This is Me on my way to becoming what I can be

I work too much and play too little but I love cooking and apparently still haven't got the eating bit right. Exercise was not really my forte but I love riding my bike when the weather is right and I am in the right frame of mind. The dark mornings and evenings of winter used to depress me until I discover (and got addicted) to cross country skiing. Now I want more than ever to get fitter every year. I still thrive on long warm sunny days and try to feel better and reduce my stress levels ...

I still thrive on long warm sunny days and try to feel better and reduce my stress levels by using my exercise bike at various times throughout the day.

Thanks! I am so happy to be getting the custom made cabinets! The ones we were originally going to order were discontinued and DH wanted all wood cabinets, so decided to try a cabinet maker. I was afraid they would be too expensive, but he turned out the be very reasonable!

Wow! What a wish list you have! Texas and Oklahoma both have very low costs of living, housing is among some of the lowest priced for quality homes in the country. It is a great area to retire.

If you are not retiring, you may have heard on the news that Toyota is moving its headquarters here from California, came out in the news today! So, the business climate is very good too, we are constantly developing new jobs and the unemplyment level is hovering around 5% which is much lower (less than half) the national average. Plus, the political climate is very government hands off! which is very refreshing considering the way the current administration is going........

You may have to live near a large city to get everything you want, if so, then I would NOT suggest Dallas/Fort Worth (too congested and horrible traffic) or certainly not HOUSTON! It is even worse than DFW area. Abilene may work or Lubbock. I like Abilene better, simply for the landscape. Lubbock is flat and empty, pretty much! Amarillo is absolutely the pitts with desolate landscape all around.

I don't know much about Oklahoma but do know that the political climate is much the same, and there are lots of wide open spaces lett, just like Texas. You and hubby may want to invest in a used RV and travel the country a bit before making up your minds where to settle, there are trade offs everywhere, and you need to know which ones you are willing to live with! emoticon
