We all moved out (5 kids) and settled. My parents still live in this gigantic 3 story house with side buildings and huge garden. Since years my mother tries to convince my father to sell the place, downsize, get something apropiate for their age (63 and 71). Health problems kicked in years ago and it's costing them a fortune to maintain the place.
Of course it's nice to have a place to stay when the whole family comes together, but it's just crazy in the long run!
I'd really like to talk about that to my father, but it's a very sensitive subject and we are very much alike. So I'm afraid this conversation won't end well. They could still have a few good years together, but here's the most annoying point: "I die first.", that's what he's convinced of. (2 b cont.)
