The frustrations of househunting are really starting to get to us!! We live in NY and are hunting for a home in CT - technically our first home - so it's a special move you see. After having searched for 4 months so far and being thissssssss close - something always inevitably pops up and snatches our dream home right out of our hands :( The drive to CT akes 2 hours each way and consists of one grouchy and hungry preggo (me) wrestling an overactive toddler in the backseat who refuses the carseat every minute of the way. I know I know - he should be in the carseat - but it is next to impossible. He literally cries in it until he throws up everything he has eaten that day so I resort to holding onto him tightly. Don't judge me! Poor kid - I'm convinced that the 4 months of looking with 8-10 hours in the car every trip has traumatized him. He's spent a third of his first year in that darn car!
To make matters more complicated - our search criteria must accomodate a severely obese and very lazy basset hound (ok, totally my fault I'll admit) who refuses to do stairs so the house has to have easy access for her to go in and out to go to the bathroom. I won't even let myself fall in love when anything that requires lifting her up a flight of deck stairs b/c let me tell u - carrying a 75 pound dog when pregnant or when holding a newborn or a toddler clasped to my leg outside is NOT FUN!
We are so close, so very close - I can taste it!! The thought of being done with this makes me want to jump up and down and dance like a crazy person! :) Heck, I might just do that anyway to let off some steam :)
