Ya. This is something we battle with often. We are in a little patch in between Albany and El Cerrito & our income is 50k ( only Dh) We have decided to "let go" of home ownership. The downside is that we aren't financially able to renovate the rentals we live in ( like earthquake) And we constantly wish life was cheaper around here. Then, add in the constant concern of break-ins ( no matter where you live in the bay) and crappy public schools ( I will homeschool, don't...

under 2! Oops, forgot to mention that...so some interest for mama and dad, and some for baby
what would you do? we have lived there in the past, but are just curious to have some more perspective since we are traveling for a visit. 
Wow, I didn't know that, so thanks Bubbling Brooks!
Hi there, I am so sorry you are dealing with such awful migraines! Sadly, I can relate.  Have you tried essential oils such as lavender and peppermint? They have never worked for me but some people swear by them. Mine seem hormonal too, but I have not done a test for allergies.  I use imitrex when it gets bad, but would rather not. Plus, since I have started using the meds, I seem to get more and more headaches. Hmmm.   Anyways, hopefully someone will have some...
