Quote from CarolineRn
Kris, my husband's grandfather (90 years old) has lived there his whole life, and my husband used to spend all his summers up in Alpena. We were just there last week, drove up US 23 along Lake Huron-- OMG, it was soooooo beautiful! I fell in love with E. Tawas-- and all points north. We didn't go across to Rogers' City, but I would venture a guess that it's probably beautiful also. I'm pretty excited about the prospect of driving up that way in the Fall, I'm sure to fall in love with the area all over again. On our trip back, we stopped in gaylord-- long story-- but that place was so nice, DH and I found ourselves sitting at a Elias' Bros Big boy, sipping steaming hot soup from a cup, looking out over a beautiful snowy afternoon, and all I could think was "I wanna LIVE here!" It must be so nice to have a change of seasons like that. I know FL seems ideal to many people, and I guess I can kind of understand why some people would be attracted to the idea of living here, but I'm not one of them anymore. I'm starting a savings for a couple of snowmobiles too--For that day in the not too distant future when we are free to move way upstate! My hair will look like $hit, but at least I'll be having fun!!!
Michigan has been our dream residence for years. My wife is from there and we have talked about moving there for years. She has a real secure job with lots of benifits, and i love the security.
She is half way thru a bachlors degree. Told her that i would go to nursing school as it pays well and also has good benifits. I dont know much about rn programs. I know the schools there are better than nm.(wow it has just started to snow, i love it)
In writing this, iam weighing some pros and cons.
1st im not the sharpest saw in the shed. Which makes getting into school here easier than Mi.
2nd I could get an associates nursing degree while kathy finishes her education.
3rd How to transfer skills and knowledge from her to there?
4th money is not everything, we helping raising two grandchildren. and wipe thier hinnies is do able(recon i could do it for an adult) Then there is this vomit thing, uk! chain reaction!
Another thought comes to mind. Do some institutions help pay for ed? Assuming that i
have either taken training in short term 36 week class for example or gone for an associates.
