The plan is: We will live there for a year while we travel around looking for our dream retirement destination. The carrying costs of the condo are small, leaving us plenty of money to travel. And because we will be away so much, we will not get on each other's nerves when we're confined to 900 square feet.

That's the plan, anyway. We'll see.

So the other side of the box (so to speak) is a beautiful new condo. Except the condo is neither new nor beautiful. So we're doing some renovations. At the same time we're packing up our old house and deciding what goes with us to the condo, and what goes into storage for a year or so.

I went up the other day to see what the condo looks like. It may not seem like it to you, but this is progress. Things are getting done. And, God willing, there will be electricity and running water by the time we close on our house in a couple of weeks and move into the condo ... ready or not.
|We have a nice tall ceiling|
Please wish us luck.
