Rah! Rah! Rah!
Now that I am establishing my new routine of work, school and sleep while going forward on refinancing the Harkness palace, I am starting to look at life down the road.
I recall playing this game back before the criminal proceedings concluded. It was horrible and overwhelming and it made my head hurt.
Now? It’s a thousand piece puzzle that I’m trying to put together and every single piece is fuchsia. At least it doesn’t make my head hurt anymore and I’ve stopped rocking autistically. Occasionally I do pick up one of the puzzle pieces and lick it hesitantly just to make sure that it hasn’t acquired the flavor of unicorn kisses but for the most part, I move the pieces around and scratch my head a lot.
Someday, I will move far away.
In order to afford to move, I must sell my house.
In order to sell my house, I need to put it on the market and wait.
Once I sell my house, I need to live somewhere else.
These are the things I know to be true.
Now, the question is, what order to I put these things in?
I’m thinking that when the time is right (note: a few years down the road when the market is better), I should sell my house and move into a place where I will rent. This will allow me flexibility when the time comes (job offer) to fly the coop.
Finding a rental that would accept two dogs and two cats? Hmmmm. Could be interesting.
Then, there is the move to somewhere else.
My goal would be to buy a house as soon as possible as I’m looking at housing prices vs. rental prices in a few of the towns that I’m considering and renting would be insane.
But I’m assuming that I would have to rent in the short term and then move again when I found a house.
But the idea of moving my stuff twice sucks. I will no doubt have to hire people to help me since I’ll kinda be on my own in a strange city.
I’d love to do it all in one fell swoop. New job, new house, new city. As Emeril would say, “BAM!”
The perfect scenario would be to get a job that would help me move. The reality of the situation is that I will probably be working for a non-profit and non-profits can barely pay for toilet paper, let alone future employee’s moving expenses.
So, I keep moving these puzzle pieces around and wondering who would be a good resource on the nuts and bolts of this situation.
I don’t think it would be a life coach. The very term “life coach” makes me throw up a little in my mouth.
Realtor? Psychiatrist? Shaman?
Tinker, tailor, soldier, spy?
Perhaps a football coach? He could explain it all in a series of x’s and o’s and yellow lines and cheerleaders.
AND there could be a marching band!
