We have lots of things up in the air and possibly coming down the turnpike around here in Sluggy Land.
Some things I can't talk about now as they are medical in nature(and not my medical issues for a change)but it is affecting my life now and might affect it more fully if things work out one way rather than another.
One thing I can mention is that the Daughter is contemplating going back to college to finish her degree. She has applied to a particular school and has gotten accepted already AND they gave her a $12K merit scholarship.
Of course this a private college and not a public one so $12K is merely a drop in the financial bucket to afford attending this institution.
However she only needs to do 2 years worth of work and won't have to live on campus.
There are other colleges yet to hear from and she is mulling over her options.
This particular college is located near us so if she attends there she will move back home to live until the sheepskin is in hand.
If this plays out in this way, it will affect our retirement plans/moving plans a bit. It also means I need to make room for a fourth(and a fifth is her BF comes too)person in this house.
This is something I hadn't counted on.....having to downsize my stuff even more so they/she can move back home for a couple of years. Of course, there will have to be compromises made in the way the house is used/lived in now as well.
This is not an unsurmountable issue. And we have time to figure it all out once she commits to going there(deadline is May 1)and comes back sometime in August to start in the Fall.
But it does make planning anything for the coming year(mostly travel)impossible until this school and the medical issues are settled one way or the other.
It just goes to show that life changes and not always in the way you think it will. ;-)
