Had one this week. It finally occured to me that I can keep sitting around while the dump I live in gets condemned or I can move before it does. So I am moving to Melbourne, Florida to join my darling daughter!! Going to rent a Tiny House finally.
If you are living in an area that is <zoned> for them, Google <Tiny Homes> and include your location. In my case my daughter lives in Melbourne, Florida and technically this area <allows> them with alot of red tape 🙄
Where I am until next year, Cave Springs, VA - nope. But they do have Tiny Cottages, cute but expensive as this area is home to 2 hospitals and the Veterans Hospital $$$$
I am watching our famous housing bubble, fingers-toes-eyes crossed I can afford to relocate in 2022. Media says prices will not be lower so it may be 2023 😭
Are you interested in renting one?
What one location may call <tiny> may be different from another location.
It is best to check with <zoning> for the area you want to rent a Tiny House. Some are okay with them being rented as <vacation> homes but not as a regular rental home.
Lol, yes, got to read between the lines with zoning 😂🤣
My first aha moment came after I was laid off in 2012. I worried about finding another comparable job possibly working for a company I wouldn't like as much as the one I had just left. It was a great company to work for with great managers and coworkers. I had several more years mapped out in a spread sheet with personal days I would take off for birthdays, filling out the days off for major holidays or to coincide with my wife's Spring breaks from teaching school. I also had vacation weeks planned to keep from losing any accruals, while I kept a mind to retire after that time with several weeks on the books to give me a boost into my retirement.
I worried and lost sleep for 2 days after being reduced in force. On the second day, I realized that I was in a position to retire.
I was laid off in May, but I claim the middle of June that year for my official retirement since that's about when my accrued vacation time, which they cashed out upon my leaving, would have run out if I had taken the time off work as regular vacation.
My second aha moment was more of a gradual realization over time. Like so many others I have heard of, I finally started to wonder how I ever found time to work for anybody else at 40-plus hours per week. My to-do list (procrastination list?) has only grown since I retired.
Even so, I consider this to be the best job I've ever had.
I had one yesterday. Instead of throwing my cell phone on the floor in total FRUSTRATION, I went ONLINE to read up on how to TROUBLESHOOT it. So PROUD of myself!!! Lol, use to hate YouTube, now I go to it to learn stuff. 🤣😂
