Get me out of Iowa

Friday, July 23, 2010

If it weren't for being so close to family, I would be out of Iowa in an instant. The weather is terrible. (Cold & snowy all winter, 2 weeks of spring, hot & rainy all summer, 2 weeks of fall.) I like living in Minnesota way better (even though it was colder in the winter, the rest of the year made up for it -- and there were things to do!!- sporting events, concerts etc.)

Right now we have water in our basement. What a pain that is... and it is the 3rd time this year! Next time I move, I'm going to buy a condo or rent an apartment... Home-ownership sucks.

I need to move somewhere without precipitation... but Las Vegas is too far from family!!

    Awwww...bummer on the water situation. How is that going? Yeah, I'm with you on home-ownership. I'm not convinced home ownership is still the "American dream".........

    I hear you, Claudia! Sometimes living in the Midwest is boring. But, I think boring is good. Low crime, low housing costs, etc.

    Hang in there, the water in the basement will go away!
