Question, you said you were posting to eat crow. But you never said why you were eating crow?

Because in the other humongous thread, many people told me that my SO needed to get a job, and I said that he would make it in real estate alone. Now I'm saying, "You know what? You're right."

I've never been self-employed - not for very long stretches anyway. It's a very different mind set from a regular 9 - 5 job. I wanted to support him the best way that I knew how, and if he said he could make it doing real estate alone, I wanted to support him in that. But if he's willing and eager to take a side job until he does make it in real estate, that's even better!

Ah, I see. Thanks, that was puzzling me. It's not very important compared with the rest of your news :) I know, I was just puzzled and even re-read to try to figure it out before asking.
