So after much decision making, unmaking and remaking, it looks like my time here at the beach is coming to an end, at least for the foreseeable future. That's the bad news. The good news is that the new place is bigger (I'll have a dedicated office finally!!!) and much less expensive. How less expensive? Try getting back into horses less expensive. Yes, I'll be saving that much per month and more. Enough so that if I'm missing the beach, I can book a few days in an oceanfront hotel and pamper myself.
There's some work to be done on the new place before I can start moving in, but I should be finished relocating by the end of June or early July.
