I have read a number of posts from my 'collegues' facing the retired/reduced activity regemune.

My poll, it intended to distill the deepest of thoughts about your encounters, (parents, siblings or yours) with 'retired living'.

[Personal: We're in MUCH more house (for 35 years) than we need, house paid off, kids and guests can come, party-sleep over, etc. No problems handling the (over-bearing) property taxes, maintenance, etc.]

But 'one' of us is ready to trade down, to a 'retirement environment'.

A. Stay where you are; the change-dissonance of a move is not worth it.
B. Every instance you're aware of the folks who made the change have been very happy.
C. You're aware of LOTS of very UNHAPPY folks.
D. Way too much stuff to decide what to move, what to throw, what to keep. FUGGIDABOUDIT.
