In case anyone wonders why I'm still in the midwest: many reasons, not least of which is that I can afford an awesome wompy old farmhouse with lots of room to flop on nice afternoons.
@HedgeMage omg, i love having outdoor space. and indoor space. and a three-digit mortgage payment
@HedgeMage I bet it's a heckuva sight when the fall colours hit!
@HedgeMage Yep. We're looking at buying multiple acres in an excellent school district for the same price a 1bd/1ba townhouse on either coast would go for.
@HedgeMage Going from California to Ohio was one of the best decisions I've ever made.
