Mr. Eva and I maybe moving closer to my 2 sons soon. We are looking at senior housing and if all goes well, we will be downsizing from 3 bedrooms and 2 baths to 1 bedroom and 1 bath. Right now, we are 45 minutes drive from my oldest son and nearly an hour away from the youngest. This move will bring us to within 12 miles of the oldest son, and will shorten the drive to the youngest son's home also. Mr. Eva's son lives in Texas, so we are still going to be a great distance from him, unfortunately.
Right now, I'm a little frantic because we will have to get rid of almost everything we own. The senior apartment is very small (which will be a joy to take care of), but just does not have enough space for our two Lazyboy couches, our large dining room table and chairs, our computer desks, my cookbook collection, my Christmas Village, our large artificial Christmas tree, and tons of other things!
On the upside, I'm learning to navigate Craigs List and have started listing things in hopes of selling them and acquiring the cash to move the items we are keeping and to purchase two recliners and a breakfast-nook size table and chairs.
The next few weeks, if we do move, are going to be hectic, so I will apologize in advance for the likely decrease in my posting and commenting on your blogs. Once we are settled in, I promise to be right back at it!
