I know I said that I didn't expect to get the house, but I'm still sad.

Sure, I didn't think we'd get such a great house on our first try. OK. But it's more than that. Our real estate agent has been sending us the closing sale price on a couple of places that we saw. And the prices are astronomical.

I'm starting to worry that I'll never get a place that's in a relatively safe neighborhood, within a 10 minute walk to 24-hour TTC, in a condition that's livable without selling myself cash-dry for the next 10 years.

What is going on in Toronto? People have lost their minds.

And now Alex is being kicked out of his apartment in May and will have to live with me in my tiny apartment until we find a house that satisfies.

I hope that we don't make a bad choice just because we're afraid of sharing a Jr-1 bdrm. Although it is a legitimately fearful prospect.

Lol. This is what happened to Scott and myself when we were looking to buy. "You mean, I have to pay how much just to get a place that is SMALLER than the apartment I am currently renting? How is that a step forward??"

Alas, Oakville is not as sexy as Toronto, but it did give us the space we were looking for.
