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!

    I'm in Iowa too and orginally from Minnesota. You will get used to it here, but I know how you feel! Water in the basement sucks - been there, done that too! Hang in there!
