Moving On

Uploaded: Dec 27, 2015

Well 2015 is wrapping up and 2016 is less than a week away. It always surprises me how quickly the year ends, when it seems to start off so slowly. The first few months just drag on, probably because our year starts in winter.

Winter is not a fun time here. It used to be fun growing up in New Rochelle, New York when we got snow and I could take my sled to the golf course a few blocks away and slide down the rolling hills. Even looking out the upstairs window of our house at a snow covered yard and trees was a magical sight.

Looking out my windows here, all I see is rain and mud – nothing very glamorous about that. So I've been thinking about moving back East again.

I will be visiting my mother in Maine next year and plan to put a deposit on an apartment in her retirement community. There's a waiting list to get into her place.

She waited almost three years for her apartment. She has a much bigger place than I need. There are more one bedroom apartments than the two plus den she has. Mother likes to live large.

I'd like to be able to look out a window and see snow again, although the weather in the North East has been very warm so far this winter season.

When I moved to San Ramon I planned on never moving again. That was in 1997, almost 20 years ago. Maybe by 2017 I will be ready to move again. Twenty years seems like a good milestone for moving on to the next stage of my life.

Those are the ugliest shoes I've ever seen. And they killed at least a couple of bunnies for them! Noooo!

I have very attractive boots with no fur, but they are leather. Sorry cows.
