    Hi Radicchio,

    We (me, dh, 16yo) moved from a 3 story older home with a difficult layout and terraced gardens to a single level ranch house.

    I find our new house infinitely easier to maintain....

    I have to wear earplugs and I really dislike them. Sometimes I opt just to side- or breast-stroke instead of crawl so I don't get water in my ears, and can leave out the plugs.

    I guess it's a matter of how you define values. I think your values are reflected in your actions; if you want to know what you value, then look at how you spend your time and money.
