We’re moving to NorCal!
The word is sufficiently out at my workplace, so I feel comfortable sharing this with you guys – even though we don’t have firm plans yet. You maybe could have guessed if you are super astute (slash stalker) blog reader. [I did say T got two great offers, one in town and one in NorCal... then went radio silent on the topic!]
So, I’m really excited about this! I love California, and I am soooooo looking forward to exploring a new area. I’ll miss my beach life here (I will never get sick of the beach life!!!), but there is a lot more to discover there, and I’m excited. As long as I have somewhere to run, I’m happy. And we will join a wine club!
Consequently, I’m quitting my job. I love my job. It really has turned into a dream job over the past couple of years, and I couldn’t ask for better. This was not a decision that we made lightly. I was always prepared for the possibility of this, but I honestly wasn’t prepared for the reality. It has been tough to come to terms with it, but I only accidentally cried once at work when telling people. I know that it is the right decision. Actually, that isn’t true. We are still really torn about whether or not it was the right decision, but it is the decision we made.
I’m also leaving my company. My company is big enough that I could quit my job and stay in my company. This would have been somewhat possible, but geographically inconvenient. Also, if there was ever a time to try something new, now is that time. Therefore, I’m trying something new.
I’m trying to leave my industry, and attempting to break into an entirely new area, for a variety of reasons. I think I’m on the verge or an offer (:::fingers crossed::::). More details if I’m successful at getting an offer and coming to agreeable terms. If I fail, you never get to know!
Best of all, the long distance marriage will soon to become a REGULAR NORMAL marriage!
More to come!
