Just a quick note to my Sparkie friends

Monday, June 15, 2020

I know it has been awhile since I have posted a blog... but I'm still here and doing well. The hubby and I have been busy busy busy. We will be moving to AZ this Fall and are selling our Oregon house. Taking care of two places has just gotten to be too time consuming. We need more time to golf :-) We still have our RV also and will be doing more traveling; and will most likely spend several months in the Summer in Oregon. Our daughter is buying the house and we have an RV hook-up on property so that will be convenient. They currently live in a very nice area and prices have kept going up so are going to take advantage of that. They have plans to build new in a couple of years so our place will be great for them in the interim.

Some of you may know that our beloved cat Scamp passed away about a year and a half ago. We had her for 16 years and it was a hard loss really leaving a void. On a happy note, we did get TWO kitties last year that have brought us a lot of joy. Tobie and Sophie. They are now a year and a half old (brother/Sister) and are bundles of energy. We got them a ZiggyDoo Cat wheel and they use it many many times everyday. They have learned how to CATtapult each other off the wheel and sometimes go back and forth tossing each other off. It really is hysterical. I wanted to post the video but see that isn't an option anymore. I do have the video on my Facebook page if you want to take a look. Here is a picture of the two little terrorists when we first got them.

    emoticon I was wondering if you moved. We are also moving in the spring to AZ. Starting the purge & trying to figure it all out now. My family is all there & its time to be around them. We are selling our WA home also. Excited to hear more on how you did it, what you did. It is all so Exciting!!

    In 2015, we tried to move to So Cal - but after 6 months, my hubby came back - Thank god I didnt sell our home at that time. And I am glad we waited. My mom moved to AZ in Feb 2020, right at Covid start. We really learned the importance on being together as a family again. I have traveled there twice since Summer.

    Lucky you.
    Sounds like a wonderful plan to retire to AZ and still be able to visit in OR...win-win!

    Rhonda, it's great to hear this upbeat update! It sounds like you're in for some good times ahead--moving to sunny Arizona and selling your Oregon house--to your daughter! What a wonderful arrangement--you don't have to feel sad about leaving a house with lots of good memories, and you have the RV hookup so you can spend lots of time with your daughter, always with the option of retreating to alone time in the RV. Perfect!

    Your kitties are adorable! CATapulting each other?! They look so innocent in that pic with you holding them, but it sounds like their naughty, fun-loving streak keeps you totally entertained! I would love to see that!

    Your kitties are so stinkin' cute! I love the idea of the wheel. Good exercise for them! Sounds like a great opportunity for you all with the house. Best of luck with the moving and I hope y'all have more golf in your futures! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Tobie and Sophie are so cute! I've not heard of a ZiggyDoo Cat Wheel. Sounds like they enjoy it!

    Best wishes to you with the down sizing. Sounds like the move will support many which is nice.

    emoticon What cutie bundles of fur.

    Congrats on the down sizing. We talk often about a second home near DD ... but alas ... St Louis just doesn't impress us.

    Happy trails. RVing is the ... bomb.
