Dammit. The mice are back. I've caught two in the last day and I suspect there are still more hiding. I can't find the hole outside where they are getting in, but it's such an old house that I'm sure there are multiple spots where they're coming in.

We've been home from Florida for one month and twelve days. Yesterday was the first sunny, warm day we've had in all that time. I put on my Beachy shirt, capris and flip flops and enjoyed the outdoors all day. Today was partly cloudy but still warm. We're supposed to get 4-6 inches of snow tomorrow. And I want to punch someone or -thing.

Another snowstorm this weekend. I want to just cry. I hate this so much.

I have a co-worker who is always complaining about needing to find a roommate so she can pay her rent. She rents from her parents, but I don't know how much she pays. I do know that she could easily afford rent if she budgeted better. She goes out for lunch every day, buys shit (we're in specialty retail) at our store almost everyday and is always looking to go out for dinner/drinks after work. She's in a supervisory role so I know she makes more money than me. Plus she just picked up a second job.

We probably have the smallest and oldest house among all our friends. Our bathrooms are "vintage" and quirky, our living room is just big enough for our sectional and a TV, there's no family room or big finished basement. Our kitchen still has these old cabinets from the 70's and a plain white fridge. No stainless steel, no marble countertops. But it's all paid for. We're in our 40's and have no mortgage and it's the best, most freeing feeling!!! I wouldn't want a ginormous home with all the updates if it means paying a mortgage for another 20 years. We'd prefer to save for an early retirement and do lots of travelling.

We have a five bedroom house and two adults kids who have moved out and gotten their own places. We also talk about getting a smaller condo or cottage situation, but I agree...extra space can be really nice. DH has a music room and I have an exercise room. When people come over there's plenty of room for them to stay. We like our garden and the kitchen is a good size for making preserves and other projects. I dunno, maybe we'll just keep put.

We will be mortgage free in about 15 years. Can't wait! Our house is tiny but it is affordable for the area and life is good.

In response to a confession. We are in a position where we don't have a mortgage. It's incredibly nice. It takes so much stress off of us both because we can live on about half of what we earn and save the rest. We'll probably move into a bigger/nicer house at some point, but we really like not having that house payment every month.

I have a friend that complained they could barely make their house payment and didn't have any extra money to do things because they were stretched financially. She doesn't work but her DH got a raise of about $300 a month. What did they do? Bought a house that was $100,000 more than their last house. Dumb!

DH and I recently bought our first (affordable) house less than 2 years ago. we love it and the area. it's just big enough for the 2 of us and our pets though (we're not having any kids). we're undecided if we should make this our forever home or eventually upgrade. on one hand it would be nice to get a bigger home but on the other it would be great to stay put, pay it down, and become mortgage free forever.
