It really does come down to money....

So I just watched four episodes of House Hunters on HGTV, and good lord, I want a house. The strange thing is, yes, I want a house, but I want to look for a house, and shop for a house so much more than I actually want the house. I've dreamt about decorating my own house for years now. Maybe I should have become an interior decorator. lol

Zach told me not to think about it because it would just make me sad because we don't have the money to buy a house (or even move out of our studio apartment), but I still can't help myself. I want a house. I want a home. I want hardwood floors and high ceilings and a patio and a pantry and a walk-in closet and walls that I've painted and carpets that I've selected and couches and artwork and a fireplace and an island in the kitchen and a computer room and a master bedroom. 

And the really sad thing is, I don't even know when we'll be able to get any of this. I need a job. I need a career. And that means that I need another degree. I hope I love teaching. I hope I'm good at it. No - I hope I'm great at it. I think I can be. 

How is it that I get all deep after watching a home and gardens tv show? Seriously. What's wrong with me? Damn you HGTV.

Move to Illinois. You can buy a house for like... $125K. Not like that's pocket change... but it's about 1/4 of what you would pay for a house in NY.

Plus, you'd be close to me. Just a thought. And they need teachers and handymen type people basically everywhere. Just saying.
