notes regarding my nebulous malaise

I have redone the same project three times at work; just discovered a better way to do it. sigh

Not very happy about Jennifer's vacation plans, she is still slated to leave on Wednesday. grimace

Brian had planned travel to Oregon since he had to be in Seattle anyway. I asked for a bunch of time off so I could visit with my sister--now Brian claims we can't spend a lot of time with her. An afternoon should suffice. wtf

Lost ground on the house-selling campaign. rethinking my position

Clearing books is very depressing business. sniff

Brian's extremely underdiscussed plan to invest in poor-prospect real estate with relatives makes me ill. retch

Increasingly uncomfortable about relinquishing financial independence. squirm

And, of course, it is Monday. sigh

Relinquishing financial independance
Yeah, that's a scarey one. I don't care how secure anyone's partnership is, I strongly advocate being able to handle life yourself, because no one is ever safe from suddenly being on their own for any number of unpleasant reasons. This is not an irrational discomfort, if you need any reassurance on that count.

As far as renting goes, maybe after a year or two of managing a rental property Brian will realize you were right all along, and you can come out here for a nice long visit while you sell the house & we get to enjoy you!

Re: Relinquishing financial independance
Being on my own would be a treat, I tell you. For more than two decades I have shared the helm in this venture and now I am about to waterski behind it? Yikes

I have definitely dissuaded Brian from the idea of renting to actual renters, but he is slowly winning me over to the idea of letting the kids live in the house as long as they need housing in the DC area. The Washington Post ran a couple of articles recently about the difficulties encountered by low-income renters. Brian read them and realized that in less than a year Jennifer is most likely going to be a low-income renter, and Christopher is a couple of years behind her. As long as they plan to stay in the area, we might as well be their landlords rather than have them pay rent elsewhere. Or whatever--it's still very much up in the air.

I had to BUY the house to live in it. I'm just sayin. My sister did rent it for a while though.

What can I say? We coddle the little bastards, there's no denying it.
