Our granddaughter Payton arrived a couple of weeks early on January 16, one day after Amy's 21st birthday. New born hospital photos:

After selling the truck we each needed a new vehicle. We found a couple of cars Sherri was interested in at CarMax. We went to test drive and Sherri liked the Ford Focus hatchback which we bought. While working with the Sales Consultant, Brian, we discussed our RV adventures and return to Albuquerque. I told him I was starting to look for employment and he encouraged me to apply at CarMax. I have now been at CarMax for over three months and I am pretty good at selling cars, something I never thought I would do in my lifetime. It keeps me very busy, about 45 hours a week plus I work almost every weekend. I will consider moving to part-time when we pay off some bills and I start to get burned out, but so far I am enjoying CarMax.
We do have some regrets since we gave up the full-time RV lifestyle. We had planned on a lot more traveling and many more adventures, but with the arrival of the grandchild we would not have felt good about being away from Albuquerque for long periods of time.
I will try and post more often here. Sherri and I are both on Facebook if you want to friend us there.
