So, been trying to find a new career cause i was burnt out with IT work...Blah Blah Blah...Long story short, im going to stay in IT and got offered a new Job making the same amount of money i make now but in a new city, Austin, Tx. I currently live in Dallas, Tx...Have a wife and two small kiddos...10 & 6, and own a home. The new company wont pay for me to move but it seems like a great opportunity, plus personally i think Austin is a better town, specifically Pflugerville. If i take the job i will be Monday - Friday in A-town and come home Friday night through Monday morning in D-Town until my house sells, leaving the wife and kids in Dallas until the home sells. We've lived in Dallas our entire lives. My wife is a nurse so i dont think she would have a problem finding a job. Ive never done a move like this and im scared, excited, nervous, etc. Advice, Opinions, etc....Please.
