house dreaming.









Now that we have accepted an offer on our house, my mind can be found wandering to the homes we visited in Pittsburgh.  Husband and I were careful to balance our time with looking at neighborhoods/houses and also finding fun stuff to do with the kids, but in reality I think we all enjoyed house-hunting the most.  It gave us something to look forward to with this move and an opportunity to imagine ourselves living in a new place.  We'd pull up alongside each house and discuss the pros and cons.  We'd look for signs of children in the neighboring homes; basketball hoops, trampolines, scooters, bikes, and hockey nets.  We'd deliberate over yard-size, steepness of streets, shutters, proximity to neighbors, brick, landscaping, and nearby schools.  Concerns came up like "How far is the nearest McDonalds?"  "How far away is my school?  Will I ride a bus?"  I think the chore of paring down areas to live gave us an opportunity to come together as a family unit, which is awesome, since when we move we are really going to be relying on one another for comfort and support.  Somehow I think we are going to be just fine.
