We've finally found a house to buy - which is the good news. The bad news is I'm afraid we settled on this one mainly because we were sick of looking ( I saw more than 50!) and also because we're so anxious to get out of where we are.
It's a great house with some nice features - especially the big jetted tub - but it's more than we should have spent and not exactly where we wanted to be. We haven't yet signed on the final dotted line, but we did put some money down and had an inspection, so it looks like we'll be moving by August First in spite of some misgivings and worries.
This will be the 12th move of my adult life.
