*Hi all We are back from our trip to Pittsburgh…gosh, we were so busy the entire time…we crammed in so much, it felt like we were there for a month! Went to our prior parish’s summer festival, visited relatives, went to a wedding in Gettysburg…ate at our fave spots…it was just so fun. As many of you know, we have been thinking of moving back to PA, and this trip didn’t make things easier. I did miss our ‘life’ in Florida, too. I wish we could split our time between both states…and live there evenly, but…we can’t. One of the most heart-warming moments during the trip, was we got together in our old neighborhood…we caught up with ALL of our old friends/neighbors…and they threw us the biggest party…I couldn’t believe they went to all that trouble for us! See, we just have not had that same experience in Florida…and I don’t think we ever will. It was definitely hard to leave.
Not sure what to do…we are leaving it in God’s hands. My dh loves Florida, but said he would move back there if we collectively agree it would be good for us.
Well…sometimes God brings us signs, right? I went to lunch with my boss and he asked if I ever consider moving back…I was truly shocked. I said…um, yeah…but there’s lot to consider. He said there is always a place for you here…and we can work things out to make it worth your while.
It surprised me because I have not said ONE WORD to anyone about my homesick feelings of Pittsburgh. :shrug: Very interesting twist during the trip.
So, I would not move unless I make the same money here…and since I didn’t get a raise last year, they should leave my salary as is, hopefully. My husband, being at Disney, I think he would be marketable to hotels and casinos that have gone up since we’ve been gone…around Pittsburgh.
Two things to consider…1) my son would be doing his senior year in Pittsburgh, but he seems ok with that…and 2) there are not as many ‘modern’ built homes in Pittsburgh…which is plentiful in Florida…I do LOVE where we live…so, those are my concerns. Unless we bought right away, then there would be more options…because there are more homes that are modern around our kids’ old school district, for sale.
So…would you pray for us? Would you chime in here, and let me know your thoughts? :o Thanks!*
