Back from Massanutten, and just a few days to start planning for the move and new job before we’re off to Chicago to look at homes. We spent 3 days “neighborhood hunting”; because the Chicagoland area is so huge, we didn’t even know where to being looking for a home. City, close in, or far out suburbs? So we used our first trip out there to look at a few houses, but primarily at neighborhoods. Going around with a few different realtors, we settled on the downtown areas of Oak Park, Evanston, and Glen Ellyn. We’ll be off to Hawaii in a few days on vacation, and then moving to Chicago a few days after we get back. Once we get there, we’ll start our search for a house in one of those areas.
