Pivotable Point?

Monday, December 08, 2014

Nothing like coming home to a note to call your landlord to get your anxiety up and running. Basically, he was wondering if I was going to renew my lease in June. Apparently, he's has alot of people asking about availability. It'd be my third year in my apartment if I renewed.

Ironically, this weekend I brought up (again) to my boyfriend about moving in together. On one hand, I understand some of his reasons such as he can't afford to move because rent is lower by himself than us living together. On the other hand, by June we will have dated two years but he doesn't think he can commit to living together? It frustrates me because at what point do I just give up and move on? Move on to a town I enjoy and a job that might actually be for me?

It's hard because I enjoy being with him most the time except when their are mental health issues. Our relationship seems to get better with time. He's been really trying to eat healthy and support my running. It's been really nice. But, how long do I wait?

Ironically, when I was driving home, I was thinking maybe if I stay one more year I can save up for a house. Homes around here are about the same as rent.

Anyhow, these are my thoughts. It feels like a pivotable point in my life. And needed to get my thoughts out. Guideness is welcomed!

    We met in December and John and I were engaged on the Fifth day of Christmas two years later. I can't help but think you should want to live in the community you buy a home in for at least five years understanding there's a lot of work in upkeep and maintenance in owning property (especially alone). Marriage is a covenant between two people and God . . . a decision only you can determine is the right move or not for you. Whatever you decide, keep saving in your retirement fund and for your future dreams. Hug, hug -- Evelyn

    Well, for me, if it were coming up on yr. #2, and he wasn't ready to commit, I'd have some thinking to do. Obviously, we are all different and have to make choices that are right for us. Just saying, that's how I'd feel.

    DO you like the job you have right now? If you do, then that is worth sticking to. I know the job situation has been very tough for you. Believe me, I 'get it'.

    Would this job allow you to save money to buy a house or condo? If so, that's a mighty fine goal. Again, speaking for me, I would think condo before house only because if you did that alone, a house is a LOT of work. At least with a condo the outside maintenance is provided. That's a huge help.

    ok, those are my thoughts. And on that note, think about things, pray about things and you'll make the right choices, my dear.
