Mom Is Moving to Colorado!

It's kind of a complicated story, but the short version is that Mom is moving to Denver from Wisconsin, and we are thrilled.

The original plan was for her to move into the rental next door to us, but when she was here at Thanksgiving we went to look at some retirement communities with the idea of seeing what was out there and what the waiting lists were like. We figured she would probably need eventually to move into a place with more amenities than the Sergeant and I could provide.

Turns out, she fell in love with the first community we looked at, and she decided she would rather move there instead of next door. She could make friends and get established there and enjoy it. So she put her name on the list. She was told it could be up to a three-year wait.

It was three months.

So it's been a whirlwind of visiting and paperwork and putting the Wisconsin place on the market and and and.

I'll be flying out there in another month or so. We'll drive to Colorado together. Can't wait!


  1. Wow! You really look like your Mom. That will be great having her so much closer.

    1. Yep, we do look alike. I know what I'll look like in 20 years. Kind of. Mom takes better care of herself, I suspect.

      I'm excited to have her nearby!
