An RV is Not a Bad Idea!

Instead of buying a house, Spurs thinks I should buy and RV.

He's right!

I've been in Yuma 3 months now and am already looking to leave. Hey, I've beat my record...the shortest time I've stayed in one place is 3 months.

Due to the upcoming acquisition, my contract to stay with the company for a year due to reimbursement for school and my relocations is null and void.

Anyone remember the big reason for me coming out here? My dad, stepmom and little sister live in Phoenix, only 3 short hours away. Well, dad got a great job offer from a great company in some small ass town of Kentucky. Has Harvey done his Facts of Kentucky yet??

Anyways, that leaves me 2000-3000 miles away from all of my family. It's been that way before...but I don't want it to be that way again.

So, I have posted my resume on Monster, Hot Jobs, and Career Builder. I'm submitting it for every job that looks semi-tolerable.

I'm looking at the Atlanta would be 6 hours from my dad and 5 hours from my mom. I think that's a nice central location. However, I have expanded my search into NC, SC, and TN. I've even considered Chicago if the job was good enough.

There is a chance of moving with my current company, but I want out of retail. I'm more of a babysitter than a manager. I feel like the damn policy nazi. Hiring in Yuma is a bitch (since I've let go of 2 people since I've been here and am working on my 3rd)... I'm bored. I don't know what I was thinking going back....yea, my stores are doing well....but I'm bored and unmotivated! And that's a bad place to be in Yuma! Yuma blows!

Yes, I may be a little bitter about Yuma because of telling the bipolic to fuck off, or it may be the snow birds, or the people that get mad at me because I do not speak Spanish, or the fact that there is nothing to do in Yuma except drink, or that the only guys here to date are Marines or don't speak English, or that I'm tired of living in a cave of a house and sharing a bathroom with what seems like 6 four year olds.

So I'm sure I could get a good deal on an RV as there are more RV lots here thanks to winter visitors than there are car lots!

Luckily, all my stuff is still in storage and should be semi-easy to load back into a moving truck. Except this time I'll be doing it on my own!

Poor baby, I feel for you.

Hope everything works out for you.

I'm thinking that the RV is a good idea... except for filling the damn thing up with fuel!

Yeah, Yuma is pretty much the bung-hole of the universe. Run away as fast as possible...but not to Atlanta...don't listen to Mo, she's evil.

And you could always just put a camper shell on a pick-up and call it home :-)

You could do a Blog Across America in your RV! Stop at different blogger's houses from coast to coast!

I spent an eternity in Yuma one night. I'm not kidding. When you said you were going to Yuma and you were excited, it took all I had to bite my tongue. Good God. It's awful there.

I'm so sorry. I was really really hoping it would not be for you.

Ooof! Sorry it's not working out for you, Sissy! Here's hoping your next locale will be a longer (and nicer) stay.

Oh, and before I forget... you've been tagged for a meme over at my place. See what happens when I start posting again? People make me do memes. I'm sharing the love.
