WWYD? I need feedback, I feel like this decision is being put on my shoulders and I would love to know what you ladies would do in this situation.
My so has worked really hard, he wants to eventually be a general foreman so he can stop doing physical work (as much as he loves it) and eventually open his own utility company (he's a lineman).
Two weeks ago he finally took an offer with a new company. He got a raise/promotion and we plan on moving over to where he would be nomore than 1.5 hours from home and could be home every night. We would have a bigger home, and while further from family/friends we would be more comfortable.
Today was his first day with the new company. He's literally been at work for 2 hours and just called me with what they proposed him. They want him to work 5 hours south of where we're moving to. He would stay on his weekly schedule where he's home on the weekends, possibly could be home thursday/friday evening until sunday nights compared to the home nightly we had originally planned on. He would get a $6 raise (on top of the raise he got when he started with this company) and within a year will be in a truck as a foreman.
He's worked SO hard to get this far in 5 years, and I'm honestly extremely impressed with the ethic he's put into place making him so wanted by these companies. I told him I would have his back 100% no matter what he decided, and to chase his dream. We're used to him being gone all week and the girls know it's only temporary for the next couple of years. I would love to have him home every night, but I don't want to hinder him in any way. Sorry this is so long, wwyd? I'm going to talk to the girls after school and see what they have to say. The company wants an answer by tonight/tomorrow am at the latest. *le sigh*
