What to do and so many choices. That is the situation we are in. We sold our spacious 4 bedroom home with an in-ground swimming pool 5 years ago. Our kids were all grown and college educated and we were ready for a big change. So we sold our house and bought an RV to travel the country. And that is what we did for 5 wonderful, exciting years. Then coronavirus struck and shut down the US. Being of the 65+ older population, yes we are “baby boomers”…we decided to play it safe and stay in our small 2 bedroom house in Indiana. Plus, we have our youngest son, who is unmarried and takes care of the house while we are gone, that would be able to help us. You know, grocery shopping, picking up our meds and etc.
Then we fast forward, or slowly forward to today. Should we continue our adventures or should we acknowledge we are getting older and stay put? It’s a big decision for us. Our kids live in Washington state, Texas, Ohio and Indiana, we’ve always had fun visiting them while we travel. We are pretty healthy and able to get around and take care of ourselves. We’ve spent a winter in Harlingen, Texas in the Rio Grande Valley which we loved. We were enjoying wintering in the Hill Country west of Austin when the virus hit the US and then we got coronavirsed in after retuning to Indiana. We were going to spend this winter’s months in the southern part of Texas and visit our Texas family while there.
So, maybe writing it down has helped me see things clearer and I’m questioning why I’m even thinking of giving up our adventurous traveling lifestyle. We just wish we could get our COVID-19 vaccines sooner than later.
