I am probably going to move south. Cleveland had been on my short list but, winter has already taken its toll. My back hurts all the time & I do not want to go back to taking pain pills.

I am planning a trip to Tennessee in the spring & have been talking to a realtor there. There is still a lot of researching I have to do before I go. The reality is that I won't know what's there until I see & investigate the possibilities.

We had to turn in paperwork to be re-certified today. I will know soon, but am fairly certain the settlement for the car accident will put me over the edge & rent here could go up over $100. It would still be cheap but not worth the inconvenience of living so far from town. I can pay the same higher price & move into town.

It's still an up in the air situation for me.

Tennessee should be beautiful in the spring. (:

Sorry to be such a downer. I guess I just needed to express myself somewhere.

Oh no, I am sorry you are having to deal with this. I know it is easy for me to say, but try not to borrow trouble by getting locked into possible diagnoses. I will keep you in my thoughts.

I will be moving west in the Spring. I've been packing on and off for the last year. I will try to schedule movers before the end of this month.

I have spend the last year obsessing about where I want to live in retirement. Apparently, every place I decided would be right for me (Oregon, Washington state, Colorado) also has rapidly increasing real estate prices. I'm pretty sure this is because other retiring Boomers are relocating to those states. While I will be okay financially, I do not want to spend too much on housing. I guess I had better pick a place soon.

The only thing special for the year is that the wife and I are planning an Amtrak ride to the west coast and back. This is on my bucket list to do.

I may be getting laid off in February, or as my company euphemistically calls it, "displaced". It is going to be a slow winter, and I suspect my boss may take advantage of it to get rid of me. If so, it will be fine, I will get a severance package and will be able to transfer to another division.
If all goes well, my plans include a 5 day hike through the Smoky Mts in October, a road trip to NW Arkansas to scope it out as a possible retirement location, taking a small business startup seminar, attending APDT conference, and finally looking at making plans to exit the corporate world, ideally in the fall of 2017. Busy year.

I've always wanted to do that but it's extremely expensive. I hope you get to do it.

I've been calling the apartments I want to move to in Virginia and trying to get up the nerve to face moving.

But the most recent event--and it happened today--was that my new smart phone arrived. Now I have to learn how to actually use it.

Praying all turns out good. This is a good place to rant or rave or just unload.
