Well ... although I have not been around for my teams, I thought I would write and let you know what is going on. First of all - I want to thank you all for your kind words and wishes.
After consulting with a credit counsellor, it was decided that my best option is to declare bankrupcy and walk away from my house. There is no question that I can't afford to stay here as the bills keep piling up and I have the lack of funds to cover them. It is certainly not the way I wanted to make this move - but after much consideration, I feel it's the best way to start fresh and new debt free.
This means that I have until the end of the month to get ready and make a move by November 1st. I weighed out staying here where I am but vacancy rates for rentals are below 1% here in my current city. So I have decided to make the move to Ottawa as was my original plan. Job prospects seem more abundant out there in comparison to here as well.
It's all a very scary process, moving into the 'unknown'... without knowing if I'll find a job or not, where I will stay, etc., but I can not keep living here and under this type of pressure.
I did a free tarot card reading and it said to be prepared for an upheaval and many changes - so I guess this is it.
I will not be around here as much as my time will be concentrated on maximizing getting myself ready for the move. I will try to check in ... and hope to be back on board once I am settled and hopefully with good news about things going a bit better for me.
In all of this I worry about my girls and how they will handle it but I trust that they are going to be ok - so long as they have me. I told my oldest daughter not to worry about things as it was my job to do so.
I am going to pray that everything will work out for the best.
