So let me start with the reason.
WE DISLIKE WATERVILLE MAINE.
Once we got moved in and settled and realized we made a mistake it took us about 5 more months to actually say it outloud.
When we applied for part time jobs, one of the prospective employers told Paul "we do NOT hire Massachusetts people" but he used a derogatory term in describing MA people.
We swim daily at a health club here in town and we are called "carpetbaggers".
Once an outsider, always an outsider..........at least that is what we experienced.
We bought a house in a 55+ community in the Tampa Bay area.
It is a huge neighborhood with 2 pools, clubhouses, fitness center, theater etc..
There are 1400 homes in this community. There are 11 phases and we bought in phase 1.
So, the house here in Waterville is "under contract".
We close on May 19 and make the trek south beginning the 20th....paul, cat, dog and me in the Hyundai Tucson. Would it be a bad thing for me to put cat and dog in the THULE roof storage container?
We hope to make it to Florida destination by mid day on Sat the 22nd.
Our first night will be in the Baltimore or Richmond area.
Our 2nd night will be in the Savannah/Brunswick area
Our 3rd night with God's blessing we will be in our new home.
And our son, whom i love dearly said "what makes you think you will like Florida?" very encouraging huh?........not!
