Thanks for all replies. Plan was always for me to manage it, in fact that would be my (ideally part time) job. Both kids will be in school all day soon.

As you pointed out, reallyalldone, my DH is more professionally suited to kicking doors down than hanging them. In fact, I am the family handyman (was just at Lowes this AM, in fact). His only job in all this will be to meet people with me and be the more...imposing face. (Ill be scheduling, running credit checks, researching leases, fixing small things, painting, arranging repairs and remodels, etc)

As to whether I'm forcing him... Well, I don't want it to be a terrible thing in our marriage, but over the years we have pursued ALL of his professional dreams, which involved great sacrifice by the entire family. This is what I want, what I have wanted for years. It's my turn. Maybe that's b*tchy, but it's the truth. And furthermore, he has pointed out the money people have renting to the new troopers. (That is, ideally, our plan). He is just nervous about new ventures sometimes. And he realizes all the work involved in this, I'm sure. :-)

Again, thanks for the feedback, I love it!
