Background: we moved in March about 3 hours away from the area I had lived my whole life to be closer to my stepdaughter. I have been having a difficult time being away from "home" and further from my mom. I started a job at a clinic in May, and so far I have really been liking it, except the fact that I'm making $1.50 less an hour as an LPN than I was as a CNA.
The past couple of weeks I've been browsing LPN jobs in our previous area. I applied for 3 total. Well, the HR department called me yesterday and I have an interview on Friday. I am having mixed feelings about it.
The pros of possible new job: better pay, located closer to friends and my family, it's in the area where I would like to buy a house (we plan to buy a house later this fall/winter), I would back in a hospital instead of a clinic, would be much easier to go back to school, would likely be able to start classes this fall, and this in turn would likely push TTC forward.
The cons of possible new job: probably more stress (job is on mental health unit), I would be back on 2nd shift (which would be better school-wise, but worse family wise), we'd have to move (again!) within like a month, we'd be 3ish hours away from my stepdaughter again.
What would you do? I am trying to see the best of both sides so I won't be disappointed one way or the other. I'm trying to be at peace, so I can just go with the flow and trust in the universe that if it's meant to happen, it will. So, if you don't have any advice, just some peaceful thoughts would be much appreciated!
