First, my apologies for the blogging hiatus – for anyone who’s missed me. This is the longest I have ever gone without posting anything. But, you know, life happens.
And, suddenly, everything in life feels like it is happening all too fast.
Recently, Mr. C and I accepted an offer on our apartment, the offer we made to purchase a home was accepted, and we signed the lease to rent another apartment as we will need a place to stay while the new home goes through renovations.
All on the same day.
**Do not, under any circumstances, purchase a home prior to selling your current one. Our first buyer fell through. Fortunately, we had several subsequent offers and are currently in contract. However, the stress endured in the interim was completely not worth it. Plus, I’m in the real estate business and should definitely know better.**
Anyway, the reason why we are moving is because we’ve always known that we wanted to raise our kids in Long Island. While I love, love, love the city, outside of elementary school, our zoned public school education sucks. Where we live now, the only good options we have are private schools or one of the specialized high schools.
