I should have had the sense to put the brakes on before my daughter, her husband and I committed to buying a house together. I should have held out and demanded promises in writing. Each item I presented for discussion was dismissed before my list hit the table.   “These are all common sense.” Her …more

We are moving right along with this homesharing lifestyle and are ready to start searching for our ideal roommate! In previous posts I discussed deal-breakers, and setting up your environment.   There is another reason for homesharing that I haven’t mentioned yet. I’m a diabetic…have been for 25 years. About two years ago, I was …more

You probably haven’t thought about a roommate since college!   Ah, but you are now somewhere between 40 and 70 and you find yourself living alone. You’ve heard about this new “movement” where single adults are trying a new version of communal living (homesharing) called the Golden Girls Lifestyle (like the TV show)…and you realize …more

I’ve previously talked about the reasons for homesharing. If you are a single adult somewhere past the age of 40, it makes sense from a financial perspective to share your housing costs with someone else. It also makes sense to have a companion and not live alone. You can watch TV together, share a cup …more

“Retirement Dreams” Snowy Pittsburgh? Sunny Sarasota? BOTH!

Enjoying the beauty of a foot of fresh snow outside the window, we lounged unconcerned in the warmth of our shared fireplace. No one was in a hurry to shovel; no worries, no pressure. After all, this 3-shovel/3-shoveler snow removal job would be fast and fun. Later. But now, we were reflecting on our first …more

Benefits and Rewards of Becoming a Golden Girl!

What is a Golden Girl’s Home? It’s where mature adults share a living environment. Sometimes, it’s two women sharing an apartment; sometimes it’s four women (and men) sharing a house. You need some compatibility and an ability to respect each other, that’s all. Each house develops its own culture and style, and each member of …more

A Perfect Solution?

Author:     posts:  3    Author's   bio

The time for change had arrived. Around the second year into my retirement, I began to mull over the cost of living alone in my large two-story house.   When I retired, I still hosted international students who came to Canada for English study (ESL). When I first became involved in this endeavor, I never …more
