I always loved kids, until some very young ones moved in next door. My new neighbors have a 2 and 3-year old, and they make noise all the time. We had a very quiet neighborhood and the peace and quiet we always adored. Now their kids always wander into our backyard and the kids insist on trying to use our door as their own. Ugh...headaches...time to move.

People with kids should try to find blocks with other kids on them to live.

I used to live in my loft in NYC and learned to hate those antique radiators. All the 4am banging pipe wakeup calls in the dead of winters. And oh the slow leaks, how I love the puddles on my wood floors. Or the steam making my loft space feel like a sauna. I used to hate the coming of winter in that place, only because of those radiators.

i can only handle two days with my mom max. After that, I'm running for my car at 3am to get away without hearing her mouth.

maybe this "house hacks" feature should be discontinued. the last couple have been a little bird-brained and a lot tacky
