(Editor’s note: Apologies if you got an email with an old post yesterday. I was trying to take two posts off of private and they re-posted.)
Realizing that in my neighborhood home prices were going down and rent prices were going up, I decided to take my home off the market and list it for rent starting May 1st. After talking it over with my husband, we decided to keep it as a long term investment.
With regard to our moving in together, we decided that, instead of getting a new place for us to share in Austin, we will use his Gulf Coast home as our home base. Since his house is less than 700 sq ft (and basically a wall to wall office), we’re installing full hook ups for me. I will still travel and he will fly to visit me in different locales. (He will meet me in Alaska in late June.)
My credit card debt has decreased by $12,000 in the last six months! (I realized that while submitting my credit application for my RV.) The moves we are making now will allow me to increase those monthly payments by about $1,000 a month.
I close on my RV tomorrow! I am buying her from PPL and will post some pics once I get her home. My goal is to start moving in immediately, since I still have so much to learn before I take off at the end of May.
I also want to tell you about auto-mechanics. I love it!
It was so nice to hear from you all last week. Thank you for the well-wishes and encouragement.
