Hi there,

Ok, second try. We are finally going to do it. Move from this state of Maryland, that I have lived all of my life and settle down in North Carolina. I don't know why it took us so long to take the big leap. I do know that it is extremely scarey. Sometimes, it is even horrifying (sp). Here we are, at our age, with great jobs, wonderful friends,a terrific church, a nice home, and family. Yet, we are going to leave it all behind. Relocate in North Carolina, the vacation spot of this family for the past 20 years. It has been a dream that we just refused to let die. Even after all of this time, family and friends were beginning to just think it was just talk. In fact, I was starting to believe that it was just a fantasy. One day I just woke up and said, 'Let's do it today!' Once we started talking about it and making some plans, there was no stopping us. I have to say, that it happened quite fast. Now, we are in a place of concern because we don't know exactly where is the right place for us. We have always traveled down to the Outer Banks, but practically speaking, it is not the best place to find a very good job to support a family unless you have enough money to start a business or something like that. We really love New Bern, but wonder if it is too sleepy for a teenager. Wilmington looks very busy and reminds me of Ocean City. Yuck! Havelock is very military and has some sleeze. Morehead City and Beaufort are very attractive to us with the beach and all, but again, where is the work for a man who has 32 years experience as a maintenance mechanic in a factory. He can also do all kinds of home improvement and is considering working for himself as a local handyman. Still, we need something dependable to begin with. We have looked at some wonderful homes, but until work is established we are hesitant in purchasing a home before the job. Or, do we place a contract on a home first and believe that the job with come? Scarey isn't it. All of this is going on in my mind and keeping me up at night is the hope that my daughter, (you know who you are) will come home and rethink her life. Love ya Hon. So, I guess the reason I am writing all of this to perfect or not so perfect strangers, is because I would love some advice and help. Especially if you are a NC local and live in any of those places that I mentioned, please reply with suggestions and advice. If you know of a good job that you could reccomend let me know. I sincerely appreciate it, please. Thanks. MS
