You may very well find what W2R says. DH and I hoped/expected to move very shortly after retirement. We still have not agreed on a place, but were willing to rent here and there for a 6-12 months. Then, our elderly dog started having problems and we realized it would be totally unfair to her.
A dear friend of mine, who retired from St. Louis to Denver a couple years ago, recently said, Oh yeah, I forgot you are waiting for your dog to die. That is not exactly the way DH and I are looking at it because we are, of course, thrilled to have her with us as long as she enjoys life. But, yep, all plans are on hold right now....but we are not waiting. Retirement is too much fun for waiting.
And, we love each day of retirement! Your time will fill up so quickly with things you enjoy.
Just curious....How far a move will you be making?
