Debbie, I don't think men bond quite as well with grandchildren as women do. When kids get older, their grandfathers seem to have an easier time bonding. I'm glad you have such a positive attitude towards finances. When you look longer term, it doesn't seem so intimidating. I did that too and it worked for me. I am sorry that health issues keep your DH at home.
Jan, I am also glad you still have the health care insurance you need. Such a blessing too, to live in a warm climate all year round. I have embraced the temperatures at home (cold in winter, brrr!) otherwise I would not enjoy my life nearly as much. But I still prefer the warmth of summer!
