It's a thought that keeps me warm some nights.

Merry Thanksmas, Americans. Have I missed it? Is it too late? I'm never quite sure when it is.

A time to be thankful has passed. Now it is time to fret over materials and gifts.

That seems right.

Rant/Rave: My husbands work super dicked him over and he resigned on Monday. We are considering selling everything and moving. There are much better job opportunites away from here for both of us.

Rave: Excited about starting a new "empty nester" chapter of my life.
Rant: Nervous about the process of selling our home and possibly building one with three dogs to juggle.

That sucks, but hopefully everything works out for the best. A change that big is hard but you'll figure it out.

My parents have been living in a camper on our land for about 8 months after they sold their house. When they moved out there my mom had just taken early retirement from her teaching position for health reasons so their monthly income took a big hit. They had to sell their house and build a shop before they could make any moves toward building a new house. It's been interesting times for them as well but it's all starting to come together. The new house should be finished before Christmas and they had a chance to incorporate a host of features that should make life easier as they age. I'm trying to resist the urge for another 3 or so years before selling our house and building across from them.
I'm putting my talents and skills to use for a business so that I receive compensatory funds that I may then choose to spend and invest and save as I see fit. If I choose to blow it all on hookers and Dr. Seuss books, I don't see how that means you owe me a comfortable retirement. - Deacon

Ah, tumult, mischievous demon of change and anxiety. You can banish him by being clear in thought and purpose and selling properties and businesses with a healthy padding :)

That is the hope at least :).

If my husband can find a job in the area we are looking at we could sell the house here with enough money left to build a home and have little to no mortgage. It would also get me out of the deli which would be nice. I had someone approach me about buying the deli but I could only afford to do it if we sold the house and moved (owe more on the deli than it is worth). My husband has decided he wants to "just relax" until after the first of the year. Which I get because he has not had any real down time in years, but it is driving me crazy with all the uncertainty and "what ifs".

There's nothing more unsettling that uncertainty. Particularly if you feel powerless to resolve it.
Great news you're going to be less a slave to debt and deli though. We call this knd of thing in Scotland 'The kick up the arse you need' to change circumstances.
Or as one door closes, another window opens.
Something like that anyway.
