We have been in our current home almost 5 years. It's over 100 years old and we have fixed it up. I know it is not our forever home.
DH will get a new job but we have no idea when it will be. It could be a year or 10 years- same company. His current job is amazing but we have to live in the area where we are living. With the new jobs (there are two channels to take) we could live anywhere as long as there is an airport.
The long term dream is to live in central Oregon. Really awesome climate, endless outdoor activities, the city we love has great schools and a walkable downtown. If he were to get a new job we could move there.
In the meantime a house just came on the market in a neighboring town- it's in the city I want to live in and I drive DD 30 min round trip to daycare there. Plus the house is about 25% less than what we could sell our house for. (ETA this only happens 1x a year)
It's so tough, I don't want to be hanging onto a what if. But I don't want to make a move and then be anxious to move to the big dream if DHs job pops loose. I would be just as happy raising my family in either place but DH prefers the high desert. Thoughts?
