Gettin' outta Dodge!
Hi folks. It has been a looong time since my last post. I have been busy moving and quite frankly the angst has just plain worn away. I have left Brooklyn and other than my Moms in Carroll Gardens, there is little else tying me to the boro.
I have moved to Suffolk County with my inlaws, Mrs. Squeeze, Baby Squeeze, and #2 in utero. We are in a four BR split level ranch with a nice backyard in a (relatively) quiet cul-de-sac. We renovated two rooms (new paint and other touches) to make baby squeeze and us feel more at home. Most of our stuff we dumped into a local storage space ($125/mth!). So now we are soaking up the sun under the willow tree in the yard and socking away $2500 a month.
And you know the funny thing is that I don't miss Brooklyn at all. Change is sometimes a good thing! The only thing that is a drag is the commute. Hour and a half. I bring lots a reading material but sometimes run out. The conductor's chants I've got memorized (5:21 train to Babylon, change at Jamaica for the train to Hempstead, change at Babylon for the train to Speonk, stopping at Bay Shore, Islip,...)
All in all, I am happy and no longer driven to blog. Anyone else want to take over being the resident Brooklyn Real Estate contrarian, feel free to let me know and I will pass this onto them.
