Not really, but I'm getting itchy to get out of this place. The plan as I understand it (though it seems to change depending on who we're talking to...) is to move stateside before we start having kids. That's not all that far away for us (a couple years) so I've already started looking at potential home locations.
Dan wants to be near a city because he thinks that he can't get a job anywhere but a city. I'm not sure what he thinks people do in rural areas, but my guess it that he thinks that if we live in Maine he has to be a lumberjack or fisherman, so I have conceded to looking at places in and around Boston. I love Bean town, so I'm not totally opposed to to it, I just want a home that's detached, has a bit of a yard, is safe and has decent schools (just thinking ahead) and more than 1 bathroom.
So here's my shortlist for pretend homes (all taken from www.realtor.com):
4 bed, 3 bath, not much land though. Close to public transport and the coast. No interior pictures though, always makes me a bit wary when looking at homes from abroad.
3 Bed, 2 Bath, not much land, but right on a lake with a nice big deck. No interior pics, but close to transport as well so the hubby can get into the city.
4 Bed, 2 Bath, within walking distance to transport, but close to the tracks, so it may be loud (although we're on the flight path to Heathrow, and we don't even notice the planes anymore). Interior is really dark, but the walls are painted burgandy and olive.
3 bed, 2 bath, nice big yard front and back. The current owners are obsessed with that green color, as the entire interior is the same color as the exterior. Again, near the train track, but that may not be a big deal...
So that concludes our pretend house tour in the Greater Boston area. A girl can dream.
