my feelings to figure out how to keep it without renting it if we can.

And we are all looking forward to time in the pool. DD is really looking forward to the lazy river & so am I! Plus I'm hoping DH arrives sooner rather than later. There are the obvious reasons, plus his arrival means I can book some time at the on-site spa to try out their services.

Just 4 work days till vacation!

Thanks everyone! I have also been looking forward to this trip & this TR.

We received some unwelcome news yesterday that changes our plans for next week. My aunt unexpectedly passed away, so we will be driving to SC for services & time with family. Depending on how Dad is doing, I still think we will stop in at the new place for a few days vacation before I return home.

Given the uncertainty, I cancelled our flights to Orlando & received a credit with Spirit, so that went well. My tentative plan is to rebook a flight just for me for coming home rather than making the 16 hour drive solo, but I am just not certain enough to book that flight just yet.

Here's hoping I'll be back in a few days with another, more positive, update.
