In all honesty I saw this coming, and a large portion of me is agitated at myself for not leaving sooner and forcing the move

But my wife has made a number of “compelling” arguments for staying in Denver. Instead of getting a nice place on a reasonable plot with a workshop, I get to look forward to moving into another 60+ year old brick shithouse with really nothing I would want in a place. To say I’m disappointed would be an understatement.
