We live in a small house in Southern California. We have two children, 3dogs, 1 cat, 1 rabbit, and 1 hamster. My house is spotless and I have had almost everyone tell me they would never know we had pets. Here's my secret; all dog beds go outside during the day to air out, cat litter is changed every other day, rabbit is an outdoor rabbit so I guess that doesn't count, hamster cage is changed every weekend, I have a roomba I robot pet edition, and I vacuum twice a week with my canister vacuum! It's a lot of work especially since I work full time but I love my pets and I refuse to be that smelly house. Plus if you keep up on everything it only takes 20 minutes a day to do a 20 minute wipe down that keeps everything clean. I do it as soon as I get home and then I'm done and free to enjoy my evening.

I live in the "south bay" area of Los Angeles. We have a great street with 1920's bungalows. Many of our neighbors have lived on the street for 30 plus years. Those of us that are newer to the street really appreciate them but we wouldn't even know them except for the fact that everyone hangs out in their front yards! We are unique in L.A. In that we have really big lots with big backyards, however we choose to be out front because its fun! We talk and watch the kids play. We have made great friendships that we never would have otherwise! It has built a sense of community that is missing from so many neighborhoods in big cities.
The #1 Reason for Hanging Out, Out Front

I hear you girl!!!! I have two degrees and a masters in a field completely different from interior design/decorating, but my passion is not in my current field either. I feel like I'm too old and I don't really want to go back to school but would love to follow my dreams in designing! I'm throwing around ideas of how to start a business of my own in an area similar to designing. Not sure if this help... Also, a previous commentor said that there were exams that are similar to the medical board! I doubt they are that hard! Seriously!
