My husband and I have long argued back and forth about selling the house and retiring somewhere a little warmer and less expensive.
We currently live in Calgary and, being a country girl, it is really starting to wear on my psyche. My vote was to sell and move to BC (where I grew up) but my husband wants to retire in place. He is also worried about losing equity in the home and becoming a pauper… All the things guys worry about, where we adventurers know we’ll be just fine wherever we land.
So what did we do? Well, at first we argued. A lot. Neither one could convince the other of their viewpoint.
Then, we compromised…
What if I spent part of my year in BC, closer to my grandchildren, and part of the year here at home? Perfect! I have recently figured out how to work on our business remotely (as long as I have a good Internet connection), so really, I can go anywhere.
And I will. I’m saving up for a three-week stint in BC in April and there I will be exploring small-town options.
The adventure begins!
