Most of Florida is jam packed right now. Our closing date is a week from this Monday so we know our time here is severely limited. Nick and I decided to pretend we were tourists and utilize our condo as the resort-styled community it advertises itself to be. This is working out fine for us since the traffic outside this gated neighborhood is horrendous. Going to the beach is totally out of the question.
Neither one of us wants to cook anymore. We don’t want to clean the kitchen either. So every day we’ve been shopping at the organic supermarket, Earth Fare and buying their super fresh, hot cooked meals. Delish. Weeks of extremely healthy eating really makes a difference in your health. We’ve been having organic salmon, brown rice, tons of veggies, mouth watering fruits and sipping probiotic drinks………I wish we would have thought of this sooner. Yes, it’s expensive BUT we’re on vacation and I think it’s all worth it. By next week, Nick and I will be up a quarter mill. (I’m not boasting. I know our good fortune is only due to the favor of God). I think living well will just become our brand new modus operandus.
The two main pools here are just filled to the brim with grandparents, adult children and grandchildren. I can understand why now people insist on the over 55 crowd. Thank goodness the resort has seven more satellite pools to go. We found a nice, hidden pool gem, with only one or two people in it and that’s where we’ve been hanging since. We did make a pit stop at the Tiki Bar for a cool, frozen pina colada. As I said, were playing ‘tourist’ to the hilt!
In a way, I’m glad we’re ‘going out’ in this style. It makes me realize we made the right decision to sell. Once the transfer is completed, a whole new world will open up for us. We’ve been mostly planning where we want to go next and how our money will work for us now and make it all happen.
Live well my friend and prosper. Live well.
