Leaving our little pickup in Paul and Xue's care,
we booked return flights to Bozeman to do some de-winterizing at home.
Closing occurred on May 4 and we took a return flight May 10 to set
up a semblance of housekeeping.
The week was a whirlwind of activity as we managed to get several rooms
window treatments installed,
lights and switches modified,
internet connected and security system activated.
Early on May 19,
we started a two-day,
1,200 mile trip back to Montana in the little truck to finish
de-winterizing and to prepare for an upcoming trip to Europe.
It was a hectic two months,
but we realize a lot of people would love to have our problems!
