Re: Whoa Put on the Breaks North Carolina Uh Maybe NOT

Hey guys we had the quiet calm discussion last night, the wife really is on my side. She just has some issues from way back that as far as she is concerened will be dealt with when she talks to her sister and parents. She is behind whatever I decide to do, and really does want to move out of New Jersey.

A friend of mine told me to take a bottle of wine pour two glasses have one with the wife when the bottle is half full take out a coin call heads or tails and flip it and do what the coin says. well we did it and the coin was On the MONEY!

I will head down out of Newark sooner than later/ Heck I am gonna do MY OWN THING and seriously I can have as little contact with the wifes family, as I want. They are NOT MY FAMILY!

MY FATHER and sisters are 100% behind my idea of getting out of the stressfull crappy job in Newark.

Hey as I have always said. IT IS ALL GOOD, at least I HAVE SOME WONDERFUL OPTIONS!

Newark Dear God!

How about this: Consider teaching overseas with the government. There used to be work for teachers at American outposts hither and yon. (I think OAP has experience in Yon.) State department, I believe. You have the credentials. (Mother Mary, you could probably teach in Baghdad!)

Ha! Hi justin. When my brother enrolled in NC public school (25 years ago) from NY the teacher asked, "Are you a yankee, or a damn IBM yankee?" I love that.

newguy88,
apply for a job here. The kids have to be very disciplined or their /mom/dads get grilled by CO.

Nice place to live.

Is there a difference?

I grew up in an IBM yankee neighborhood in Cary. All the IBM yankees were fine. After they had about 20 years to adjust to life down here.

My wife works for a company that is relocating tons of employees out of NYC and into the Research Triangle Park. Everyone is amazed at the half million dollar mansions they can buy down here. They go to Chapel Hill (the most expensive area of the Raleigh-Durham area) and ogle the cheap housing there. :

Re: Whoa Put on the Breaks North Carolina Uh Maybe NOT

newguy, it occurs to me that you need to spend some time looking around for a good place to live. Seems like something you would require time to pursue, so maybe something to do after you retire?
