I had a 3-year search before buying Madewell cropped jeans and J Brand flared jeans last year. Not even the new money country club set! I think you can wear white pants all year. I live in the South, and anytime I hear a limit on when you can and cannot wear a certain color, I think the rule is antiquated. You can wear white pants but should you?
I think a creamy white is ok in certain circumstances but true bright white screams weekend wear to me. And the Spanx Sarah Blakey invented for white pants were the footless pantyhose that stop just above the hem of the pants. I know this because, as an Old, I was early on that bandwagon for work pants though I never wore white ones.
I have two pairs of white pants — one for weekend and one for work — and nobody would confuse which one is for each occasion. I love this idea! Something like this would be a gorg wedding look: White suits are very popular in same-sex weddings and I bet if you did a little google or pinterest with those key words you could find a perfect suit for whatever you are looking for. That moment that you discover none of the emails you have sent since 8 a.
I have a purchase contract on my first house, and my inspection is tomorrow. I want your house buying horror stories of what you wish you would have checked before you bought. My house was built in , and my inspector was really thorough. After reading his report I had no further surprises with the house itself. Keep in mind though they only look at the house, not the rest of the property.
I was however shocked by how terrible the drainage in my backyard was. Every time it rained the backyard turned into a total lake for days. Installing a drain was rather expensive and a completely unexpected expense.
I doubt I could have gotten the seller to dig up the basement floor to check, but the state of the year old sewer line pipes under my basement floor which collapsed and flooded my basement with sewage approximately 6 months after buying. My house was built in in a city, so this will hopefully not apply to you! I commented below, but PSA, you can have your plumbing expected by snaking a camera.
You can also place an offer contingent on both inspection and plumbing inspection. Our real estate agent suggested doing this because our house was old. Yes this is really worth it. For me the previous owner had only owned the house for about 4 years and had had this done when they purchased it and gotten back a clear report, which they gave me a copy of.
I was comfortable relying on it because it was so recent. The pipes were from the s, made from terracotta, and had collapsed due to grass roots growing in them. Chimney, even the one that is no longer connected to anything. We bought a house that had originally had a chimney for a coal-fired boiler in the basement. Turned out to be full of cracks that flooded the basement when it rained, so we had to get someone to come dismantle it and extend the roof over the hole.
People use way, way more electrical appliances nowadays than they did when your house was built and adding capacity can get expensive. When we bought a house last year, the inspector was careful to note that the water heaters, pool heater, air conditioner, furnace, dish washer, washer, and dryer all worked fine at that time but were probably at or near the end of their life expectancies.
In the course of buying and selling my home recently, I learned that you can become a home inspector with a few courses, as opposed to having a background in construction or any other building trade.
Make sure that yours does have a contruction background, so things can be properly identified and prioritized. Agree with this about quality of inspectors. You may get a good one or you may not. Big things have been listed—electricity, gas, and plumbing. Roof, windows, and insulation would be my next priority. Does anyone use Stylebook? Its a great creative outlet for me and helps put together outfits and track when you wear them. Its a bit labor-intensive to set it up initially either photograph all of your clothes or find pictures online but once you get going its easy to keep it up to date with new purchases.
What would you qualify as a job worth moving for? How can I tell if its worth it to move all the way to, Indiana or Arizona, for example, for just an entry level job opportunity?
If the job is a full-time job and is paying you enough to afford to live in that particular location. In fact if you are that flexible broaden your search geographically, you may find that you get multiple offers—this is presuming that you also are marketing yourself pretty well through networking and any resumes you send out.
Yes, he lived in this town and worked at this university when we got married. I should have seen the writing on the wall. I was young and stupid, I guess. I also really hate where we live right now.
DH came here for work, and I actively chose to follow instead of throw a temper tantrum that happened later, ha!
This place sucks and it seems like we will never leave. The two things that have helped me are: Do you have people like that in your life? It took us two years to make friends, so be patient. I know it sounds cheesy, but it helps. Have you had conversations with your husband about how you want to leave? This sentence above is what jumped out at me.
I also have a PhD so I understand where you are coming from. You have to bring this up and discuss it with him. The fact that his salary has not risen that high means that it is possible to move.
I am just saying this because I imagine if he was say a Distinguished Professor with a very high salary getting a similar position would be near impossible. It is possible for your husband to move but it also requires sacrifice he would have to take a step down and work his way back up to Professor again but would he do it if it means that you are happier?
I feel sorry for you because this should be a joyous occasion but unfortunately it is not. Thanks for your thoughts and kind words. We used to have those conversations.
That sounds horrendously unfair to you. Of those, the last one is the most troubling to me. Does he not care about your career at all? It seems like they were surprised by the promotion? The time to job search would have been before he was being considered for promotion to full professor, and he let that time pass by without doing anything about it.
Yeah, no way this was a surprise. You have to apply for promotion to full professor and the process usually takes at least 6 months. My sympathies to you, OP, this is the worst part of academia. If moving is really important to you, though, congratulate him on the promotion and in a few weeks try to have an open talk about this.
He submitted his dossier last August. I knew it was happening. It was his first year of eligibility, though, so I had crossed my fingers that maybe he would be turned down the first time. YES, he has been dragging his feet with full knowledge of my unhappiness.
Thanks also to Anon at 6: Unfortunately, actions, in this case, speak louder than words. OP-Why did you agree to go here in the first place? Because I…gave up on myself? Threw myself under the bus? He said he did. I will even go so far as to give him the benefit of the doubt that, at the beginning of our marriage, he in fact DID care.
But 8 years and 2 kids later, it seems that his need for stability and a housewife? He truly seems to think that I should be content with the adjunct courses PER YEAR that I can pick up at his university, and if I really need more than that, then he would be cool with me picking up another course or two at the small college on the other side of town. I am glad you are considering marital counseling and it seems that he may not change even with counseling. This sounds like a miserable situation for you and one that your husband is not really interested in improving for your benefit.
Be kind to yourself. I just…feel unheard, unvalued, unloved. So, as an alternative, could you consider applying for assistant professor jobs elsewhere and have him follow you if you get a job as a spousal hire of some sort? Thanks for adding your thoughts. But I take your excellent point that, if I want an opportunity, I should pursue it myself so I have something to put on the table for discussion.
