dreaming of land, with tiny cottages and a longhouse for communal eating. oh god i want a commune so bad. i could raise chickens and jennie would raise dairy goats. we've already agreed. it would be divine.


but also, dreaming of a house. falling in love when it is so not appropriate.

le sigh. we need to pay down credit cards, which would allow us to start saving $500+ per month toward a down payment. we have been frittering away our extra income when we could have been paying down debts all this time.

realistically a house should be at least a year in our future. i'm not even unhappy with where we live (rent) right now, it's just that i have this itch to own something, tear it up and turn it into a massive garden. stop shopping. pare down to what is essential.
