And now for some real vacation...

We've had a great time on vacation. Bruce has caught dozens of grasshoppers and other insects, we've been camping and hiking, and we've jumped on the trampoline for hours at a time. But we've been trying to buy a condo at the same time, which means when we weren't hiking or having fun with the fam, we were faxing documents, emailing lawyers, and fielding calls from realtors. No fun at all, but it would have been worth the fuss to quit renting and finally buy a place. Unfortunately the deal fell through this week. We got an inspection done on the unit and it turns out the place has 20x the amount of radon that is considered dangerous. Soooo we won't be moving there. We found a place to rent to avoid homelessness and we'll think about looking and buying when we get back to Boston. In the meantime, we are happy to be done faxing and stressing so we are going to ENJOY our vacation!

Where is the new place? Dare I hope that it's in Arlington somewhere?

How terrible! At least you found out before you moved in. Good luck in the new house hunt.
