Something just arose that made me revisit this thread. I thought it might be interesting to note that since I was last here...

1- I am still unemployed
2- I found out in October that I was misclassified as self-employed and in fact considered an employee (by my state employment security) and am now collecting a meager benefit.
3- Yes, I did move (over the c'mas/new year) b/c I had no choice. It is not ideal in that I have to be out by mid-May. I am paying to store all my belongings, but I have shelter for my few remaining animals and myself
4- My cat was euthanized July 13th. Another pet died two days before and I lost another two in Sept. just two days apart. One of those was positive, as it was a wildlife release.

My IRA is pretty much gone and I will have to deal with the tax and penalty issue in a couple months, but I had no choice. Too bad I did not know about my classification before.

So that's my story. Thanks for everyone's input, as it was much appreciated.
