My husband recently retired, we moved back to Maine to be close to our children, things are not going as planned and as crazy as it sounds we now wish we had stayed in Indiana.  Love being near the kids and grand kids but Maine is a very expensive state to live in.  Have considered Myrtle Beach but can't make up our minds.

I finally have my home the way I want it so I plan to stay here in east central Illinois for awhile. I do however plan to travel on peace and justice trips as long as I am able. I've been to Nicaragua twice and the second time brought 139 new Spanish language books to a small village in the mountains. Education is the beginning of freedom for these friends!

I'm so happy I caught this discussion! I am planning to move off Long Island next June and actively investigating where to live as I would like to stay near water but not in such an expensive location. As I work remote I have great flexibility. I know what I don't want -- any heavy rain area or cold lol. So any insight, suggestions, resources you can share I'd greatly appreciate.

I would prefer to live in the Pacific Northwest but I don't think I can afford it.

Second choice:  Pennsylvania

Third:  Panama

SK1008,

Where do you live in Florida?

You are setting a good example for giving back.

I retired several years ago, but. could not volunteer anywhere because I was the only caretaker for my parents. I've since moved to Fl. , my dream come true, and love it here. I have started to volunteer at my church and signed up as a disaster mental health worker. I hope to give back to my community.
