The Dream House has sold. Iím stunned and canít believe it, donít want to believe it, even though Iíve driven past the house and seen the sign. Yes, Geoffrey was pretty adamant that the location was a problem, but the fact that we kept returning to it over and over again lulled me into thinking that it was still viable, that it would someday be ours, the perfect combination of square footage, backyard, layout and price. Apparently, some other family will be happy there amongst the dancing dragonflies, but it wonít be us. I try (unsuccessfully) not to feel devastated.
