I'm getting cold feet about moving. I'm isolated as it is where I live now, and wish I had stayed in the mobile home park. Everyone was pretty friendly, and it was easy for me to walk Rocky as there was little or no traffic there. This is nice and I have way more space, but while I have people I wave to when I'm out, I have no real friends here. There are four separate houses (all rentals) off of this driveway, two on each side, and I'm in the rear. Getting old is really difficult because people (and family) like to tell you what to do. For pete's sake, I'm old but I'm not mentally incompetent. I may be a bit physically challenged, but can still get around. Not driving was the worst thing that ever happened to me.
I think there are three lots in the new place, of which we are the first, and as I mentioned previously, there won't be anything built to one side as there is a space where a protected oak tree is situated. And I don't know if I wrote about it before now, but two houses over from ours is also a "NextGen" house, meaning there is the main house plus a small suite of rooms for a parent. So I can only hope there will be someone compatible that I can relate to.
I don't know how high the temperature actually reached today, but it was probably at or over 110F, and that is HOT! The evening is approaching although it is still like an oven out there and I don't even like to open the door. I think we won't be cooling off until the latter part of next week, so I'm definitely stuck inside.
I'd like to write at least one item that is positive in nature, but there isn't much these days. Rocky is one of the positives for me though. He's sleeping on the couch where I'm sitting - he wants to stretch out behind me so he gets me to scoot up to sit on the edge of the sofa! Not so comfortable for me, but he's snoring away right now so he must be very comfortable!
