Plugging Along

For an unemployed bum, I seem to be pretty busy.  I have sent out several resumes this week.  I have not had many interviews, and the ones I did have, all hired someone else.   I have enrolled in two different schools.  The one closer to my house does not have the classes I need often enough.  The one that does, is further away.  Grrrr.

My life is mostly stable.  My relationship with K is pretty good.  I'm even getting allog well with AJ.   I relationship with T is going well, even though I don't get to see him as often as I want.  

I have good days and bad days dealing with the uncertainty of going back to school without a plan for how I will support myself.  Somedays I feel really zen about it, sure that it will all work out somehow.  Other days I am freaked because I am diving in without a clear plan.

I think I should be writing here more often, but I seems like there is not a lot to say.  There is not a lot of movement.  There is not a lot of drama.  So there is not much interesting going on so there is not much interesting to write about.  I don't want this to become a whining blog (anymore than it already is)

There are some milestones coming up.  My divorce will be final in 17 days.  I am thinking of selling my house and moving into a small apartment.  In 2 years when I start PA school, I may have to move again.  The school is almost an hour and a half from my house.  I will probably have to find something closer, but not too far from my kids.

I will keep you posted.

In some areas of the country the rental market is heating up. Rents in my county are up 10% vs. last year. You might take a look at what your cash flow would be if you rent your house out vs. selling it. Just an idea.

Hello, Jim,

I've * just now found & am admiring & therefore following your blog.

You're probably needing the services of a certified financial planner (CFP) . As to what you should now do with your house, I'm suggesting that you ask T to help you locate & visit a CFP near you & get the CFP's advice.


* I'm in Winston-Salem.

I know every thing, but Jim doesn't want to listen to me... :)

More's the pity that Jim won't take your advice!
