We just returned from a two week vacation back home. It was really nice to spend two Mondays on recreations versus in the office.
46 Mondays left!
One of the bigfest decisions weighing on us is whether we will head back to Illinois right away or delay to keep our youngest in the same high school for all four years. To stay in Maryland, I will have to find a fulltime position that pays as well as where I am now. The cost of living here is significantly higher than the Midwest. From housing expenses to tax on my pension, it would take quite a bit to make living here affordable after I retire.
I guess I will have to keep plotting and scheming to see how this shakes out.
