Mrs. Grumpy and I are settled in our new home in a "55 or better" community. We moved in on Feb. 1st. All of the boxes are unpacked. The garage is organized to the point that we can park both cars inside. The cars have been reregistered in the new state and I have my new driver's license. We are learning our way around the area and have found shopping and restaurants.
The new community is everything we were hoping for. On Sunday there was a Super Bowl party in the community center with the game shown on a huge projection screen in the ballroom. We were made to feel very welcome and met a lot on nice people. I have been using the indoor pool and hot tub and the exercise facility regularly. The builder has been very responsive in correcting the minor problems that are inevitable in a new home.
Although we have been retired since June and Sept. respectively, this feels like the real start or our ER. Now, maybe I won't be so .....
