What do we want, where will we go?

Our wonderful lease-to-buy agreement has fallen through. Our seemingly "perfect" solution allowing us to move to Durham, make ends meet financially and more is not working out. March 1st we have to decide . . . move back to Wilson and try and sell the Durham house, try and sell the Wilson house (and take a huge loss on the property and all that we put into it), rent out the wilson house again and hope that it goes better this time and sell it if and when the market picks back up, sell both homes and rent something in Raleigh closer to work (I seriously think I have HAD it with buying a home!!) . . .

I hate decisions.

There are pros and cons to every choice.

I hate Durham, I love Wilson. Hubby feels the opposite.

Kids don't like Durham and want to move "home" to the Wilson house.

No preschool in Durham. Waiting to hear about charter school possibilities in Durham. Feeling backed into a corner when it comes to homeschooling.

Family in Wilson, MOPS in Wilson, Friends in Wilson. Haven't connected (yet) in Durham . . .despite REALLY hard efforts on my part to find friends and forge relationships.

Small group in Durham ROCKS.

Summit Church is the most awesome church EVER.

Moving again--all the packing and unpacking--makes me want to throw up.

Justin's office is moving soon--his commute from Wilson or from Durham will be back to an hour--that's the reason we moved in the first place, to decrease his commute so we'd have more time as a family.

I love love love the 4 bedrooms here--no one sharing means a lot more sleep for mommy!

Wilson utilities are EVIL. Durham is much better.

Energy efficient house with a laundry room inside (as opposed to the garage), swimming pool around the corner, park around the corner, cul-de-sac, sidewalks and a very family friendly community here in Durham. The amenities are really great.

UGH!!! I hate deciding stuff. I wish God would just lay it out clearly in front of us and say "GO THIS WAY."

That's not the way it works. So we'll think, pray, and try and figure out what to do.
