Hey there, Les
Well, we are now living in Houston, TX....weird, huh? Actually moved here because we had a job waiting... The night we moved, we had a major car accident outside of Baltimore, rear ended by a Salesman driving a Land Rover....talk about luck. If you're going to get hit, get hit by someone who can afford to pay your hospital bills!
Anyway, we had no where to go but to Houston, to live with my brother while we are awaiting surgery, and final settlements. Actaully, if we can afford to, we want to move before the settlement. We Hate it here...scares the living crap outta us, if I can be so blunt.
Maybe this sounds all funny to you, and I'm not being scarcastic, but I am reaching out and asking around.
I can't tell you how many times I've cried over having moved down here. We had a nice little rented home in Pennsylvania, but prices are high there. I lost my job, which was the main $$ job in the family, and this changed everything.
Obviously it must of clouded my judgement too, because what we left was not as bad as what we have had to deal with since we got here.
When it all comes down to it, and it is no doubt romantic thinking on my part; but I've always loved the area of New England...since I was a kid. Now, with a husband and dog...things change, and the northern regions have taken on a different perspective. We aren't city people, the only time we dress up is to go our congregation...
Night life? Well, we usually rent a movie, sit out and watch the stars, chat a bit, read, paint, play with the dog, work in my garden...
All that sort of exciting stuff....haha...otherwise, I always like having company over.
We are not yuppies (geez, does that word exist anymore?)
Anyway, that's my story. I just thought I would ask folks who are not real estate related...and are not in it for the money. We're just checking around and what to hear from other folks who live in the area.
Thank again for your trouble,
