And so it goes, and so it goes...

Well, there's news.

Apparently for the state of South Carolina to raise my salary 25% over what I'm making now would require not only the approval of someone in the "higher ups" in DMH but also from the "even higher ups" in state government. They can go 15%, it seems, but not 25%.

So I am going to take 15%. There are many reasons, but not the least of which is I have friends here and I have a life here...and I'm having to start enough of my life over by getting a divorce. You throw in meeting new people and making a life in a place that's totally new to me, and you're going to see my head explode.

I know that there are those who were cheering for me to move to Atlanta, and I still want to eventually end up back in Georgia. Just not now. Right now I feel like my home is here, in the Upstate of South Carolina. I have been meditating, praying, crying, making pro-con lists, talking, debating, and begging whoever is up there listening to help me make the right decision. I don't think She'll steer me wrong...

Thats great Nan! No more holding pattern? I get the sense that you are starting to be able to pick up the pieces now that a HUGE part of all of this has fallen into place. You must feel a great sense of relief to get out of the limbo stage. /hugs

Well...it's still limbo. The supervisor has to go to the HR person and then the HR person still has to get approval, but I'm farther along than I was this time last night.

Whew! I know it's a relief to have this part almost over.
I'm glad you're staying here in the Upstate where I can keep my eye on you...err...eat sushi with you on a regular basis.

It'll be easier for me to help you house-hunt, too! :)

Mmmm sushi...we must go back. The rainbow roll was to die for, so I can't wait to try some of the others! Think I'll leave the Easley Roll up to you guys though... :)
