We're preparing to send Tom off to college again. I've adjusted very well to having the house to myself. The drawback is that I don't need or want this much house.
Snow removal, furnace repair, water heater replacement (even with huge and gratefully received financial gifts) and roof repair and driveway repair coming up and...and...and...
I'm tired of being a single (alone, not single-family-dwelling) homeowner.
I've breezed through the websites of a couple of apartment of complexes that look altogether tempting. My house payment/rent would go down, my heating bill would drop by $100, my electric would be non-existent. No more paying for garbage pickup, snow removal, lawn mowing.
I would have to pay for a storage unit/place for my camper, or make arrangements to leave it at my dad's house during the non-camping season, so I'd only have to pay storage for part of the year.
Just thinking...if I'm going to be in Grand Rapids, I might as well take some of the pressure off.
