12. Can you hang with it until the spring? It's always harder
to find solutions and options in the winter, somehow. If you can make a deal with yourself to wait just 90 days, it'll be April and your options may have improved dramatically by then.

I understand what you're saying and thinking, but can you and Jennifer take it a month at a time? I realize there's the upcoming investment in tires ... but I remember all the consideration and thought and work you put into this choice you've made - being an independent contractor - and I think you should just give yourself through the spring to see what options arise then. :shrug:
