I usually post about Panama but I’ve shifted my focus to getting things squared away for Ma’s leaving and going to Portland, Maine. We leave Panama on March 15th so we’ve been busy with the necessary preparations for a quantum shift in life styles.
Above- Ma’s beautiful chest will look good in her new digs!
It’s been a busy time for us the past week. Once Ma figured out where she wanted to go I put the wheels in motion. I called the movers, contacted relatives, did online searches, made lists and phone calls. But there’s still more to do.
Above- the living room is being used as our staging area to see what will be shipped.
I’ve decided to contact “A Place for Mom” and see if they can give us their take on the situation. Since many Independent Living places have waiting lists we may have to find a temporary rental. I’d much rather get Ma into a permanent place while I’m there since I won’t be around to help after I return to Panama.
Things will come out alright, they always do. Like many others, I’m the type who would like to have things lined up in advance. The area looks great, Ma lived in Portland when I was a toddler and the area is affordable.
Now if I just knew the address to where I can tell the movers to deliver to……..but things will work out, they always do:)
