Love Hate relationship

Ok so know this isn't Shelly posting this one it actually is the husband Kevin. I know its crazy right. Ok so on to my title with the love/hate relationship I have with I guess myself. I love that I have one of the greatest wifes ever. The best family any person can come into immediate and extended and by law families. I have great parents that have shown me unconditional love and support through all bad mistakes made. They have taught me the value of a dollar and how important it is to have a good work ethic. To good according to my wife who thinks I put work first more times than not which is probably true. I love that I live to the fullest and really don't care that I'm not rich. I'm comfortable and happy and thats all that matters. I work for a company called Hill-Rom. They are a specialty bed company that delivers beds and medical equipment to Hospitals. They have been around for over 75 years. I love the job and I can move wherever I want that has a service center in the states which is just about anywhere. I recently made employee of the quarter for my territory and received 30 shares of the company as well. Which right now is worth over 1200. So needless to say they like me and I like them. Shelly will be going to school in the fall for her RN. She has another job at the Taj Mahol of Surgery Centers in Amarillo paying very well and is going to work around her school schedule. All good news right? It is. Now to what I hate about myself. I have recently been looking into a change of scenery. I don't know what it is about me but I can't stay still for to long I like Amarillo, I like the East Coast but I just can't stay still. My new hotspot for a place to live is Seattle Washington. Its definetly the most beautiful place I've ever seen. I've been doing research into it and the cost of living isn't to bad its more less like living in Baltimore or Washington D.C. or even Philidelphia. So as far as the cost goes its not that bad. Now realistically we wouldn't even move until Shelly is out of school. But man I got that itch and really can't wait till then. I lived in the middle of the states, lived on the east, now its time to live on the west. Who knows maybe that will be the last move probably not though. Seattle has two to three service centers to choose from and they are always looking for people. Shelly says I have alot of wants but somehow we always make it work. Oh yeah I do have to still convince my wonderful wife to sign on to this adventure as she doesn't know yet thats our next big move. So good luck to me and maybe I'll start writing more so check back. Oh yeah congrats to my cousin Adam for being a dad!

Hi Kev. . . good to hear from you! Now go get me a stick so I can smack you wit it!

Geesh!

You should find a way to scratch that "itch to move" without actually moving all the time! Seriously. Take it from someone who has moved all the time. . . settling is much nicer. Besides, you'll never build equity in your home and things like that if you keep moving.

Try taking vacations to the places you want to live. Even multiple vacations. . . . you don't have to *move* there to enjoy the character and scenery of the places you want to go!

Give it a shot :) All the fun, and no commitment. No packing, quiting jobs (Shelly) and all that other stuff. And the best advantage? You get to stay near family!

Now, where's my stick?
