I'm hoping for the best case scanario, of course. First things first, and sell the house next spring. But even if something happens, though I can't see what, and we stay here, no problem. I like this house.
But I expect to sell in Spring 2017, hit the road, and some months later return to rent downtown. Meantime we'll have selected the retirement community for later.
The toughest year is now. H has many decisions to make about possessions. Onward.
