Know when to fold em!

  Yesterday Nana and I did something we have not done in a very long time. We got in the car and went somewhere new. I realize how much my anxiety and depression robs me of lovely days like yesterday. I picked Nana up at 11 am and we went to Morgan Hill to stroll…

The average nothing fancy 3/2 bedroom townhouse in our neighborhood goes for about 1.5 million dollars these days, and I swear not a single house that we have lived in on this peninsula has ever had air conditioning. We are right on the San Francisco Bay and 99% of the time it is not necessary…
