In which I show another character flaw

I think this guilty pleasure shows that I am not a good person, although I'm not entirely sure how. I am sure several of the deadly sins are involved, but which ones? This is what I do. When I'm reading my way through the quilting blog world (and it's been a chemo week, so I've been doing much more reading than sewing) I stop when they mention a town. Perhaps where they live, or where they shop, or work, or someone is visiting from there.

And then I go to, and see what I could buy if I sold up and chose to move there. Now this is only fun if you currently live in an area of unrealistically overpriced real estate, like me, and you can imaginary-shop for all these amazing mansions on vast tracts of land with bathrooms for everyone in the house including the cats. Is this stupid? Yes. Do I have a job in rural Iowa? No. Would I want to live there anyway? No. But if I did.... I could buy a big damned house. And when it comes to big houses, domestic comfort and some seriously swagged interior curtaining, there is nothing like the US of A.

  1. Thanks for the comments on my LIb Amish quilt. Your writing here is very funny, I like your humor. Yes, coping is a very good word, I hope you keep your spirits up and kick that crap out of your body! I get the Country Living mag and go right to the real estate page first to see where, this month, I am going to move to. I check out seven different states, and then I remind myself I have no friends there and no job in any of these places!
