Hello fellow DisDads. I'm coming to you today because I'm facing a really tough decision, one that will impact my life and more importantly, my family, greatly. Without putting you guys to sleep with boring details, basically I'm being offered an opportunity to move to a new job. The move would be somewhat of a lateral move, but to a bigger paper. I'd be in a bigger city, with greater opportunities. Sounds good, right? Well, the problem is that I've never left home. I've lived in this general area my entire life. This move would take us only 5-6 hours away, but it would take us to a completely different culture with completely new people. My kids are 7 and 4, so it would also take them away from their grandparents, one set in which they're very close and spend just about every weekend there. Truth be told, I'm scared as hell. I feel like a fresh start in a new place may be what we need. Things have gotten pretty stale here and certain family relationships are starting to become strained. So many concerns litter my head that I sometimes have to just stop thinking about it for fear of a migraine. Just the idea of moving, having to try to sell our house (which is an issue all together), finding a new place there, finding a job for my wife, finding a place for our kids to go to school/pre-K. The job will be different also, but I feel like I'll be able to handle that change the easiest. I don't know anybody there, so cultivating sources will be difficult at first, but I've been doing this long enough to make a quick transition. There are pluses to the move, though. I know I'm probably making it sound like it's a horrible move. It's a nice place to live, it's a beach community and the schools there are all very nice, for the most part. And the best part? We'd be Florida residents and only 5-6 hours from Disney World. Anyway, what say you DisDads? Have any of you faced the scenario of uprooting your entire family to a completely new place? How did you handle it? What did you learn from the experience? Did you regret it? I have so many questions, so many concerns and I just felt the need to put them out there. If you're not comfortable responding here, feel free to send me a PM. Thanks in advance.
