At 73 and 69, my spouse and I are making some major life choices. If you have kept up with us the past few weeks you know that we have made a major cross country move. We sold our dream house of 15 years, packed up and made a trek of over a thousand miles with my 92 year old mother and 3 precious pets.

The house we have moved into is pleasant, and half again the size of the one we left. Trying to stuff ten pounds into a five pound bag becomes something of a challenge. We brought more than we have room for more and that will require other choices. It is time. We have agreed that age will always get the upper hand, but we still have the hutzpah to challenge time and try to win a few more of the games life offers.
