Five of the eight years of my relationship have been long-distance. Yesterday, my girlfriend got an offer for a job an hour away from me. (It was, frankly, surreal to be following the terrible news from Boston to be interrupted with a burst of amazingly good news.)

I am very, very hung over right now.

Nice news, ETO.

Wife looks like she's headed back to her old job.

Old job was extremely easy, very little work, really no oversight, and she could handle it working half-days and working from home 50+% of the time, but all promotion roads led out of town. Amazing lifestyle, fantastic benefits, but a dead end. She left it in hopes of taking her career to the next level, which she sort of did in title. But the new job turned out to be little of what was promised and came with tons of stress, longer hours, a miserable commute, and a fairly fucked work/life balance.

A few years on, with a child a few years older, my career more settled, and our own situation a little more settled (we weren't married then, we are now), she is able to focus less on career and more on family and lifestyle, and this is going to make both of us (and our child) infinitely more happy.

Best of all, I think she herself is giddy over this, as opposed to going in with reservations or a sense of defeat. This is a tremendous development for us.

Doug, glad to hear the good news but I am worried. Will this adversely impact Muffy?
post #30927 of 44832
glad for you, Douglas!
post #30928 of 44832
Muffy is already screwed. She was just passed over for promotion, in a very public way.
