Retirement: iPlan B
Do you have a plan B? When we retired I thought we had a pretty good plan.
Buy a small townhouse and live in the summer cottage (in the UP) the rest of the year. We have spent a considerable amount of time (and expense) getting everything just the way we want and its been great!
However, in the last couple of years, I've noticed a few problems.
Occasionally my left hand shakes, sometimes I lose my balance unexpectedly and a couple of other things that I´ll leave out. It wasn´t completely unexpected when the doctors told me I had Parkinson´s Disease. As the symptoms advance I see we may need to rethink our plan.
Can we still manage living in 2 places? Should we move to Florida (it would keep me more mobile in the winter)?
I read once, people that live best are the ones that know how to adapt to Plan B. I just need to figure out what that is going to be.
