Almost there (again)

This past month has been filled with appointments and more appointments.  We are waiting to pick up one last (I think) report so we can turn our papers in.  We still have some appts that we thought would be a could idea but aren't required.  We've had shots and boosters, our teeth are good, our eyes are good, our ears are good, our general health is good, our labs are good, our hearts are still beating... they didn't check our brains.  So if we can just get that one last med report we should be okay.  The rest of our papers have been filled out forever it seems like!

Our lists have grown.  Every time we check off 1 thing, 2 more things are generated!  The level of detail that needs to be attended to is amazing.  We've met with a CPA for our taxes, we're in the process of getting local POAs taken care of, and we're closing the business.  I'm pretty sure I won't be working again (!) and if Cameron wants to when we get back we'll just do it on a Sched C.  Simplify, simplify.

We learned that there is generally at least 1 month after receiving your call to your report date, and may be up to 6 months depending on where you're going, visas, shots, etc.  We plan to put our papers in this weekend or next week (depending on when we get that last report), be available in September, and then wait to see what happens!

We found some cheap flights ($360 taxes included, RT pp) to Hawaii so we are going on 24 Aug returning on 1 Sep.  That will be a nice change of pace... things have been super busy.  I did get my Family History done to the point I wanted so that I could make a presentation DVD for Gil, Linda, Tom, Tess, and Stacy and her family.  Everything has been scanned and I feel like it's in good enough shape to leave.  I know it's never done, but this part really needed to be organized to pass on to others.
