You’ve Gotta Have the Sad Times To Appreciate the Happy Ones

The last two days have been emotional, you guys. Yesterday we got the Falcon all cleaned up and posted for sale. If we sell it and the motorcycle, we can get our RV and that is step number one in our current plan. We spent the day at the car wash and we just sat in it for a while reminiscing about all of the good times we have had in it.

Losing the Falcon is going to be rough. We pretty much spent the first half of our relationship in this van. We had our first kiss in this van in a Publix parking lot. We fell in love in this van. We have spent hours in this van next to rushing rivers in the mountains playing video games and laughing. The Falcon is a huge part of our history and lives together. It’s us.


We are trying to just focus on the end result. Selling it will help us reach our dreams and it will be worth it in the end, right? As sad as selling it will be, we are anxious to actually get it sold so we can take a step forward in this process. It will be pretty bittersweet for both of us.

Speaking of bittersweet, the RV that I have had my heart set on is probably getting bought by someone else tomorrow morning. We have researched and looked at so many of them in our search. This one was the only one that we had been in that felt like it could be home. I think about it all the time. No others have compared. It’s the one.

Today we stopped to talk to the guy selling it because we wanted to look through the meticulously kept maintenance log and let him know where we were with getting the money together. He let us know that someone else went today to try to get a loan to buy it and may be coming to get it tomorrow. I know that we will end up with the one we are supposed to have and things will work out the way they are supposed to, but dang. That hurt my heart.

Now excuse me while I go look at upholstery fabric online because what are RV designer/decorators even thinking?
