Thought I’d share a bit of personal news. My landlord and longtime neighbor died last week. His family is selling his property, including the lot my mobile home sits on. My family owns the home; so to make things easier we decided to sell it. I can’t afford the lot since I am aiming for a Masters degree soon, and moving the place in addition to finding another lot is also beyond my means. My parents volunteered to fix up the basement into an apartment. In fact, they insisted my younger brother and I move in. I could afford an apartment, but my Dad’s hours are being cut. Their budget is very tight, even tighter than mine.
I decided it is best to move back in and help them with the finances while my sister goes to college and my younger brother works on becoming a teacher. My regular irregular posts to Liquid Footprints will soon be coming to you from my new basement abode.
