I had made a post about my job a little while ago. It's been going great. Week at home(working at my normal mine) and a week at the mine in WV. Been going well. Wife has adjusted(and went to part time) and I have to a degree. Living out of motels gets old and lonely.
I am home this week going back Monday to spend my week out of town. My boss got out of a meeting at the main office at 10pm and called me and said he had been promoted to maintenance director at a corporate level and I am being promoted to his assistant if I want it. Of course I want it. I'd be higher than all my bosses that I have HATED forever. And my goal has always been to be corporate and a B function manager.
Here is the kicker. I have to relocate down there permanently. Incentives to this? They are numerous and include money beyond my wildest dreams. More than I ever thought I a boy who barely graduated high school and failed out of college could ever obtain. Relocation money including a 20% down payment on a house of my choice and several other very attractive offers.
It's 2 hours away from home. Home from the town I grew up in. From a house that I love. From my parents. My wife's family and every thing I know and love.
My wife woke up when the phone ran (she is used to my phone ringing and didn't think much of it) I told her the news and the words out of her mouth were when do we leave? She wants to go(and this would enable her to be a full time stay at home mom) Especially with the developments that I can't mention(my prayer request). Being away from here would be a great improvement for my step daughter. And my wife isn't all that close with her family.
I am at a complete loss. Money isn't everything as i well know. And money isn't an issue now. We are comfortable and basically live a pretty worry free life when it comes to money. I love my parents. I love this little crap hole town and i want my kids to know all their grandparents.
Argh. Too much on my mind now. I'll never sleep tonight.
If I did take this would it be strange to not sell my current home? I love this house and want to come back here when this is done. May be 20 or 25 years but yeah
