Things I did Get Done Last Week

This is not my image, however it does give you an idea of what the Trailmanor looks like on the road. We put it up and down several times and it sets up like a breeze. The only difficulties we had was getting it hitched up. Mr Bankerchick is going to take it back to the dealer and have an electric hitch lift??? put on it so we don't unscrew our shoulders from our arms, cranking it up and down. He uses his cordless drill to jack the trailer level, very smart, we learned that from the the dealers. I have it preliminary stocked and we are collecting things for our first trip. Mr B is towing it to Missouri to visit his Mom and I am going to fly back on Thanksgiving Day to visit a few days and then we are going to drive it home by way of Santa Fe New Mexico and the Grand Canyon for a week.
We spent the majority of the weekend working on this so not much got done. We did:
3. Install new patio dog door. Gwennie does not want to go in and out of it so we are still encouraging her with treats. The cat does not want to use it as well, I think if they go out the regular way and get left alone, they will figure it out.
4. The old TV is staying put as the new littler one is in the trailer.
6. Find a new spot for the dog crate
7. Get Gwennie to go into crate in new spot. She is afraid of change. She is using the crate she knows where the comfortable spots are! So I know she is smart enough to use the dog doors.
13. I did get up Monday morning and go to work. It was too ambitious a list! I am going out to Read and Comment on my favorites right now.
