Nice Family in Search of Good Home

Some are beautiful but out of our price range (our realtor doesn't take us to those, but we can't help ourselves from looking at listings online). Some are nowhere near an el stop, or don't allow dogs, or have no parking. Some are OK, but nothing special, and we have started asking ourselves, sadly, is special too much to ask?"

New entry up at DotMoms.

I wrote the piece on March 21st. Later that day, we made an offer on another unit, and I thought to myself that by the time the piece was published at DotMoms, our home-hunting saga would be over. Our offer was rejected that afternoon. The search continues. (Sigh.)

Hi Jessie,

Don't give up hope - the perfect home for you is out there! We looked at literally 90 houses when we moved from CO to PA in 1999. Best of luck!
