Did someone roll a 5 or an 8? ;)

 

Thanks so much for the warm welcomes--it's great to be back.  Man do I ever feel out of it.  I thought getting through Thanksgiving (US) and arriving in Oklahoma would let me get back in the groove, but it's been a roller-coaster of emotions as I've been dealing with new relocation-related hurdles seemingly every day.  Fitness hasn't been the furthest thing from my mind, but it's been a contender.

 

New challenge post is slightly delayed, but I'll link it here when it's ready to go.  It'll be nice to recap 2015 and then get moving in the right direction again.

 

I'd hug you all if I could. B)  Now let's kick this pig...

I'd say offer 1 would be a no go, if you're looking at starting a family then potential deployments is a shitty thing to have looming over you, especially with a 20k pay cut.  I'd say offer 3 sounds the best because you didn't seem to love your previous job although I'm not sure if it was partially related to what you were doing or if it was wholly your place of employment.

You know, JC, I think I'd go with Offer 3. The only thing that'd put me off is the distance, and since the max. drive time home is actually 50 mins less than the max drive time home for the other two, if you can get a decent work life balance with that commute I'd say go for that one.

Well seeing how they all involve an insane commute, how big of a deal is the extra 20 minutes for option 3?

Offer 1 is my throw away due to the huge salary difference. Offer 3 is the most tempting and my leaning currently, but 140+ miles on my car 5 days a week which is 33.6K miles a year. I might be getting that hybrid vehicle sooner than expected. on average the commutes time are almost the same, but there is only one route for offer 2 and if there is a car accident or it is friday afternoon the minimum drive time jumps to at least 3 hours. I'm leaning towards offer 3 as well because of the topic that I would be dealing with (will reveal that on line after work).  I might just need to get an audible subscription and start going through all the books I won't have time to read.

 

Thanks for the input.

I agree with the other doodlies. Option 3 sounds best.

About the distance: a friend of mine worked a 2/3 hour drive away from home for some time. She had a small apartment near work. She worked longer days, and spent the night in that apartment. By working longer days she didn't have to work on Friday's and could go home Tuesday night until Monday morning. I don't know if that is an option for you?

Sadly this wouldn't be able to work. My mortgage is going to be just over 2K a month and then if I were to get a secondary apartment it would be at least 1K a month. I couldn't reasonably afford 3K in just rent/mortgage payments. However doing 10 hour work days could be a possibility, but 14 hours a day between commuting and working 4 days a week doesn't sound very good especially when you add cooking, cleaning, school, working out and I like to get 8 hours of sleep a night....

batch cooking, saving the cleaning for the weekend, school on Friday's when you're home, working out during lunch breaks, try to find someone to ride with so you can sleep in the car.

 

I've got a problem for every solution! Oh wait...
