Home Sweet Home: Time to move on
Well, as many know who have been reading this web site, and more specifically, some of my ramblings, I am approaching, in one month a full year of doing what I want when I want.
It has been a bit clumsy since my other half is still working, and will be for another month or so. I have learned to slow down and rest, she is still on the "fast track." What she wants done yesterday, I want to wait until tomorrow to accomplish.....so there has been friction to some extent.
We have not agreed on much over the years, BUT we have decided to make the move to a restricted age community about an hour and a half away from where I have spent the last sixty two years of my life.
We have looked at many houses and are having a difficult time deciding. As I contemplate the move and look around at what we have accumulated at our present house for the last thirty five years, I can understand how many seniors are overwhelmed and just stay put!
What do we do with all the "stuff!"
Personally, I would rent a dumpster and just fill it up. I do not understand the mind set of paying to move things that are never used.....go figure!
I am looking forward to the huge clubhouse and all the activities, golf, billiards, clubs, swimming indoors and out, you name it. I guess most of all I am looking forward to developing some new friendships, and moving on to the next phase of this trip we call "life."
I will keep you posted from time to time on our progress.....for now HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ONE and ALL!
Wendy: Richardo, I cannot even BEGIN to imagine moving right now. Like many, you accumulate your "stuff" to fit into every nook and cranny of your home. Not a hoarder, but I have lots of stuff. Dumpster? No, not yet!
Thanks for sharing!
