Cleveland depression

I'm fairly certain now that I need to get out of Cleveland permanently. I've been a pretty happy guy lately, but as soon as it gets crappy outside, I turn into this shell of a person who doesn't want to do anything but sit around.

Diana and I have zero reason to stay here other than the fact that I have a job that pays well, and selling my house is a potentially shitty thing to try and do right now. There are a couple of houses down the street that I'm going to watch carefully to see if they sell in a reasonable amount of time.

Every year it seems harder to get through the winter, and the high that comes from spring gets more intense every year. That cycle isn't fun. My mom finds life much easier to deal with since moving to Florida, and pretty much everyone I know who has moved out of the Midwest feels the same.

But first thing's first. We need to sell Diana's house. My house needs some work to repair water damage and all of the carpet needs to be replaced. I honestly can't see making a serious go of relocation this year, and that's OK because I don't start to really get tired of it here until January.

At least it's supposed to be sunny the rest of the week.

I'm not going to pretend to be a Cleveland expert living in Indianapolis, but I think even a change in Cleveland scenery would help you immensely!

Granted I don't think it's anywhere near your job, but where my sister lives in Bay Village is very beautiful and I think gets better weather than the east-sider's. However, I myself also want to leave the Midwest! I don't know how people in Minnesota, Michigan, Buffalo, or even Ontario do it!?

No, it's pretty much crappy on either side of town. I live southwest. I know this from working on one side and living on the other, unfortunately.
