What do you think of when you read this word?

  1. Stretching or exercising in a class or on your own

  2. Disco dance party

  3. Walking or running to a destination

  4. Hurry! Get out of my way!

  5. Changing your physical position in a purposeful manner

  6. Packing up and moving to a new home

How about all of the above?

#6 is the one top of my mind because we are moving to a new home in March. This is big for us!

We have been in the same house for over 30 years, more than 1/4 of the house's life has been with us as occupants (it was built in 1923) and we are only the third family to have lived in this house. Most of our life together (husband and I) has been here and our far-away family has mostly visited us here. For almost half my life I have lived in this house. Wow.

We feel sad and will miss being here as we have so much love for our yard (banana tree! hammock!) and home, and our neighbors on this street. The upside to leaving our life here behind is that we are only moving 11 blocks to Sellwood. We will still see everyone we know, shop at the same stores and visit the same parks and attend the same yoga classes. And our new home is all one level and no yard. Basement laundry will be a thing of the past!

Let me know if you'd like an invite to the housewarming party and you can visit the home where we will begin our third act of "aging in place".

Condo Sweet Condo!
