Yeah, we’re working on that right now. We put a bid in on a nice place near where we are now. We don’t want to have to change doctors and all that. It has everything we were looking for and we really had the upper hand in the negotiations because of the market. Our daughter wants to take over our current place, so we won’t have to sell for a while. We’re pretty lucky, really.
We have been downsizing in stages for years. When our youngest went to high school, we started exploring our options. We already had one out of the house at that point with another one right behind her. It took us a couple of years to find something we really liked—we weren’t in a hurry—and then we moved with our youngest to a smaller place. Later, we found a condo and downsized again.
