That’s the phrase that kept playing in my mind today as I stood in the dentist’s treatment room, while the dentist described to Jim and me the extent of the work that needs to be done, and soon, on Jim’s teeth. Time-consuming and expensive. But necessary! So, in the blink of an eye, our plans have taken a pretty drastic turn.
Instead of staying here at Santee Lakes until the beginning of January and then going to Arizona, we’ll settle in here for the duration, which could be four months or more. Due to the way they handle reservations here, this will mean we’ll move sites several times, but at least we’ll be staying in the same park instead of having to find a different park in the same area.
Our first move took place this afternoon, and was planned before we knew we’d be staying on here for awhile. Our new site is much larger, and is on the end of a row, which means we’ll only have a neighbor on one side. The patio side of the Castle faces East, so we’ll have afternoon shade, and we have a nice, large patio area. We are further away from the lakes, but it’s just a short walk to to them.
Even though we won’t be traveling for awhile, there is plenty to do around here in the way of exploring, and now that we know what’s ahead for the next few months, we’ll be planning some day trips.
Life is always interesting!
