Why in the world would I want to move to Maryville, TN?
Thursday, May 26, 2011
I am sure it is a lovely place to live. But that is what I said to my husband when he told me that he MAY get transferred to Knoxville IN ABOUT A YEAR. WTH ! I do understand WHY his boss asked him if he was interested in going to Knoxville. A couple of years ago the company opened a branch in Chattanooga. At that time they asked my husband if he wanted to go there because he mentioned in a casual conversation that he would love to live in the Smokey Mountains. We visit there at least once a year. Visiting and living there are two completely different things. He poured over maps and city stats and decided he did not want to go to Chattanooga. When he turned that down, he said to keep him in mind if they ever opened a branch in Knoxville. Well here we are. They are planning to open Knoxville in about a year from now.
We are planning a trip there in June to see if I would like to live there. I have to decide that in a week? HUH? His boss suggested living in Maryville. By the way, he lives in Georgia, so I don't know how much he knows about the area.
At this point, I have mixed feelings about it. Our children are 12 and 9. I want to do what's best for them. I also worry about finding a house. We built our present house. And what about a job for me? Speaking of which...I will have to continue this blog later...we are getting busy at work.
