How did we end up here? We've lived in Northern Illinois for 23 years. Way too long for this vegetarian! Thankfully, we're only a Metra ride away from Chicago.

An expensive weekend

It's that time of year around these Northern parts when one starts preparing for summer. Especially if you're a pool owner. This is a picture of what I saw when I removed our winter cover Friday...

It's a 35,000 gallon in ground swimming pool that needs to be completely drained and the vinyl liner replaced.

Cost to repair=$4500

This is a picture of our pine tree in the backyard that is dying from the inside out and is leaning toward the house....

Cost to remove=$1500

It's at times like these where a town home sounds extremely appealing.

Terrifying thoughts to those of us who are thinking of buying a home. Good lord, that liner looks scary. I'm sorry everything is hitting at once.
