Expanding The Search

Well, I'm still looking for a job. Hooray. I did look into a couple of work at home opportunities but they weren't something I was comfortable doing in so far as relying on it for steady and full time income.

Yesterday we went down to see my dad and he told us that after my grandfather has passed he plans on moving down south to be with his girlfriend and wants us to take over his house. That is his exact plan. Now, when it will be implemented I do not know as it all depends on when Grandpa passes away and how long the whole legal process that happens after the fact takes. We have always loved the place my dad lives at. Always. And it's in a great area.

As a result of that conversation yesterday I am starting to look for jobs in the state just south of us. Where we would be living once we move in there is literally a hop, skip, and a jump to the border. So it would make sense. For now, it would really suck but I'm thinking long term. Even before my dad brought all that up yesterday Master and I were planning on moving south of where we are anyway.

Why I didn't look into the next state before I don't know. Maybe because I didn't really know how close to the border we would be. But now? Hell yeah I'm going to apply for jobs there.

Master and I were sitting outside for a while today and I discussed it with Him and He agreed that it would be a good idea. Once I got back inside I called my mom since she drives all over the place for her job to ask her how far away certain cities were from where she is. She gave me a rough estimate and basically told me not to go past such and such a city. Awesome. I thanked her for the information and applied to a job down there.

Another reason why I decided to start applying in that area is because I get a lot more job notifications for those areas than I do around here. I think that expanding my job search down there will help my possibility of finding a job sooner rather than later.

Hopefully expanding the job search pays off quickly.


  1. that's so exciting for you both! and such a positive thing to come out of your grandpa's situation
