|Pool and hot tub in Nevada house.|
Below are the photos of the Henderson, Nevada vacation rental we’ll be moving into this upcoming Wednesday after a five-hour drive across the desert. We posted these photos many months ago, doing so again today for our newer readers.
A charming house with great reviews in VRBO.com located in the fabulous Green Valley Ranch area in Henderson, a suburb of Las Vegas, will definitely serve our needs for eight days over the holidays with family and friends coming to visit for the three days between Tom’s 60th birthday on the 23rd and Christmas. We couldn’t be more thrilled.
Over the next two days, we’ll busily pack for the eight days in Nevada, finish the balance of our paperwork, pack the food and cooking supplies we’ve accumulated while in Scottsdale, and the hardest part of all, decide what we’re leaving behind in one final bin we’ll leave at son Richard‘s house.

This is the hardest part. Once we leave the vacation house in Henderson on the 27th, we return to the vacation house in Scottsdale for our final packing before leaving on January 1st for San Diego to ultimately sail away on January 3rd. Any items we don’t bring to Henderson now become a part of our luggage, an impossible scenario.
|Casual dining and lounge area off of the kitchen.|
We have warm clothes that we aren’t bringing (Good thing we brought them along for the cold weather we’ve experienced lately), piles of papers to pass off to my sister Julie who’ll spend Tom’s birthday and Christmas with us as well.

Julie will keep our medical files with test results, our health care directives, and stacks of legal documents that we completed on Friday. We’ll leave our tax prep receipts in a banker’s box with Richard.
|The kitchen is dated, but serves our needs.|
Oh, it goes on and on. There’s so much to remember much of which I listed on a Nevada “to do” and others that require me walking around and “looking” at everything to further remind me. Thank goodness, my memory is serving me well.

Not only will we move into the house below, but we’ll get ready for Christmas, baking (for guests), decorating (just a little), and go to our dentist appointments for final cleanings. After the dentist, Tom has an appointment at a local travel clinic for his last TwinRix vaccine.

Plus, we’ll complete the arrangements for the sale of Tom’s car (prospective buyer in the works), hopefully, to transpire while we’re in San Diego over the last two days. If that doesn’t work out for any reason, of course, we have a Plan B.
On January 2, we’ll take the SUV to a local dealer and sell it for whatever they’ll give us. Apparently, there’s a shortage of clean used vehicles. After pricing it at Edmunds, we feel confident that we will sell it for close to the dealer’s wholesale price. It’s a 2010 model and in perfect condition. We’re already prepared for a low offer accepting this reality as part of the process, especially after doing so poorly at our estate sale. Ouch! Nobody cares to pay what we feel “our stuff” is worth.
Here’s the link to the details and photos about the Henderson home. (Please excuse the formatting issues. It’s rather tricky copying and pasting photos from other web sites. As I’ve mentioned in the past, web design is not my forte).
