I looked at the whole country.............well only the warm places. The Carolinas were the first place I started to think about, but they can get hurricanes and ice storms and be cool to cold in the winter,none of which are appealing to me.And I know that is a broad generalization, not all of that area is like that,but I just had the mind set that getting as far away from east coast weather of any sort was the right choice for me. I just had a really good talk with my brother who is the most sensible and practical person I know and really helped me come to the conclusion that if it all feels right in the small time frame that I have been here.That the life that I want just is not possible back home,with no chance of truly being happy,then the only choice I have is the one that I made happen in front of me. I really do very much like I here. And know I can make it work with some compromise,planning and work.So I will fly home on Tuesday and then begin to plan a move,take the job,looking at everything as open door with chance for something better. No I did't find a place yet but now I know what I am looking for and sort of what to expect. So that when I do show up all Clampet style I can quickly get the right place to live,I have time to think about and plan this out.
