What happens when your tenant loses his job, and moves out? Then it takes 2 or 3 or 4 months to re-rent the house? Can you handle that possibility?

Alternative: You have a great job probably but it's stressful. A lot of people would be very thankful to have such a job right now. Remember, your employer is not responsible for your happiness or fulfillment. They are just responsible for giving you a decent workplace and a paycheck. It is up to you to find some way to de-stress yourself and become happier. An inexpensive hobby, exercise routine, community service, volunteer work, even a personal spiritual renewal. One day a week where you do NOT think about your job; do you plan your time off? Or does it zip past you without any real rest occuring and all of a sudden it's Monday again? A mini-vacatione every few months? Just a 4 day weekend w/ your wife someplace nearby can really be a stress buster.
