Woohoo, we just got an offer on our house on Saturday and accepted it yesterday! The buyers are anxious to move in ASAP, are opting out of home-inspection, and are already pre-approved for their mortgage, so it looks like a done deal and we will be moving very shortly! Not totally sure where we're moving to, yet. We want to rent for now for a couple of reasons: 1. We're not totally sure which neighborhood we'd like to live in. 2. Even if we knew for sure, we're not sure how long we'll be living in Pittsburgh, because Alex will have his master's degree in a couple of months and who knows what job opportunities might present themselves. Furthermore, even if no offers present themselves in the short-term, we still may be interested in relocating within the next 5 years or so.

So it seems a little myopic to invest in purchasing a house at this point. We are looking at some rentals this weekend in the southside, squirrel hill and regent's square. We hope to sign a lease by the end of the month. It's exciting and a little scary at the same time.

We're not totally sure who will watch the kids while I'm in class, either, but we have a couple leads that we are following up on. Hopefully everything will fall into place and this transition will go smoothly. I was planning on taking the girls on a road-trip to FL for spring break at the beginning of March, but it looks like my time might end up being better spent moving and settling in.
