Loving life in NoVA

Hi. I hope y'all are happy, healthy & well.

Six months have flown by & we love it here more with each passing day. Being so close to our family is what the move was all about.

Do I miss Atlanta? No.

We've spent more time with our family in the past six months than we were able to do in the past 12 years. Lots of family events, birthdays, weekend gatherings, soccer games and day trips. Every Monday I drive over to Leesburg to pick up our grandsons from school and take them to soccer practice. I'm loving being Nana Susan and a soccer grandma.

I came out of retirement on May 9 to work at Costco. Everything we wanted to do at the house was done, and sitting around doing nothing was driving me nuts. It only took a few months to realize working retail SUCKS! I hated it and accepted a job in a private medical practice & started on 10/2, Tues - Fri/10 hours per day. The job is ridiculously laid back and the commute is 11 miles of back (mountain) roads - past apple orchards and corn fields. I cross over Opequon creek twice. The views of the mountains (Blue Ridge & Appalachians) are breathtaking.

We've seen lots of wildlife on the mountain. We had a bear pass through our yard, and there's a family of deer living in the woods behind our house. At night you can hear the coyotes yipping and the star gazing is amazing - unbelievably bright and millions.

Still traveling. We had 17 days in Hawaii in June (island hopped between the Big Island, Maui, K'auai, Oahu) and we're leaving next week to meet my brother & sister-in-law in New Orleans for a cruise to the Western Caribbean. We've never vacationed together and I'm looking forward to it.

Sweet is still in the garage. Jim talked me out of letting her go (again). There are miles & miles of twisty, curvy roads very nearby to explore.....as soon as I replace the battery that I let die - again.

Has anybody heard from Nut (Bob)? We were in Bowie, MD for a family birthday party yesterday; I would've called him, but I lost his number a long time ago.

I hope everything is going well for y'all. I've missed you guys.

I'm glad that you're doing great. It's good hearing from you. I was getting tired of GT's posts. My Marine son Ben moved from Hawaii to my mom's place on the Eastern Shore of Virginia back in June. So, I've visited him a few times already.

Hi & thanks! Poor GT.

I'm glad to hear you've been able to see Ben. How is he? How are you? How's your Mom?

Ben is out of the Marines. He had a terrible accident while he was deployed last year and is still dealing with his injuries. My mom is doing okay. She's glad that he lives with her but, it's only temporarily. He's there for another year and then he plans on moving to Tennessee. I think.

He's been having some seizures that the doctors think it came from his accident. He has partial medical disability and is trying to get permanent disability but, is having a difficult time in doing so. Dealing with the VA sucks.

Remember that you are a short 7 Hrs away and you might want to come see the leaves turn orange. Maybe not.
