I guess this whole thread falls under the School of Hard Knocks as there are many lessons to be learnt suddenly, without much preparation.Some years back, I was already "retired" and eking by on my VA Disability (which barely covered the rent) and my wife's income. Then she needed an operation which kept her out of work for many months and left me to decide whether I should feed the kids or pay the rent!Well, the kids were happy but the landlord was not! We went through a bankruptcy, were evicted from our rented house and wound up having to move to a small apartment.It took three and a half years in an intolerable, penitentary-like environment, but we were able to re-group and could buy a small house in the country in November of last year! The whole sordid story is available in The Keidel Update - our family newsletter on my website.Regards,Grumpyhttp://www.geocities.com/highwaypoet
