Moving into the City

Thanks for the guest post by Jo Levy

I’m so glad that my mom and dad are still so active even though they are in their 60’s. They are so glad that all of their kids are finally out of the house after some rough years. Three out of the four of us had to come back and stay for a while after we graduated college because we didn’t find jobs right away. Needless to say, they were overwhelmed and wanted their space back. After we left they sold their house in the suburbs and bought a place really close to downtown.

They say they want to get back into going out to dinner and dancing, and there is no way they can enjoy stuff like that in the suburbs. I am really happy for them, but worry about their safety in their new neighborhood. I made them check out to see if they thought a home security system was for them. I was glad when they decided that it would be a good idea for them to get one. I guess I can’t take all of the credit for the decision since I didn’t do anything but send them the link, but I’m glad I had a positive influence on them. I definitely feel better about their living situation knowing they have an alarm.
