I've got to run away! (that's a song...) Do I feel like I'm running away? Well, maybe a bit. :-\ But ultimately, no. I've had itchy feet for a while now, and we've been taking baby steps towards moving on, finding a new place to camp out.
The only thing missing was the trigger, and we pretty much got that with this week's election. Why is it a trigger? Our president-elect has stated that his aim is to abolish the ACA his "first day in office" - that's in January. Can he? Well, the bureaucratic wheels turn slowly, but they do eventually turn.
It's a trigger for us because we simply can't live with the risk of non-coverage for chronic or catastrophic illness, or denial of coverage based on a pre-existing condition. As Rick likes to say, "at 50, life is a pre-existing condition!"
This week, we set our own wheels in motion. Our Vague Plan has taken shape; the ToDo lists have grown, and check marks have been made. We'll be leaving New Mexico soon, visiting family as we wade through the bureaucracy of visas, and eventually making our way to... France!
Stay Tuned :-)
