  • Ok so Mike is traveling this week, to help out the Pepsi in Rhode Island. He has been training for a higher management position, and was told a few months back, that once a positipon came up around New England he would most likely be offered the job. They will pay for the re location and all if and when he got the job. He told me this and promissed me nothing would happen till after I had thebaby. The last hting i need to think about is relocating, and moving away from my family whom i am super close to, and being alone with 2 kids, 18 motnhs apart in age. I have put teh thought in the back of my head, until this week. When they asked him to go travel this week, his supervisor told him they would probably be offering him the job as manager at theis location in Rhode Island. There are definitely cons, more money, working days rather then nights, having a house rather then a condo, etc. But I am not ready or able to even contemplate the thought of relocating any time soon. the thougth is scary is causing me so much stress and anxiety. I suffer from panic disorder, and have been having attacks since he told me. I can't imagin the thought o fleaving my whole family to move to a plce where i know noone, and will be a 2 hour car drive away from family. i feel selfish thinking who will help me, but the reality is i am gonna need help, and noone will want to drive that far to help. I just hope the topic does not come up on this trip, and they let me finish my pregnancy beofre i have to make this decision!

  • Wow, I can understand how scary it is, especially since you are so used to having your family there for support.
    the timing works out for you and you can put your worry on the back burner.

  • I hope it works for you. It sounds like there are a lot of pros here, and two hours is not really very far in the scheme of things. I moved 2,000 miles away from my family when I relocated, and for the most part it's ok. Just relax and take things as they come.

  • I am sure it will all work out for you. Definetely sounds like some great pros. We live 5 hours from the inlaws and 2 1/2 from mine, and it works out, and you adjust, if it turns out you end up moving, I know you will be able to make the best of it!

  • i wish there was something i could say that would make it better for you.

    i cannot even imagine how stressful that would be and i hope that you dont have to go through that until after Gavin is born. maybe you can move to calfornia and leave close to me?
