I planned on doing a lot of work on my house after I moved in, but things have been put on the backburner.
I moved back to Albuquerque to be close to my elderly parents who need more help now than ever before.
They are in their early 80s and are both limited mobility at the moment. My initial plans were to stay in Florida for another six years before leaving for any new location. I wanted to save enough money to buy a camper and no longer be tied to a house or an apartment. Although the places to camp in Florida are fairly hot and uncomfortable in the summer months, it can be a wonderful place to hike in the outdoors when temperatures are cool from October until April. The last year I was in Florida we had temperatures down to freezing a few nights. But when my parents were both hospitalized and needed immediate help, I took what little money I had saved and moved back to my home city in Bernalillo County. I planned to leave if anything happened to my parents, but I secured a good job and have been here since. Yesterday I had my heating and cooling technician install my brand new heat pump while I spent a few hours hiking in the Sandia Mountains. Cibola National Forest has many trails and I’ve only traversed a small fraction of them so far. When my HVAC technician was finished with the heat pump installation, he called me on my smartphone and I returned home from my afternoon hiking in Cibola National Forest along the foothills of the Sandia Mountains.
