Another life update

I've never gone this long without posting before! This blog feels like a stranger now. I think I'll familiarize myself again with it soon, once I feel settled... There's been a lot of uncertainty in my life lately.

I've been enjoying life, definitely. But plans are up in the air.

I've been with H (I can't remember why I dubbed him that, but I'll go with it) for about 4 months now (living with him for almost 2), and been at the new job for 3 1/2 months. The job is going well, but I don't get paid enough, and the benefits are terrible. I need a new one. I very much like being an editor; I'd like to stick with it, if possible. But there's next to nothing out there that's a perfect match for me. I'n going to keep trying.

The biggest uncertainty in my life right now is H. He's moving up north; his mom is buying him a house, but she would prefer he live up there. It's also the location he prefers for putting down roots. I may come with him. I may not. It depends on whether I could move my current job up there (we have an office in the city), or find another job. And it depends on how things continue to progress. And I would need an official invitation. Everything is going fantastically - but a few weeks ago, when I broached the subject, he said that level of commitment "terrified" him. Maybe his terror has subsided (now that I've met most of his family, his friends, and got the stamp of approval), but I'm kind of offended that the feeling existed in the first place.

I don't know when he's going to leave. He's been postponing going up north to look at houses, I suppose because he's enjoying spending time with me.

I'm getting our second bedroom ready to move in a housemate. That'll leave us both with more options, I think.

Finances-wise, I'm doing ok, but not throwing as much at my credit card debt as I'd like. I'm looking forward to selling off more purses/clothes/shoes on ebay - I've found myself caring very little about them lately. Moving twice since the beginning of the year has instilled a little bit of loathing in me over "stuff" in general.

Hope you're all doing well! (Early) Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there. :)

Good to see you're doing... somewhat well!

Honestly, if it were me, getting a house together after only being together for 4 months would probably freak me out a little, too.

Just make sure you've got the job situation figured out *before* you move (if you do). Nevermind your finances, it would put a bit of a strain on your relationship if you move up with him and take even a month or two to get a job.

Part of why I say this is because I just got a message from someone on a dating site who has a child and is only working part-time, and I'm kind of reluctant to even message her back because of that -- who's supporting the kid?

I would just be cautious to move with somebody that you've only dated for 4 months. That's not to say that I wouldn't do it though.

I was wondering how you've been. Glad to hear that you're okay.

A note in commiseration - when i was moved to LA, my now-husband (who moved first) was pretty freaked out about it and kept wanting me to wait until he'd finished a year of school. He claims he was worried that i'd move there, hate it, and he'd be responsible for ruining my life. Maybe he was worried about the commitment too. Anyway, the worst case scenario was that I moved here, things between us shattered, and I was here alone. I decided that i could survive the worst case and that it was worth the risk. I did have a job lined up, otherwise the risk might have been too much.

Good luck!
