When we moved down here, all we wanted to do was be active.
Having spent the last decade prior to retirement getting fit, we weren’t about to waste it sitting inside the central air conditioning of our new place.
We moved to the land of the heat pump from the great white north. It was a change for sure. But a change that my wife and I had both been thinking about and planning for nearly as long as we were getting our health back. I think the fact that when we hit our mid 50’s in such awful shape was a wake up call. We’d both worked so hard inside the commercial HVAC of our respective offices for so long that we sort of let our health go. We wanted to be sure that we reclaimed our fitness before it was too late. Plus, we wanted to move south to enjoy a region where we could actually get out during the winter. The idea of playing golf and enjoying a winter outside was so awesome. So we wasted no time getting after it when we moved down here instead of staying inside the air conditioning all the time. And it’s been a wonderful decade. These days, we’re slowing down a bit. While we still love to get outside and do fun, active things, there are days where we just aren’t up to it. Having the sunroom with the ductless heat pump installed was just the ticket for that situation as we can sit inside with quality heating and air but still enjoy the outdoors.
