At first I was a little worried. I've never even visited Virginia before. I know absolutely nothing about it. Luckily I have several friends who lived in the area and even worked at the hotel I'm going to. They were great about explaining the city to me, recommending apartments to consider, and being honest about where we should move to (high crime areas v. safer areas). I ended up deciding on a a suburb of Richmond that will be about the same commute as what I already have. It's close to a really good hospital (about 5 mins) that will be perfect for my Dad to receive his healthcare. We picked out his doctors and everything.
It will be slightly warmer weather, which I believe will be good for my Dad. He doesn't do well in the cold. I am also really excited about my new apartment complex. They have a swimming pool (SCORE!) and a really nice walking path through a sort of wooded area. They also have a big exercise room. I think it will be easier to stay active with so many choices and with weather be a little warmer.
|Minus the water. LOL! It was just sitting up there.|
Nor do I need every single card or picture we ever drew Mom and Dad. I did keep a few of the favorite ones though.
I work until Wednesday, and the movers come at 8:00 AM Thursday morning.
On a side note, I started Weight Watchers again and am already down 5 lbs. When things calm down a little, I will update you on more.
