We've decided to go ahead and re-rent the rental property. We met with the realtor and since our situation is somewhat complicated financially, it makes sense to wait until Spring 2019 to sell based on the numbers. And if we were to put some money into it we could get significantly more. However, at this point having NO money to put into it, nor the money to cover carrying costs. It is mortgage-free but still costs $500 a month in taxes and insurance.
My father called and has a smallish job for my husband to do the week of 12/26. I imagine he'll come up with some odd jobs to keep some money coming in. Thankful for that income stream.
I've finally got around to listing some items for sale on a FB group and on nextdoor.com. Only a handful of items (eight) so we will see if/how they sell before I expend the energy to list more stuff.
My daughter away at college went "thrifting" with a friend from home who attends another Milwaukee school. She was delighted that it was half off at Value Village and she got jeans, two turtle necks, and a sweater for $10. Go M!!
My attitude is somewhat better than yesterday (I have deleted yesterday's I feel sorry for Myself post). I've got plenty to be grateful for. Today I am volunteering while my 7th grader and others spruce up the church before they decorate for Christmas. I've not felt at home at the parish since I've broadened my belief base, but it is his home parish and I will be happy to be there with A.
Have a good day, Friends.
