No Georgia.

As soon as we thought we were sure about something, it changed.

Originally we were told that if we took the position in Georgia, we'd make at least what we are making now and have a lower cost of living - giving us the ability to save up a significant amount of money.

The official offer came in today at quite a bit less than what we are making in Key West to account for the lower cost of living in Georgia. Basically we wouldn't get anywhere financially and would have about the same amount of money.

In my opinion that's just not worth it. We've decided that the only reason to move from Key West is either to get ahead financially (and by a lot, not just a little) or to move HOME.

So, we're going to take the offer from the new company in Key West and work on the Washington/Oregon opportunities, and take them as soon as they are something that is worth our packing up and moving.

If you are in the Portland/Vancouver or Columbia Gorge area and think you know of a good job for me, let me know!

Good to find that out before you sank any money into moving preparations. Something will turn up.

Hey if you're willing to provide a good salary and benefits, I'll do it!

I know how you feel. It is never fun to have to figure out major moves like that. Good luck!

I don't know about salary, I can provide good celery though. The benefits are that you're cooking for me and you get to see Monica.
So are your bags packed?
