We’ve been spending a lot more time out on our patio since we made it over a few months ago. We eat here at this table pretty much every evening, and it’s great. The next thing we’re gonna tackle is the area behind this table which currently is pretty much a huge litter box. My dream would be to have a jacuzzi out here (I’m obsessed with jacuzzis), but I always have one eye open as this is a rental and I still hope to buy a place of our own one day–although honestly I’m not even positive that will ever be a reality for us. The prices in LA are so astronomical and as a freelancer, getting a loan has, so far, been impossible.
About five times a day I go back and forth in my mind about committing to staying here at this place and just going for it, putting the time and money in our rental to make it just how we want it to be, versus leaving the home as-is, and saving the money for when, one day, we can invest it in our own home–even if that’s five years down the road. It’s a very hard decision to make.
What you you think? Invest in a rental to make it your dream, or hold off for a bigger and better dream that may or may not ever become a reality? I’m torn.
