Why exactly does he want to take this job?  How hard would it be for you to get a job in Cleveland?  That’s something you always need to consider when moving.  Also, will you be able to take a leave of absense from your jobs and be able to return afterward?  Will they pay for moving expenses and any visas that are necessary for you to enter the US?  I know you have a lot of things floating around in your head, those are just a few more things to consider.

(These aren’t questions that you need to answer here, just things to think about.)

Take Cleveland out of the picture and decide if moving across the continent to another country is a good idea.  It sounds like it is a good career move for him but are you dependent on his salary?  Will it stall his career if he doesn’t take it?  Is it a good enough move that it is worth the sacrifice of being away from family and friends?  If the answer to the above questions are no, then you probably have your answer.

I grew up in Cleveland.  Like any place, it has it’s bad points and good points (between Darling Husband and I, we’ve lived in Germany, Phoenix, Chicago and Atlanta).  The good probably outweigh the bad.  The worst parts are the job market and the weather–which is why we live in ATL.  If we could find (and keep) good jobs in CLE, we would probably deal with the weather.  If you have any questions about it, PM me and I will be happy to help.

I don’t have any advice about making the move any easier, but I do live in Cleveland and know the area pretty well.  If you need any recommendations, please don’t hesitate to PM me.  Good luck!

Too funny, our saga continues! How many more coincidences can there be? I am actually originally from Cleveland. It’s not that bad! In fact it’s a great place to live- the suburbs, of course. I often wish we could move back but Darling Husband loves Boston too much. The cost of living in Cleveland is soo much better though! Anyway, it sounds like it is too much for you guys to consider moving that far right now, and I think Toronto is a great plan b. I have family in Toronto and it’s a great place. But, if you do decide to look into CLE more send me a PM and I can answer any questions you might have! I even know some psychologists and possible employment places (community mental health centers, etc).

@albertagrl:Haha, I know. Too funny. Sounds like you made the right decision though. So will this move delay your TTC plans or no?
