I guess this is growing up.
I’ve been pretty adamant the past couple years that I wouldn’t be buying a house any time soon. Why would anyone settle down? Why wouldn’t you want to move constantly and explore?
It’s because moving suckssssss.
I’ve lived in 7 places in the last 5 years. At first, it was exciting. And I really wasn’t ready to settle down anywhere, that’s why we were so eager to move to New Hampshire. Our New Hampshire apartment was the first place I had spent more than a year in a long time. And even now, we’re not ready to buy a house. Not 100% ready to commit to somewhere for a long period of time.
But I am ready to commit to more space. To a yard. To not boxing up 5 rooms worth of stuff and paying for a truck and movers – things we frankly can’t afford to have to hire every year.
I didn’t get it at first, why everyone would rush to buy a house. Why boomers would shove it down our throats. But I get it now. I get the advantages in the long run. And you’ll probably see me buying a house in the next five years.
