It has been nearly one year since my last update. It has been a hard time for us. David did find another job, but it pays $3 less per hour. I am still looking. Our debt has increased, we are now in default on our mortgage, though that should be remedied soon. Keeping our food budget under control continues to be a struggle, the debt is such that until I'm working we cannot eliminate it. My weight is up another 30 pounds and I'm fairly certain it is my obesity that is keeping me from job offers.
After extensive research, my tiny home dream is on hiatus as long as we live in SE Wisconsin. It is nearly impossible to get zoning that would allow only a tiny home on a property.
