Friends buying homes

We are really happy about one of our friends gettin re-settled in Milwaukee and buying a new home.Screen Shot 2016-08-08 at 7.22.39 AM It’s so much fun to share in the joy of your friends.  This is the first close friend who has bought a house since we went RV’ing and I’m fascinated by my own reaction.  I really am happy for her; and I really don’t want to do the same thing.  When I listen to the details — it’s all in the details — always — isn’t it — I am quickly dissuaded of any interest in joining the property owners club one more time.

Wisconsin (not far from Shawano) .  The 5 acre plot was 1/2 the distance to our family as we are here, there was electric & phone to the property , and the property had already been PERK tested, and it was zoned for our kind of seasonal use (which isn’t all that common in WI).  But after some consideration we returned to our previous position and said, “No More Real Estate.”Klatt Rd

So, I’m happy for friends, and I’m happy for us.  We want different things at different points in life and that’s a good thing, and it’s the way it should be.

Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll be here to chat again tomorrow.
