Description


When is the right time to start thinking about moving to a retirement community? Should I or shouldn't I? Am I old enough? (Of course not!) What's it going to be like when I get there? I Am NOT Old Enough! deals with the author's experiences as she navigates her way through this life-changing challenge. She goes two steps forward and one step back along the way, but an open mind, a light heart and a sense of humor ultimately lead her to say, "I think I'm very glad I moved here." This book is for anyone contemplating (or resisting) a similar move.
