fHg, I'm glad your mom is feeling better about her stay in the home, and I hope your son and DIL are okay.
tibbar, I somehow missed reading your post. Good luck with your newest family member. Sounds like she's going to be a bit of work for the first little while anyhow.
We ended up going out to pick up the citric acid and do errands. Came back and I went through the garage and back yard, making a list of everything and labeling them as keep, sell, toss, or donate. I asked for DH's input as I went along. He was a bit reticent about the entire process, and busied himself weeding. I came indoors and did the same thing with the living room and started on my sunroom studio.
Later I showed him the list and the notebook I've been making moving notes in. He didn't say much. Nothing in fact. I think he's having a real hard time accepting our need to move. I am more than ready for it though. I've never been enamoured with the community we currently live in, and we've been here over 20 years.
I am enticing him with ideas and planning for our new condo...which he is insisting we have to go into...and I agree. Neither of us is up to doing maintenance on a house anymore. However we definitely need a 3 bedroom condo that is well designed. I wonder if you can buy 4 bedroom condos? Hmm...3 bedrooms and a den??? I think I'll check into that. It's going to be a real challenge scaling back our 2200 sf home to a 1500 sf condo.
