Thinking ahead for my sewing room
We have friends that were interested in buying a home together and splitting the time in it...sort of a time share deal only we would each own it together. Ive spent countless hours dreaming about this. But then do we want to be so far from family?...Do we want to be away from American healthcare when we are older...do we want to be somewhere we dont speak the language yet.*how easy is it to learn a whole new language when you are older?....etc...etc...Would we be isolated? It seems all the older people I know including my own parents begin to really love the comfort of home as they age...the security of knowing everyone and everything around you...home...your church ..your store...your neighbors...these things seems to be comforting to almost all older people I know...would we be making it hard on ourselves or having an adventure? So, most time I think we will just visit ...then come HOME and keep the nest a nest....a nest for the someday grandchildren....a nest for my children to come HOME to and visit mom and dad...one should be so lucky right?
Its called Travel ,Laura, right??! Its also called buying a home right here at home where I have room( and things) for all that I want right here at home...an art studio, a fireplace, a better yard/acreage with lots more trees and landscaping and privacy...everything on one floor--no more steps...and then hunker down and keep the nest a nest for my family. So much I think about. One of the reasons I love following other peoples blogs is that it is a glimpse into other's lives that gives me ideas and new ways of thinking about things...and I realized that I am not alone...and we all have so much in common..(at least with the people that I follow their blogs!). Peace, sorry I am totally rambling! TOTALLY.
