Dh has been unemployed a year and a half. He's part of the trade act program (fortunately!) and they're putting him through school, but there's that nagging little thought of 'what if he can't find work when it's all done?' We're currently in NW Washington, and prices real estate is beyond expensive, definitely a sellers market. I keep wondering if it would be plausible to sell and buy something with the equity...oh, to have it all paid off! If it weren't for a mortgage here, we could probably swing it... But what does one do for a living in other states? Those places with Andy Griffith and Barney Fife....where everything is still black and white?
