Not necessarily but I can't focus simply on the pay when there are other benefits to look at. Many of my colleagues have left for a bigger dollar sign and are miserable for it; the companies suck, the co-workers and staff suck, the clientele suck, and this is all in comparison to our own company so I can only imagine what it would be like there. Some of my staff suck, my clients are tough, some company policies really suck...but it's not enough to trade in the positive stuff for another job yet.

and I still believe these problems can and will arise anywhere.

So it sounds like you want to make current job work?

I am assuming Laura lost power.

He's home, dry, save and reunited with his son. Houses a block away didn't have power and were under water. His was find. Untouched. He even had power. Where he'd GONE was under water and lost power. His block at home though, unscathed. He put up some photos. It's amazing how the structures survived with all the trees and other landscaping are split into twigs.

My cousin in Miami has some damage but not bad. One of my FB friends lost a tarp on her roof that was covering a hole, and they lost the ceiling in her daughter's room (she's not too bright to begin with - it's been that way for a while). It just fully collapsed when the rain came in ... she says. IDK she's a "soon to be blocked" friend. LOL

Praying for Laura and family. Her videos were great Smile Hope her offices survived.

That is great news, Dee. I am sure Laura just lost power and will rejoin us soon.

Something else that struck me as odd, and I am not one for reading into consequences, but what were the odds that a few months after we all reconnected on here (Laura and I had not talked in years), both Laura and I end up in major hurricanes. The answer is the cities we live in of course are vulnerable to the warming ocean temperatures, but it is certainly an odd way to reconnect.

Jae: quick thought. Maybe you should apply for jobs and interview (for the sake of doing it), and decide from there. The process alone should confirm for you whether you want to stay or not? You will know how much of you is ready and wants to leave.

Not ready for that step. I wouldn't invest in even exploring options unless I was serious about leaving. That would just give me anxiety...

ROFL
It's above her tail. Not below. I mean, she does need to use the litter box. Wink
She HAS gotten in some really deep scratches though. ::sigh::
GREAT NEWS is that her wounds are healing. So it's worth every scratch and nip she dishes out.

Dee, so adorable.

So everyone in Houston is getting uneasy about the soon to be Hurricane Maria. I am starting to wonder if we just need to move.

We all need to move to the center of the country. Far from incoming weather, bombs, snow, hurricanes. The only problem is tornadoes.

There must have been thirty tornado warnings the Sunday after Harvey hit. I think I'll take my chances somewhere else lol.

Sadly I agree with Jae. Nowhere is really safe. I'd love to move south but then there are real threats of Tornadoes. We have torrents and blizzards of snow here with horribly cold temperatures but it's only a few months. The rest of the year is pretty frigging awesome. From Jan-Mar, I hate it here. And that's only because of my physical frailty. MI is a beautiful state with many wonderful sights, attractions, history, great ecological places and the Great Lakes, well 4 of them, anyway.

We were riding down at Pere Marquette beach and I realized that what I thought was just the Coast Guard at the Muskegon Channel is also the NOAA research facility.

I'm sure each of you have some historical, preservation or other attraction that makes that place special and unique. I'd LOVE to move south, but that's to an "unknown". I know what to expect here and know that it'll get worse in time. Perhaps two or three states south? It'll probably never happen. The only time I've made big moves were when I had money windfalls and that's not going to happen again in the foreseeable future.

On another note, Laura, I'm starting to get really concerned here. Sad  Have you heard from her James?

No, I have not. But I am assuming she lacks power still with some combination of a shit show on her hands.

I think I'd move away but we only have family in Houston and that's where I was from which made it easier for settling down and making the transition. But honestly I am kind of over the heat and general muckiness.

I sent her an email. Then again, perhaps we all have. ? ?

Ella's home care worker just informed me that she doesn't take the flu shot. Isn't that required of health care workers? I love her but this opens us up to increased possibility of infection. With my compromised immunity, I'm not happy to learn this. Ella has a cold so she donned her mask. Little does she realize that they don't really work to protect her from germs but protect others from her own germs, that's why they're worn in surgery.

My cat is Meowdini (houdini). She keeps escaping her PJs and tearing into her back Sad

Thank you for reaching out, Dee. That was super nice. We just got power back, and that includes my offices, so it has just been a mess.

Our house did fine, but not everyone was so lucky. However, this was nowhere near as devastating as it could have been. It was a weird week last week. I have been feeling super sick and nauseous. Turns out my husband and I are expecting (totally unexpected and unplanned). I still have not adjusted to the shock.

Anyway, I will definitely post more soon and pics.

As you see, we were all concerned but figured you were still without power. I hope this week is a little less weird.

Congrats on the little bean Smile
