Welcome to my new adventure!Wow, midlife, I’m sure like myself if you’re in this stage of life there are changes all the time. Some are exciting & some are downright scary. Those changes are what we will explore together in this blog.
Exploring Changes During Midlife:
Spouses Disability and Illness
Redecorating the Cozy Condo
Learning to live in a community
Learning to be on my own
Spouses Disability and Illness:
My scariest change in life right now is my husband of almost 34 years is disabled, on oxygen, and the last stages of a disease called COPD. Since his disability started about four years ago, we have downsized twice. From a 10 room home on seven acres to a small apartment in town and now we have purchased a condo in a Community.
Redecorating, Community Living:
Redecorating the Cozy Condo to be comfortable and welcoming! Learning to live in a community after raising the family in the country. Also, learning to be on my own before the good Lord takes my spouse home.
Welcome To My New Adventure:
So, the first adventure, doing some remodeling of the Cozy Condo. Also learning to live in a community. I predict living in a community will be harder on my spouse than myself. Due to the fact, he is used to country living and myself I was raised in the city.
I have learned to do things, go places on my own. Although after 33 years that is strange and at times very lonely. Also, have learned I am a strong woman and a survivor.
