Him: I’m having one of those “fuck it” days.

Me: Tell me about it. I live in a house where the windows are about four feet off the ground with lavender bushes outside to break my fall.

Arrrgh, I just woke up from a dream in which all my problems were solved. There was a condo complex right in my neighborhood I never knew about, and I could move us into a two-bedroom place so cheap that I would have about a $500 mortgage. And? They had a plan that would let me upgrade—moving completely complimentary, on them—to a bigger place once we could afford it.

Affordable housing, in the same school district, with security to move again when ready. And a mortgage I could pay with my eyes closed and two feet tied behind my back.

Cruel irony, thy name is dreamland.


  1. At least you’re optimistic! At least, I’m pretty sure if you weren’t you’re dream would’ve been about quite a few other things (for example, lavender bushes).

  2. Ooooh, can I live in your dreams and have my problems solved? Please…

  3. You always come up with great stuff I love your blogs I hope I can also solve my problems like you :)

  4. Good stuff here. Will definately be useful for me so I will have to sign up and see what I can get to help me. Thank for this.

  5. Our dreams are the opposite. Our problems get worse.

    So basically, we don’t have bushes outside our windows to break our fall. :)
