I know how you feel. I miss owning our own home although the one we had was a nightmare. If it had been a movie it would've been funny but it was our life so no laughing was involved!

Good luck!


After months of cowering in the corner after going out with our real estate agent last year, I tried again today. We met at 10am. By 10:30 I was back in my car fighting back tears. It's just not fair. I don't know how people do it in this town. Between the outrageous cost of housing and the crappy public schools which necessitate spending $15,000 per child per year on private school (thank you prop. 13), I just don't know how middle class people live in this town.

The house I went to today was over $600,000 for a TINY (I am not kidding) tiny house in an ok, but nothing to write home about neighborhood, that needs $60,000 worth of work. It's enough to drive a person back to NY. But then...how would I make a living?

enough about me. Good luck with your house hunt. I hope it is a more peaceful, less frustrating experience than it is for us.


I know the feeling as I drool over every house-for-sale we pass. Oddly, I feel the same way about career. Homesick for the career that I know is in the future...


Great quote and the house sounds fabulous. I hope things go smoothly this time around.


That's a lovely quote from Geneen Roth! It describes exactly my yearning to find a place (including that perfect home) where DH and I can happily and successfully raise our 2 kids. We've done a lot of intensive soul-searching and have made a final decision to move out-of-state to be able to reach our goals.

Good-luck in your house hunting!


OH I know what you mean. I have so longed for us to have a place to settle down in! I hope you find what you are looking for...the perfect house for you!


I hope you get your house!
