Still Nesting

I don't think I have updated about the whole house situation for a long time. The situation with my house hasn't changed. The cowboy and the sailor both fell through. But we have decided not to buy the one we put a contract on in September. It is hard to let go of the dream of those beautiful options and all of the fun we had picking them out. But a lot has changed these past five months and our plan has changed accordingly. Bottom line is that we need space and I need to not move every three years. So now we are looking at single family homes in town. Nothing ugly cookie cutter. Nothing that is a major renovation job. I want a home with character, four bedrooms, a minimum of two baths, not too much land and in a great family neighborhood. We're willing to gut and completely redo a kitchen because we spend so much time there. I talked to an agent today and hopefully we can look at some homes this weekend.
