    Well, if you like your girlfriend the way she is, why do you want her to change? Why do you want her to adapt the minimalist part of your lifestyle?

    Well, you do want her to change, no? That's what your post sounded like, and if I recall correctly, some previous posts. And assuming that you might, at a future point, try to get her to change is a...

    Re: the bolded. Because your vacation was idyllic; real life is not.

    And I would question if everyone enjoy getting away from their stuff the way you do. That's not why I go on vacation. I go on...

    Have you consulted an agent yet? I'd talk to two or three of them, and get a feel for what the current market is like. One of them might have a list of people who want a smaller house (that's what...

    Or she may just be trying to tell you that she prefers the farm, if DH was taking her there daily and you don't (I couldn't tell from your post how often you take her to the farm).

    Once I was...

    What do I have? I have a couple of hundred old photos that my parents took of my and my siblings, to send to my grandparents. Dad was military and we rarely saw the GPs, but when Grandma died, we...

    Agree about the death certificates. You will need one for just about every bank account, investment and piece of property your MIL owned. My dad was so stunned by the number he needed when my mom...

    Thunderseed--I *never* feel like doing certain household tasks. Food shopping--I hate it. It is a tremendous amount of work feeding yourself. You have to make a meal plan, read the sales circulars,...

    I know the feeling. You come home from a day's work, perhaps having run errands on the way home (more work), then you cook dinner (more work), and then you just want to sit and do nothing for a bit,...

    The two bolded bits really stuck out to me.

    You and your DH have different definitions of downsizing. Both are good definitions, but in your case, they clash with each other.

    I think they will still buy back books that have highlighting or writing, just not pay as much. I seldom bought used books because of all the neon yellow highlighting in them--makes my eyes hurt.

    When I was 16, my parents were fine with leaving me home in charge of my four younger siblings, ages 14, 12, 8 and 7 while they were gone overnight. Looking back, I wonder why they did this--I'm not...

    I agree about the pizza. Maybe she could decide to go out with the gang for pizza or ice cream or whatever once a week, or twice a month, or something like that. When you don't go out with them at...

    I tracked down the original article, and the people who wear the same thing every day buy multiples of the same article of clothing. One woman owns 15 identical shirts and 5 identical pairs of pants....

    Currently, I live in a small city in a rural area. But I used to live in Boston.

    Pros: lots of things to do. A car is not really necessary.

    Much though I don't usually agree with bae, I agree that seeing a therapist for a few sessions to learn some coping skills on how to deal with this might help.

    The breakaway collars take a certain amount of force to pop open--when a cat is snagged and twisting and pulling to get away, it will open. And you will probably lose both collar and tags when that...
