DH had a job interview on Thursday with a company in CT 2 hrs away. The area is really nice, right on the water, he loved the environment of the job and is overall very excited. Would you move?
New house, more to do, more opportunity for the kids to do activities like gymnastics or hockey, DH's salary increase would give us an extra $1000-2000 a month (given they offer us the amount we think).
We would be leaving my mom alone (my brother is leaving for college in August), so that's the biggest issue, also we have to sell our current house in an awful market, moving with 2 toddlers out of state, fear of being isolated since I will be a SAHM in a brand new environment with no friends.
So, WWYD? DH and I have never felt so conflicted in our entire lives. We feel this is a good thing, but we also fear making a mistake. Plus, it's really hard to leave my mom alone. She's really close with my kids and me, but 2 hrs isn't that bad... is it? I need opinions! I realize this is mine and DH's decision, but I need a 3rd party. Plus, I haven't told my mom about this possibility at all.
