How do you want to spend the spring and summer of 2022?

A little bit of work and a little bit of play. That's always a good goal.

Work hard... Play harder. That's another good motto.

Work smarter not harder. That's a favorite saying of mine.

The most surprising thing about this Downer's Grove dream home, at least to me, is the listing price. I expected it to be much higher than it is.
