yes- I know- I feel so inspired in the other town, and connected. And I was isolated for years before haveing ds. But I want him to grow up in a community of friendly people. The thing is that home is very important to me too. We were lucky to spend the few months we recently lived there in a really nice apartment! so we had both things going on. We had to leave the place (landlord's situation made it so) . So, I just feel such a huge need right now to make a home for my and my family- yet it is so disjointed in my world- we really haven't been able to find anything at all even close to good in the town I want to be in! So I know there is no answer- we are just going to keep looking.
I guess what I don't know is how MUCH to compromise? there are a couple of crappy apartments we could live in in that town right now, but they really don't appeal to me. We moved into a run down smelly house for a few days, but that didn't work out for me! So anyway it is a weird transition because we recently came back to isolation from having been a part of a community I really liked. I really want to go back there! But I need a certain standard of home- which I haven't found yet- just, clean floors for ds to crawl on, clean air quality- etcetera. And I am used to where I live now which is super nice. so I just don' really know how to proceed other than wait and see what comes up as options.
