Do you ever drive by a spiffy cottage, mansion, or apartment complex and think to yourself, If I only had the money? If yes or no, why?

I sometimes get that tinge of envy when I watch real estate or apartment showcase videos. It would be nice to not stress out about rising rents and utilities or what upkeep will be affordable for the next year or two.

I don't generally envy the huge houses as the house I live in was where my maternal grandparents lived. It's home in a way that a big generic place could never be.

And, frankly, it's a lot of room for one person. A McMansion would be even sillier.

I like seeing tiny apartments and how people make them work (tiny as in under 400 square feet, two-plus residents). I don't get envy about living space. Certain locations, sure.

When I take a friend who has no transportation for his medical appointments. We go past an area of town with institutional sized homes. There has never been a time passing by them that the street these mausoleums are on that they don't have the curb filled with contractors trucks that do all the maintenance on them, their yards, pools and who knows what.
Champagne dreams, caviar wishes.
