View from my Front Door

This is the view from my front door. I feel like I am isolated in a jungle. When I moved here about five years ago, the manager told me that Thousand Trails did all the yard mowing, tree trimming etc. I guess I misunderstood. I thought they would do all the park. She did tell me if I wanted to plant anything, that caring for my plants would be my job. I never planted anything. The ground is too hard, and there are too many "critters" around. We have a lot of rabbits, wild turkeys, squirrels, and possums, and lets not forget the "mice", not my favorite! I have had this lease lot five years come August. I traveled and was gone three or four months, then come "home", now this time I have not been anywhere in two years and I am so ready to move on. That is one reason I don't think I want to rent an apartment. I feel trapped now, if I had an apartment, and had a lease to deal with, and furniture, I don't know what I would do! I first thought when I sold my house that I would get an apartment, or a small house. But, now I don't think I will ever be happy if I know I can't just pick up and move! I found out yesterday my neighbors, who were here when I came, are moving to a house. They have a travel trailer, never pulled it. They designed it to live in, here. They are senior couple, and they do travel, but in the car and spend the nights in hotels. It did surprise me, I wish them all good things.
I made it to Wal Mart today, I stopped at McDonald's for a Mc Chicken sandwich. Friday is NOT the time to go to McDonalds or Wal Mart, but I need to pick up my prescription they didn't have ready last time. I bought a small fan for my bedroom too, I have one, but it is driving me nuts with squeaking, and after reading Old Fat Mans Adventures ordeal with his, I decided just to replace mine instead of trying to fix it! I just need the air to be circulated and during the night seems I can't breathe.

  1. I am not happy with my current apartment living, although it was wonderful in the beginning. Things can change, you get new neighbors, etc., and it can go from pleasant to hellish!

    I would never in my life want to own a house again though. I want to move on after a while and you are stuck with a house. My problem is that the places where I would want to live most of the time are too far away from my kids or anyone I know, and I'm getting to old for that.
