How do you know when to (or when not to) blog?

Ever feel like it's not as bad, or as real or as scary or whatever if you don't write it down?
We are wanting to move from Texas. Kathy has been applying for jobs within her profession since the end of May. The very first one she applied for sort of/almost/kinda hired her, but just hours before their HR dept could call her, the funding for hiring was pulled. The next one wanted to hire her but offered entry level wages at best. Another wanted to hire her, but warned that the job was really just temporary, and once she had completed the task they would either move her to a totally different career or part time her out the door. Another one looked VERY promising, but in the final match-up of her and one other applicant, they chose the other person.

The funny thing is, just last week, Kathy received another email from the first job, saying that they are still working on getting the funding back, and that she is next to be hired when they do. She keeps looking and applying, but since this is such a specialized field, there are only so many jobs out there. To give you some idea of how small a field we are talking about... this morning there are only 41 job listings in the USA for her exact job.

It's tough trying to decide how much of the house to pack up since we have no idea how long it will be sitting here. If the move is not going to happen for another 6 months, I would really like to have an awful lot of that stuff back out of the boxes. But if they call tomorrow, she could be expected to be there in 2 weeks. I would like to have as much as possible already packed and out of the way if that should happen. How do you chose what to pack up and how much of it?

At least I know not to pack my needles LOL
