I just came back from Boca Raton ( my old home of 30 yrs.)
I haven't been posting because other than 5 or 6 months a year here in Rockland Maine-
it is HORRIBLE.
I hate it.
It has been pure torture in ALL the remaining months.
There is no place better to be for those summer months & fall.....
the rest of the time....OMG, it's the worst.
And I haven't posted because I have prided myself on being honest in all my post.
I have had nothing nice to say,
so I didn't want to post because I would sound so NEGATIVE.
My mother reads my posts,
and I didn't want her to internalize my own mistake of my move here.
was it really a mistake?
My move included precious years with her.
And they have been wonderful.
But I can't HOLD UP inside the house for 6 months.
I go crazy.
I felt like an idiot when I was in Boca.
It was so beautiful.
Green & manicured.
I like manicured.
There is nothing manicured here.
I came up here to be with my MOM,
but other than my relationship with her.............
it is the worst move I could have ever made.
I guess I needed this to appreciate where I came from.
I have learned my lesson well.
My daughter was considering a move here, and I strongly discouraged her.
It would be a career killer.
There is no work here.
It would all but destroy her (financially, relationship wise etc etc)
That is what has been going on with me
PS my marriage is doing just fine.
Now that he has been to Boca Raton he is not loving it here either.
Who knows what the future holds for us.
Follow your BLISS.
It's great advice,
but it would be nice if it came with
