Do you ever

Just want to pick up your family and move? My hubby hates his job and is never home. But, there are no jobs here for him. There are jobs in other states, but I don't know if it would be crazy just to pick up and move if he got another job. It would be fun, but at the same time scary ... would you ever do it?

  • I have picked up and moved. If you have to go where the jobs are, definitely do it! There are good jobs out there, in fact, I am near St. Louis and they are ranked in the top when it comes to jobs in the US.

  • Yes, but not because of my husband's job. I just hate the state we're in. It's boring compared to other places I've lived in.

  • my 6yo has lived in 5 states because of that! I really enjoy experiencing new places in a way that a vacation cannot show you.

  • Yes and it was hard. My husband doubled his pay by us just moving out of Arizona doing the same thing with similiar costs up in the other state. I was pregnant and lonely as heck.
