    This is a fantastic issue! My wife and I have really enjoyed reading “Confessions of a Homeowner” because it really speaks to our current situation. We are trying to eject what Drew Gagne called a “massive time-guzzling albatross”.

    When my wife read the article she asked, “Did YOU write this article?”. That’s because just about everything he said in the article applies to us! It took me like five minutes to convince her that I was not the author.

    Thanks again for putting together such an awesome issue!
