Deck Is Finished!

Daddy and Grandpa finished our deck last week. It's really BIG!
Wow, I have a great view from up here! I'm king of of the deck!


Daddy is now working on a porch underneath the breakfast nook.

It was another very busy weekend. Mama cleaned out drawers. Daddy started cleaning out the garage. They both worked on cleaning up the yard. Yesterday, we had turkey! Can you believe that? Mama says she is cleaning out the freezer.

Mama says today is our only "semi-normal" day this week. The men are coming tomorrow to start staining the house. It's going to be crazy here with men on ladders peeping in our windows.

Why are we doing all this work? Well, we are preparing to sell our house. Yep, that's right! Our house is going up on the market very soon. We are going to buy a much smaller house after this one sells and we won't have a mortgage. Mama says Daddy will be able to retire sooner if we don't have a mortgage. I retired after only 8 races and retirement has been a lot of fun for me. I hope Daddy can retire early too! We are a little nervous leaving our home, but it will be an adventure. We may even live in the RV while we look for another house. Daddy thinks that will be fun. Mama doesn't think it will be all that much fun, but at least we have a place to stay while we wait for our new home. We hope our house sells this year, but with the economy it could take a long time.
