Next Stop: Tulsa, Oklahoma

PC; FREQUENT WANDERER (defending Tulsa)
Danny has officially accepted an offer with a dentists' group in Tulsa. I feel much like CHANDLER ON FRIENDS.

We really are excited at this opportunity. It really was an offer we couldn't refuse. The cost of living in Tulsa is cheap. The people of Tulsa are great. (and plus they actually go to the dentist). It will be an amazing place to ditch all of our DEBT.

 We can't wait to to be near family and old friends (I grew up near Tulsa) but are sad to say goodbye to other family and friends. And also sad that we're not moving to the beach. (I digress).

Anyway, I haven't found a job yet so if you need an attorney in the Tulsa area, I'm your girl!

Searching for rental income properties is no joke. We're in kind of a weird situation. We're trying to get pre-approved for a mortgage BUT we have 1) me- who is about to change jobs/might be jobless upon moving and 2) danny- who hasn't worked for a million years, but has an employment contract which identifies guaranteed income per month.

We have an income to debt ratio that might make some lender's hearts beat fast, but, we also have options such as IBR, PAYE, etc etc to sign up for. But, we also cannot sign up for those options until his loans go into repayment, in June when he graduates.

Anyway, it has complicated the process of getting pre-approved for a mortgage with all of this craziness going on.

Me, getting pounded at Pounders. Its a metaphor. 
Its also tricky being at a distance and maintaining full time jobs/school and trying to schedule in looking at properties. Not to mention the cost of traveling to go look at those properties, sheesh!

What do you think? Are we in over our heads? Is it worth it??
