KtC, congrats to Orc and you too if it means you'll have insurance.
I must have somehow missed reading that he has a new job. Is it in the area or not local? Only asking because I saw you mentioned on PWA that you may be moving to where you'd have a house and ground..place where family wants you, you said. Is that about his new job?
No, job is local. It is at the other University. We have two. There is a state line between them. So he has to cross the state line. He has a very nice office though. His desk is next to a large window that looks down onto a park. Very rare for IT work. He will be programming for the first time since he was a sophomore in college, that's interesting to me. He is using the language I learned a few years ago, so I have no doubt he will do fine. It does include insurance, which I believe he gets the paperwork for today. Since that state is a bit more regulated I believe there are greater options for the healthcare than there were at the university he worked at before.
Our family wants us to move in next door to my parents. My grandma currently owns the house and acreage. The plan is that sometime in the next 5 - 10 years the house and land would become ours. My sister would inherit the investments and we would inherit the house and land. My grandma, if she is still with us will move into the MIL pad at my parent's house or into care if it's needed. Since we don't actually have a house of our own, this would be a huge step up for the family. There is even a pretty intriguing school that runs through high school that the house currently sits within the zone for. Unfortunately, jobs and driving are a real issue down there - leaving your house almost always guarantees at least an hour commute. And recycling is all but non-existent. It would be a drastic lifestyle change. Oh and no public transit at all. It's down the road, but on our minds. If we turn it down, the property will be sold and still given to us, but my parents would rather we move in. They worry about what kind of neighbors they'd get otherwise
