But events have taken a turn and suddenly I'm at 95 days . The clock started at 400+ days in 2010.
Here's what happened. My original factory delivery date was 12/19, a week after graduation. The factory ceases operation for 2 weeks for the Xmas holidays. My salesperson, Carla, and I talked about this way back in June when I placed my order. As it turns out, she had the dates wrong and the factory actually closes 1 week earlier. I found this out yesterday by accident through a post on the Casita forum. A quick call to the factory confirmed this was the case so I had to re-think my plans.
Deck the Halls and Stop Production! Fa-La-La-La-La .....
Now I had 2 options 1) pick-up in December and miss my graduation ceremony or 2) wait until January 3rd to pick-up. After discussing it with DH last night, I opted for #1. I guess the ceremony is really not that big of a deal. Plus those gowns make you look fat!!!
|See? Even this Size 0 model looks rotund!|
I also really want to be in Austin near Xmas to be with my buddy Sharon and her family. And there is a gathering of about 30 Casitans around New Years Eve at Brazos Bend State Park in TX. This park is home to the University of Houston's 3 observatories. Nuff said!
And as a bonus Larry, a celebrity in the Casita world, will be there. Larry owns LittleHouse Customs and can hopefully accomplish a few mods to the trailer. For example, I know I want to replace the factory faucet with a high-rise model. It should be both fun and instructional to be surrounded by all those egg veterans. I expect it will also be a good primer for my trip to Quartzsite in February.
|The high-rise faucet helps compensate for the itsy-bitsy sink. I'm guessing that knife is from the Norman Bates Collection.|
New pickup date = 12/14/11. So my Texas trip is shaping up to last 3 weeks instead of 2 but ..... I've got time. Ahhhhh, time.
