Thanks Jason, yes, I have about 6 months saved, and yes, I'm in a specialized field. So, if I get work outside that, I'll make half.
The one response I've gotten said I'm overqualified, but they'd consider me if I lived in NH. And, it is clear they couldn't pay what I'm used to.
So, you summed it up nicely. My lady friend has offers in Kansas City, where savings goes twice as far. It will be a tough sell to pick an apartment, farther away, without a job.... her job ends July 29.
Can I get an apartment for me and 2 kids, without a job? getting scary.
