Ishtar-

Wow! What a week! I've been through some similar experiences with roomates. The important thing here is to remember what you have achieved in the long run... a house at a lower rent than you current place! I reccommend seeing if your roomate wouldn't be adverse to paying some of the "cancellation fee" - maybe half is a stretch for them, but how about 1/4? You are certainly right, however, in the fact that it's silly to ruin a friendship over money issues.
As for an "extended" debt plan, it goes to show that things always seem to change, only when you're sure you've got them nailed down! However, it seems that you have a very good grasp on your finances and budget - and, most importantly, the ability to adapt to changes like these.

So good luck to you, keep being Foolish, and enjoy your new place!

Mike
