My Nana & Papa: Survivors and More
I got a call from my Nana the other day. “Ari, we sold the condo! We close on the first of May!” It wasn’t just her voice that tipped me off to her excitement, but the fact that she had called me in the middle of a weekday. You see, she doesn’t like to call me during the day when I might be juggling a nursing baby and a hyper toddler, no matter how many times I tell her “It’s fine, Nana, I want you to call; I can always call you back if it’s too busy here.” That’s just my Nana.
Nana and Papa are in their mid-80s and have been spending their winters in their Florida condo for the past 20 years.
