Well, as several of you know I moved to VA from MD about 18 months ago. I didn’t want to make the move and it took me 5 years to decide to do it. Two of my three kids harassed me to move down near them, “since I’m getting older.” I had my own condo in MD, am quite healthy and active, and had just gotten a divorce after a 40 year marriage ….. I felt oh so relieved when I moved into my condo ….. “it was mine” and I felt, safe and comfy – I savored it. After years of my kids wanting me to move down here (to VA), I finally made the move, but it has been a very difficult transition ….. when I got here, I had to have my teeth extracted as I need dentures (still don’t have the teeth yet), I had to have my sweet dog, Molly, put down (Cavalier, King Charles Spaniel) due to congestive heart failure, my tenant in my condo is moving and it is now up for sale 🙁 , and just last week I took my kitty to the Vet. and he is doing a whole panel of blood work …. diabetes, heart, kidneys, thyroid, etc. She’s 11. I have been on a waiting list for a first floor apartment down closer to my girls for about 6 months now … it’s a low income apartment. I have to go up Tuesday to check my condo with the Realtor to see if everything is OK in order to give my tenant her security deposit back …… I don’t look forward to that at all. I did find a church, but it’s 1-1/2 hrs. away. It will be closer once I move to the apartments, that is IF I ever move there. If it had not cost me so much to move down here, at this point I would move back, but I’m still paying all that off through a freedom debt company.
Thanks for listening, abby (the whiner)
