Thank you for all the comments and emails. I love reading about your house hunting experiences. It's definitely not easy, but my dh and I kept reminding ourselves that looking for a home is a good problem to have. I wouldn't even call it a problem.
Anyway - we found the right house. And just as people told me, I knew it was 'the one' the moment I stepped in. I was even ready to accept the fact that it doesn't have a studio for me, when I heard my husband's voice... he found a little bonus room that almost had my name on it. I new it was meant to be.
So we wrote an offer. So did someone else. And the long game of offers and counter offers started and lasted for what seemed forever. This is a page in my journal created one of the evenings when I looked at the phone and hoped for the realtors to call.I'm sorry that I'm not responding to comments. I am sure that you can understand the chaos of packing, working, moving, cooking etc. Every little line makes a difference in my day and I appreciate you all. There will have to be some kind of giveaway when I return to everyday routine.
