    Well, we sold our house and have to be out by December 22nd. On top of that, I roll off my contract December 31st. So I will literaly be homeless and unemployed at that time :)

    Seriously though, we will be living out of an RV until we can find a suitable house for my tribe (5 kids + dog + 2 cats) to rent until we build this spring.

    That means not much UO for me for a while. Hopefully, I will see you all when we get through the transition...either here or in Darkfall!

    If you are inclined to do so, please pray for my family and I...and specifically for me to have more patience than I am normally blessed with. 5 kids, 1 RV ....ugh.

    At least you sold your home. Some houses have been sitting on the market over 6 months here. One house that I'm taking care of they had to drop the price almost 200k to sell it.

    I moved and rented my first home but we didnt like the area of our 2nd house so we moved back to first home. anyhow that 2nd house originally sold 1.8 yrs ago for $565k. it fell through with that guy before it was even finished (because of a divorce) and I picked it up new at $406k. we tried to sell it since dec of last year and finally have a short sale closing next week. it is short selling at $250k. that is a loss of $315k on this house. (house is gorgeous with 10 foot celings, 4170 sq ft under air, 5300 sq ft under roof). its just the area got devistated by the loss of construction business.

    fortunate I finally getting out of this but I still have to pay a promissary note on it.

    (it also had a hugh yard and 28 feet between houses http://www.lorddog.com/new.aspx

    Ok, I must tell you all that my title of this post prompted a couple of people who are obviously very sweet to be very concerned for my family. I guess the title was a little overdramatic. We will be just fine, no worries. I have the kind of job that pays well, but doesn't always pay consistently. The nature of consulting....

    But knowing that is the case, we have budgeted well so no worries at all.

    Elmer: ICQ on the way :)
