A housing nightmare

Our apartment contract ends the first of June, so Josh and I have decided to do some house hunting.  After all, everyone tells us that houses are such a good deal and now is the time to buy and it's a buyers market and blah blah blah.  LIES.  They are all lies!  Condos for $339,000?  A 1200 square foot home for $400,000?  Yeah, I don't think so.  And none of these places even have a yard!  Where am I supposed to put my garden if we don't have a yard?   Seriously, we're going to be in this one bedroom apartment for the rest of our lives.

Hey you should really move to Texas. There are a lot of jobs here and everything else you'd want to do you can do here and guess what? The housing market really is good here. We are buying a 1500 sq.ft house for only $100,000 and that is one with upgrades. Think about it. We'd love to have such dear friends close by.

K, seriously, I need you all to help me kidnap Josh and move him up there! He complains that it's too cold in Utah. Lame!
