I'd put in an offer for a home in Florida. After going back and forth, it was accepted today. Closing is set for August 15, movers coming August 31. I am so excited. I'm proud of my daughter in all of this. This is not a move she wanted. Even more, it is a move to a retirement community, so there will be few people her age around. She is taking it all very graciously, finding the good. The pluses for me are less money being spent on housing. Everything is cheaper there than the West Coast. We'll be closer to my father's family and farther away from my mother. The chances of getting a job should I desire are much higher there since 55 is relatively young compared to most of the workforce for that area as opposed to here where I've aged out. The minuses are the new house is much much smaller. I'm not used to living in a community where I can't do what I want to my property. I'm going to have to give up some furniture I truly love because it just won't fit. And, of course, moving in general stinks and moving across country is really a frightening endeavor. So, wish me luck on this new endeavor and let's hope my daughter survives the move and gets her life totally on track there.
