In April of 2011 I visited mother in Florida, and she decided to sell her house in The Villages and move into a beautiful independent living development in Melbourne, near my son Paul. So I stayed 2 1/2 months to help her. Sold her house in 1 day, closed in 3 weeks and moved in and got settled. I stayed 3 weeks with her in her new home. She’s trying to adjust and some days are better than others. She has a lovely 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment, her own laundry room and granite kitchen, indoor and outdoor pools, fabulous food in a beautiful dining room, movies, activities, a bus and a Town Car with chauffeur, but she still has her own car.
As soon as I got back to Boquete, I had to pack up and get ready for the move down to my new condo. More to come on another post.
