Unfrazzled

Yesterday, Mrs. Lion wrote about the pressure she is feeling. We have to find a new place to live before the end of April. Our landlord decided he wanted to move into the house he is renting to us. This is a huge blow because we put down a lot of roots here. We need to stay fairly close to our current location. I depend on some pretty specialized medical care that isn’t available everywhere.

Since Mrs. Lion works from home and I’m retired, we have a lot of geographic freedom. As long as I am within an hour or two of the city, we should be fine. That leaves a lot of potential locations for us to check out.

Neither of us likes change. I’m as easily frazzled as Mrs. Lion when it comes to moving. The biggest issue for me is the cost. It could easily wipe out most of my retirement savings. We live on a fairly tight budget. Moving to a new house was not in our planning. We expected to live here at least eight years. We’ve only been here four.

Anyway, we’ll figure out a way to get through. We always do. It’s just not going to be a lot of fun for a while.

That brings me to the main reason I’m telling you all this. Life is way too short to let any distractions get in the way of living our lives together. I’ve been particularly aware of my mortality lately. I’m determined to live as distraction-free as I can. I also want to help Mrs. Lion have a better time too.
