I've lived in one small town my entire life. My husband grew up around here, so both of our families are here. We have a 21 month old son, and am due with our 2nd in January.
DH just found out on Friday that his job is being eliminated in January. The company doesn't want to lose him, so they offered him the same job, 10 hours away in Texas.
It would be in a town about the same size we live in now. The cost of living is cheaper and the climate would be nice year round. The company is willing to fly us out there to check the place out.
There are no job opportunities around here in his field. They don't open up very often. He feels like if we stay here, he'd be stuck working a college-type job that he would hate in a few years. I do in-home daycare, so I would be able to do my job whether we move or not.
My parents are sooo sad that we may be moving. They are what is holding us back. I feel bad because we would be having our parents' 2nd grandbaby and then moving right away. I think of all the small things I would miss with my family. It makes me miserable thinking about leaving them, but I don't want my husband to be miserable working here.
I guess I'm just looking for success stories or advice. We are so torn and don't know what to do!!
