For those with a long commute: what makes it worth it (if indeed it is)? do you have any tricks for maintaining your home life when you're gone for 13 hours a day? what really sucks about it?
For those with a short one: would you move to a house that's everything you want, but is much away from work?
Inspired by my present quandary. My commute is half an hour, which isn't awful. But I fell in love with a house that costs significantly less than my shitty apartment, has a yard, etc., only it's an hour and a half away from work. I'd have to get up early as balls every day and not get home until around 7 pm.
