Ever heard of cabin fever?

I have, and let me tell you it is real and it is horrible! I have not left my house in three days now. I’ve gone outside, yes, but that’s as far as I’ve gone. It is one of the disadvantages of not having any income coming in, and the income that is coming into the household not being enough. I am getting out of the house tomorrow, because when I stay at the house for too many days then I start getting angry and just wanting to sleep a lot for no reason.

J. and I have continued talking about me looking for a job abroad. As far as I have been able to figure out he is ready to do this with me. I told him the disappointing news this evening. The news that he would either have to find someone to sponsor his work visa or get married if he wanted to go with me. He stumbled over his words a bit when I told him, but we’ll see how things go because I still have some homework to do before I make a decision, then I still have to start applying and get accepted for a position.

It’s a little hard to believe that I am finally giving my dream of living abroad serious thought. I still worry about Ty though. I am looking for a message forum or a real person who has taken their children overseas and had to deal with school. Of course, how many of those were raised as country, redneck kids? The only thing I know to really do to see if he might be willing to go to wherever I’m looking at is to show him travel videos and see what he has to say.

In the meantime, I have to get out of this house before I go crazy! I am hoping to stop at the library and pick up a couple of books, and talk to someone I know from China.
