Retirement really?

Bob and Harriet have lived in their house for 20 years.  They raised their children there, they built a beautiful yard there and have been very happy.  With their last son going off to college and their last mortgage payment coming due what will they decide to do.  Sell the house and buy an RV traveling the world or will they fulfill a dream of turning their home into a bed and breakfast.

“Hey mom!  I need to go back to Langley’s to get more boxes.  Do you need anything?”  Joe asked his mother.

Harriet wiped her tears and took a deep breath.  The room where her son had spent the last 18 years was about to be empty.  When Robert and Charity went to college she was not this affected.  She decided it was the looming empty nest that was so upsetting to her.
