After some discussion, we’ve decided to move. Temporarily we are looking to stay within the same school district, but eventually hoping to move to a different state. Hopefully a warmer climate.
I struggled with it for a bit, but ultimately, I think its the best thing to do. The house is going to need some major improvements in the near future, and with me not working, its just not feasible. The housing market just sucks, and there is just no way that we would ever get out of the house what we owe. So, we are either tied to this house forever, or we get rid of it now and hopefully that will open other doors for us.
I definitely had to swallow my pride a little on this one, but I really see no way out of the present situation.
It will be a struggle for awhile, not that it isn’t a struggle now. There is just no way that we can properly maintain the house with only one income. And this makes us much more flexible to other opportunities should they arise. And hopefully they will soon.
I have to hand it to my fianceé, she has been very understanding and supportive in this whole mess that I’ve been dealing with for the last two years. Never once nagging or complaining about me being out of work.
I really hope that somehow I made it into William Buffett’s will!
