I overheard Marc tell someone on the phone the other day, "you know, I know we *should* be buying another house, but I'm ok with renting. I really like having this pot of money in the bank."
And it is true. I feel the same way. I guess almost bankrupting yourself for 7 years while renovating a house will turn anyone into a scrooge.
So, for now we are enjoying a normal-ish family life. We just got back from a much-needed trip to the beach.
