My Mom as well as Dad decided to sell their lake house as well as transfer to the southeast; my sibling as well as I were devastated when they invited us over for dinner as well as offered us the awful news.
It definitely felt like a punch in the gut. My mom as well as dad never talked about moving to the southeast as well as it felt like that decision was quick as well as crazy. My mom as well as dad tried to explain the reasons why they thought the transfer was a wonderful idea, but sincerely our sibling as well as I weren’t really listening at that point. I thought they would transfer down south as well as I would never hear from them again, but our Mom as well as Dad call me all of the time. They decided to buy a lake house on a large golf course. The lake house needs a lot of repairs as well as the heating method is old, but since I work for a reputable heating as well as A/C maintenance company, our mom as well as dad always call when they have questions about the gas furnace! When they called a local maintenance company for a quote, our mom as well as dad called to make sure that it was a satisfactory amount of money for the repairs. My only sibling as well as I were distraught that both of us would not have a real relationship with our parents if they moved 1200 miles away, but both of us still talk to them frequently as well as they video chat with us all of the time when they can. I guess they miss us, but they are clearly having a lot of fun too. My mom as well as dad laugh all of the time as well as they always have a smile on their faces.
