Alright, I get it. I should just buy a house. Or a condo. Or something.
So I went looking at places today, and I have an appointment to go out again -- this time with a realtor -- on Tuesday. But here's my dilemma: In my price range, which is not insubstantial -- and with a washer/dryer, which is not as common as one would think -- the choices fall into two categories -- small condo in a mid- or high-rise building near metro and with a parking garage, or large condo/townhouse in a less-urban area, where I would have to park outside and commute to metro via bus. Or, perhaps, drive to work -- if I ever get a parking space.
