Five Year Anniversary

Jun 28

It is hard to believe that five years ago we moved to Charlestown Retirement Community in Catonsville, MD. The move from Warner Robins, GA was smooth. Here is what I wrote in a blog post five years ago.

Where does the time go? Here we are heading to a six week mark on the calendar since we¬†moved in. Life is good. The adjustment has been easy for both of us. It has surprised me how fast I got used to having a nice meal every night. We have sampled all the dining venues. We go to the Refectory for dinner before or after Mass, we head to the Chesapeake if we attend the movies in the Conference Center, and we go to the Atrium in our building the rest of the time. It is potluck when dining, you never know who will seat at your table. Sometimes it is a four top, sometimes a five top or even a seven top. We have some good times around the dining table as we get to know other residents. We don’t hear many complaints about life here from our table mates.

Life continues to be good. We are very blessed to be able to afford this lifestyle. We are both involved with things we enjoy doing. Dan has found his niche doing what he likes to do and I am busy with a variety of projects involving my techie skills. We don’t have to leave the campus to do what we like to do. We are spoiled with the on-campus services including the bank, pharmacy, library, video library, chapel, medical center, shuttle service and the list goes on.
