<<I live in L.A., my house is paid off, and all should be right with my world. But my partner and I want to move across town to be closer to our daughter, who just got married. We're just talking a move of 8 miles. But calculating in the traffic time, we have to budget an hour just to get there in a timely way. >>



Ummm.... Have you considered the possibility that your daughter moved 8 miles away from you for a reason?

You've calculated the amount of time it takes to do this commute. But have you calculated the cost per hour of the time you save if you move closer yet have substantially higher housing costs as a result?


I'm imagining you moving a lot closer to your daughter and then her moving eight miles away again....
