Ok, in order to preserve my sanity and to prevent Pete from wanting to throttle me after I'm declare OH MY GOSH WE HAVE TO GO SEE THIS PLACE RIGHT NOW RIGHT NOW RIGHT NOW like 5 times a day, I have decided to stop the search and not doing anything (as Amy and Robin suggested) until Lucia's second birthday, which is also right around the 3 month mark for my new job. By that time, we will have been visiting various neighborhoods and will be able to make a better assessment as to which neighborhood is the right fit for us. Lucia needs to find a new daycare/school around that time, so that fits with the timing too.
Until then, I'll just post about hair, I guess. ;)
