We found three or four places where we wouldn’t mind living, at prices we can (more or less) afford. Just by chance, all the places we found are in San Mateo, within walking distance of the place we have been staying while we’ve been house-hunting.
Now we have to decide where we would like to live. As usual, one of us (me) is all ready to decide. As usual, one of us (Carol) wants to keep our options open. After nineteen years of shared decision-making, we know this state of affairs is normal. Out of this flux, a decision will evolve.
Correction: Because my blog is on Eastern Daylight Time, this originally appeared as a June 13th post, even though it was and is a June 12th post.
