Turn on the tube and you are likely to hear talk of the American Dream. Owning a home is always considered part of that dream, and we are led to believe that this is what makes our ride up the most recent bubble a noble one. After all, isn't home ownership for all a noble goal?
Home ownership is not for everyone, especially bloggers. It's really tough to get time to write posts when you're refinishing your hardwood floor - trust me. The hours I have spent convinced me that life is too short to remodel your own house. This is why we have so many TV shows devoted to the process. This way, we can live the American Dream vicariously through HGTV.
The American Dream is not a house with a picket fence and a two-stall garage. The dream is not getting a college degree or retiring comfortably at 65. The American Dream is choice!
