From Tufts to the Sea and Back to My Routine

My long weekend is over. Oh well. I enjoyed it. It's back to the routine. Now I'm going into the long stretch, no time off till Memorial Day.

Yesterday I was in Medford, urban city close to Boston and the home to Tufts University. My broker wanted me to look at a condo up there. Granted I never thought of living that close to Boston again but I do have to say the condo was quite appealing. It's absolutely gorgeous, in an old school house and in foreclosure for quite a bargain (about $200,000 less than what it sold for a year ago). But I'm not into Medford, or as we pronounce it here in Boston "Med-fid" or "Mea-fuh" depending on how native you are. If it weren't for the fact that it had no garage and I'd have to walk Bandit to let him go the bathroom, I might consider it.

Ideally I want my seaside community but the prices are just so damn high! Yesterday I drove around there too, a bunch of crap on the market either that or just ultra-expensive mansions. Sure I'd love a mansion; however, the $13,000 a month mortgage would be a bit to swallow.

Alright, it's almost 5:30. I got up earlier than normal so I could log into the office and get a jump on things. I have a lot of meetings today and not enough time to prepare. Tomorrow is even worse. Hello routine!

Over and out...


P.S. Bandit's got it right. He's still sleeping.

Exactly, hence the reason why I won't be buying one!

A mansion would be very nice, if only I would win the lottery.
