    Default I've got a secret.

    Ok, so it's not something huge and juicy but I can't tell anyone IRL just yet because it's not 100%.

    I think we are moving from TN to Minnesota!!!

    DH was offered a position several months back but we turned it down because I was pregnant with Alex. Another one in the same area has opened. It's a huge move, it would make us about 14 hours away from family. DH has NEVER left our town so the change would be the most drastic for him.

    I am very nervous about this and not sure how I feel. I don't like change. I moved around way too much when I was a kid and have been very happy to stay in the same place for 10 years. We wouldn't really be getting a raise because I would not be making money as a nanny anymore so we would just be breaking even. I really, really hate the idea of being that far away from anyone I know with a new baby. Despite all of these reasons to not go, I know DH really wants to take it. It's a huge promotion for him and I know he was sad about turning it down the first time.

    Just think good thoughts. I don't really know what I want to happen but we should be finding out something concrete in the next couple of weeks.

    I'll be keeping your possible move in my prayers Nancy. It will all work out if God opens that door. How exciting! KUP ok?

    wow that's a lot for you to process and decide on I know there's a lot of other things to consider like you mentioned (being away from family etc)..but as far as just the money part, could you get a job as a nanny there after you settled? Then you would just be breaking even only for a little while. I hope you guys can come to a decision you both like

    Minnesota is great but I'm sure a huge adjustment for you. Will you be in the twin cities area or elsewhere? Lots of Archivers stores in the twin cities

    That is a huge move. We made that move on our wedding day in 1998, but we were able to move back to TN 4 years later. I hope everything works out for you guys. The winters are freezing, but the summers are really nice.

    I love how all us MN (or in my case practically MN) girls are hoping it's near where we are.

    You will definitely be in my prayers Nancy.
