High rise heartbreak
Well. Fifteen years and three children later, we're empty nesters. Wife & I decided to downsize and move closer to her job and live more intelligently. Our house with a pond and native habitat is on the market. We're living in a small one bedroom highrise apartment downtown. I am heartsick over leaving all the trees and shrubs and wildlife behind. I'm so concerned the new owners won't appreciate the habitat and will even kill the little garden snakes that come along. But we don't need the four bedrooms and higher utility bills. What to do? Anyone in this forum relate to this and have any ideas? Trying to be strong and do the right thing. It's a bit easier now with snow on the ground and everything dormant, but come spring I may go insane.
