Time to Move
Mrs. Grumpy and I are finally about to make our long planned downsizing move. We have sold our 4 bedroom, 2 story colonial in Maryland and will move into a 2 bedroom and den single story home in a "55 or better" community in Virginia. Settlement on the new home is this Tues., settlement on our existing home is on Thurs., and the movers will be here on Feb. 1st. We are just about done with all of the packing.
This has been a three year process. We visited a number of states that we wanted to consider for retirement (Nevada, Arizona, North Carolina) plus many developments in the D.C. area. We finally decided to "retire (nearly) in place" to maintain ties with our friends in the D.C. area. The new house is about 50 miles from our current house in a far Virginia suburb of D.C.
I will be off-line for a few days on either side of the move due to packing and set up of cable access at the new house. I'll report on how it went when we get reestablished.
