    A House?

    Well, I got a house~ so I am very happy but I don't own it or pay a mortgage; I pay rent! It's  a hell lot better then living an apartment; but apartments are ok; if you can find a very nice one. I would rather pay for a house then a high rent on a apartment any day! The...

    House, Rv, Apartment, Town House, Trailer, Condo

    Whatever you live in, you should hold your head up high; not a lot of people can say, they have a roof over their heads. I know I wanted a house badly and now I do have a house but a nice trailer park  or a quiet townhouse would do me just fine. I have seen some really bad...

    You Know

    Sometimes, the grass is greener on the other side but its how you make it greener. I love having to be the only people in this building and probably like it better if I could have a nicer house than this. I am complaining about how I can not use any of the kitchen space but...

    House

    Well preferably I'd like my own country but I doubt that will ever happen so for now a wee place of my own will do! No where expensive or exotic, just somewhere bigger than my bedroom! I love decorating and I've too many candles to keep in my room! It's not fair on them! hehe...

    My Roommate/husband

    I just had a talk with my husband.  Told him I wanted to see other people.  Yet we can't afford to live separately yet.  So, on we go on as uncomfortable roommates.  Like we have been for the last couple of months.  I hate it.

    I Don't Like Sharing Living Space With Other People

    Perhaps I'm being too controlling, but I hate how other people do things. Do it my way or get out! I am by no means a neat-freak, but other people's messes annoy me. I don't want to clean up after anyone else. I also get annoyed when I hear other people moving about the house. I...

    Not to sound self centered, conceited or arrogant, a true lady, like myself, always takes responsibility for her actions, and she also owns up to her mistakes and atones for them.
