We almost had a house 2 years ago that I loved and when it fell through I bawled. I totally know what you're talking about. I was sad about it for over a year. My friends told me that I would find something that I liked even better, but I didn't believe them.
OMG, I'm SO glad we didn't buy that house. This one is so much better!
We finally have a moving date... week of the 28th-4th. I can't wait!

how funny! We came very close to buying a new house but it was just TO big. I am still mourning the house we looked at last year, we had a contract and everything but found out they did not own the house and were taking the offers to the bank...it was a mess. I LOVED that house. good luck with your move and congratulations on you new child!!!!

Oh, be glad to get out of a 1300 sq. ft house into a "Dream Home." I've raised five children in a 950 sq. ft house and it has been the pits. My husband never wanted a house, so it has been no concern to him. He told me in 1965 when I was dating him that he'd never buy me a new house, and he kept his word. I should have bought my own.

Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character: it becomes your destiny.
I am SO excited! We've needed more space for awhile now and this summer we received full, permanent custody of our foster child. We're literally running into each other around here. 5 people, 3 dogs, and a cat (not to mention all the other kids that come and go) in 1300 sq. feet.
We will be moved into our DREAM HOUSE by Thanksgiving!
Kinda sad though because we bought this house 10 years ago and have done everything you can possibly think of to it. I'm very attached to it. I wouldn't leave if we didn't need the space so badly. I got a little weepy last night.
