Oh yeah.. THAT'S why we're here!

Occasionally I will surf the Internet, looking for other Dietitian jobs in Seattle, Portland, and Sacramento. Usually I find crap, like being a Dietitian for the CA prison system..

But the other day, I got super excited when I found a full-time RD position in Portland with a home health company. I started thinking about being near Graham's family again, living closer to an actual city, being able to get *free* daycare from Graham's aunts, Graham could get an engineering degree from Washington State Vancouver and it wouldn't take as long to graduate, etc. My mind was running a mile a minute and I was thinking about actually putting an application in.

Then reality hit me like a ton of bricks.. Exactly why did we stay here in Brem Brem?

The co-op program with the shipyard, which not only allows Graham to work full-time (get paid $15/hr) and get "tenure" with the government, but provides a guaranteed job right out of college with a salary of at least $55K starting off, and also pays for school and student loans.

My spirit was quickly deflated. Oh well.. my only solace is that we will NOT live here forever!

I totally understand how you feel. I do not want to live in Utah forever and I was ready to leave last year, but alas, Ian's job is good and there is no burning need to move. I am comforted by the fact that we both agree we WANT to leave soon. It is in the works. In the meantime, I am trying to enjoy where we are. Sigh. :)
