I recently moved from Minnesota to Las Vegas. So far I am really enjoying it here. I haven't been here through the summer yet, and everyone keeps telling me it is going to be terrible. My reply is, "have you been through a winter in Minnesota?" I figure its' gotta be better than that.

I talked to my Mom back in MN today. I was sitting on the deck in shorts and t-shirt enjoying 90 degrees and sun, while Mom told me it was 49 and pouring rain there. I think I'll take Vegas!

I want to live somewhere warm and not too hummid. Plus it would have to be pretty with nice people. I have fibro and winter kills me. Would also like more daylight being 3rd shift I dont get nearly enough of that.

I might consider San Francisco. That was my first choice many years ago. I actually wrote to a hospital the day before the big earthquake they had in about 1990(?).

But I'm o.k. with the Tampa Bay area, the weather, I live in a nice quite, low-crime neighborhood, downtown St. Petersburg is thriving. Nice beaches.

The pay is low, but I'm making $14.00 more an hour than 10 years ago, so I can't complain.

San Francisco!!!! I fell in love with that city when we went on our honeymoon, and I am just going nuts because I don't get to go back until after graduation!

I've heard wonderful things about Seattle, Atlanta and Tuscon as well.

Ah...now I have to go look at my honeymoon pics again! lol

I would say either California preferably South California or even Central California or Houston, Texas. I really want to move but I am too scared to move away in a strange place with my 5 year old daughter without knowing someone.

I'm with you petiteflower, that sounds fun! Some place warm.

I would also like to work in an ED in Hawaii, I've only been once, but I loved it! It was so beautiful! Any ED nurses out there from Hawaii? Do you love it or no?

I would go back to Vermont I think. But I think I would leave for the winter and go to Texas. I think it would be neat to work in Texas.

I'm moving home to sunny Miami, Fl right after graduation. In fact I told my wife that I wanted 2 plane tickets for a graduation gift!! Oregon is nice, but it's not home (and too gray and rainy).

To do it all over again, I would still want to come to Mississippi. It was never where I had planned to go, but have loved every minute of it. As to where I would like to go, somewhere closer to Canada. I miss home, but still don't think I would move back there. I love working in the USA. :)
