Yesterday we visited house #... what, 358? I should have started counting from the beginning, but now that I've made up a number I think I'll just keep adding to it. Anyway, the biggest problem wasn't that the house was too small, as I expected. It was small, but it had wonderful gardens and the roof was equipped with solar panels. No, the problem was that there are chemicals leaching into the ground water from an old dry cleaners in the area. They've tested the house and it is not OK. Cross that one off the list.
I didn't think I was so picky, but it's amazing how many weird deal-breaking problems we've encountered. Guess we just keep on looking.
