This is really unfortunate...trying to find a new place to live while unemployed will be unpleasant, but it'll work out somehow. Also, I hate moving. I really, REALLY hate moving. I hate changing phone numbers, and having no phone or 'net upon move-in, and getting addresses updated at the bank and everywhere, and packing up everything. This is the real reason I never end up unpacking half of my stuff from boxes; I don't honestly believe anymore that I'll ever stay anywhere long enough for it to be worth it.
Hopefully this time it won't be quite so down-to-the-wire; we took this house because Jen talked me into submitting our intent to move at the beginning of December, and we hadn't yet found a firm place. By the 19th, this house was available and so we took it, fast, because otherwise we would've ended up homeless by the beginning of January.
Ugh. I suppose maybe I should consider relocation for jobs after all, if we're breaking the lease on this place anyway. I'd just hate to leave Seattle and my friends and roommates and everything.
