I have the opportunity and possible chance to get a job making at least this amount a year. Thing is, just from my home, it's about an hour drive one way. The job description/major duties is EVERYTHING I did when I was in the Navy, save for maybe two things. I'm perfect for this job and my supervisor at my current temp job agrees. In fact, she's the one who told me about. Her husband works for the company needing an admin; when she found out that I'm a vet, I guess she was telling her husband about it (he's a retired Marine).
Would you drive two hours every day round trip for that annual salary?

I drove over an hour one way for less than that right after I graduated from college. I've since moved closer to my job. If the job you are considering is a step up from your current job or has more potential for upward movement and salary increases it might be worth the sacrifice in time and travel costs. You do have to remember that you will be spending more on gas and will have to replace your car sooner if you travel that much everyday. If you are going to be that far away from home each day you need to make sure you have reliable childcare and someone who can pick up your kids if they are sick (a school or daycare provider won't like waiting over an hour for you to come get a sick child). Also, If you don't foresee yourself moving closer to the new job you have to think about whether you can keep up that kind of commute long-term.
