One of those months.

*sigh* I'm just a little bit outside my happy place right now, and haven't written much. Thankfully, it's nothing to worry about, just little things.

The next year has a lot of real estate trepidation. If all goes well, Whines and I will be striking out to get a new home. The plan is to start looking in February, researching the market, and then buy in May-June. But the fear-factor is downpayments, paperwork, the rough transition when the lease is about to expire.

Work's a little rough. Nothing terrible, just mildly unpleasant boss and a little more than I can do, every day. That piles up, though. And with the financial demands on my company, I question whether I'll have a job here in February.

Having to adjust my spending habits--I can't go Shopping. For, like, a year. Grumble.

The flip side of all this--I'm more prosperous than I've ever been, I have the money to pursue a dream, a relationship that's stable enough to support it. All these "problems" are just the flip-sides of blessings. But the sum of all the little things is more than a bit exhausting.

I'm reluctant to move so far away from Austin, even if the commute's short. Unless the area gets very liberal, very quickly. But it's worth thinking about.

aww, but you'd be so adorable riding the train in the morning, reading a paper in a tweed jacket w/ a steaming travel mug of japanese tea :p

It's just prioritization. Gotta give up A to get B, which leads to more C and a happy Life.

Glad to hear things are going well for you up there.

You should live in our 'hood - there's 3 houses up for sale on our block alone!

I've been fantasizing about my friends moving near me...

Let's see what happens when the real estate bubble bursts. I'll definately be looking in that area!
