Lol, weekend visitation rights with the pooch! I am looking for a house like you've described, but seattle ain't exactly cheap so I'm having a bit of trouble. I'm sure I'll find something soon, it's just a matter of time and a little effort. I think the fact that I went to college 1500 miles away helped me get some distance (literally and emotionally) from my family...I'm definitely a different person now than when I first stepped on campus. Thanks!
> We are mostly all at some time restrained by money but if you have a plan to get out of your situation and work steadfastly towards that goal, then I think you will feel better if you know that "this too shall pass". When you get a job, is it an option to rent a house which accepts pets and which you can share with others to reduce the rent? If your mother is happy to look after the dog, there are always weekends to take the dog out with you. I think that would be the best of both worlds. No day to day responsibilities with the animals but with time to enjoy them (a bit like kids!). I think you have done well in such a family situation to be as objective and mature as your writing suggests. Good luck!
