Every wonder what if……..?

My hubs and I were sitting outside after work today (it was 32 degrees C) having drinks (beer for him, red wine for me), and we were debating the whole topic of owning versus renting a house.

Lately, I have been feeling very restricted by our mortgage, in that it ties us not only to our house (which we love), but our jobs, our city, and our current life.    I have to ask:   “what if we want to change our life, on the flip of a coin?”    How does one do that when one owns a house with a mortgage that’s not up for negotiation for another couple of years?

I wonder, is it better to rent, so that one can  handle anything that life throws their way.    A move out west to teach skiing, a career change, world travel, maybe an Ashram in India.

But seriously, how does one keep one’s life options open when one is tied to a mortgage?      Does anyone have the solution to this?

Or am I just wanderlusting again – or preparing for the on again off again wanderlust?

Am I the only one who thinks of this?

Vancouver 2011 – Whistler Ski Trip.

Possibility of anywhere.

Open to some input here people – please share.      Am I just non-committal?    or a commitment phobe?      Or maybe I just think the world is small and I am entitled to it all.

Peace out,

Susan.
