Now Decide MY Fate, Part I

Postby freckleface » Tue Dec 12, 2006 9:00 pm

As I have mentioned before, for those of you who pay attention, my "original plan," as I call it (made almost 6 years ago) was to move away from the coast, get some more education and a career going besides waitressing, all so I could move back to the Oregon coast and live happily ever after.

Well, I moved away, I moved around, I got the education, and although I am now closer to the coast than I was last year, the next move is a deciding factor.

The husband wants to move to Washington, specifically the Olympia area. We have good friends there, and it is in-between surf and snow. However, I am still interested in the "original plan," while he is, even now, applying for jobs in Oly.

I love Oregon and the coast, he loves Washington and wants to be able to snowboard during the winters.

I know some of you OSPer's don't even live in Oregon...(if I moved away, I probably wouldn't post here anymore). But...since you do post, what do you think? What about you folks who do live on the OR coast?

HOW CAN I RESOLVE THIS ISSUE? [/i]

Always listen to your husband...

That's what I tell my wife...

Not that she listens.

You left out one option:

Ditch your husband and shack up with Wilbur for about 3 1/2 weeks until you realize how good you actually had it with your man. And besides, just how much man-crying can you take anyway right? Move back in with your man, even though you know you will miss the sex for the rest of your life. And then relocate to Boise and enter therapy.

I would move to Olympia. It rains a hell of a lot more than here.

which do you love more.... i have over all always been unimpressed with the snowboarding in OR but the surf is supposedly better than WA..... where as the snow is king in WA so let that be your first guide...

Since you chose to get married, you deserve your fate.

If you take a husband, he is the man, he is the dominant masculine in the relationship so you really have no choice but to move, if that is what he really wants. You come on here professing your indecision, when really you have no say.

You made the choice when you got married so stop bitching and do what your told.

Ahh this all sounds to familiar to me, except my wife's not so keen on the Oregon coast and her compromise is moving back to Northern California. Not sure we will ever be able to afford that, but you never know?

I think it's the other way around though, Washington is full of hicks. Regardless they seem more conservative up there. Don't know there's sometinhing about Oregon and it's coastline and I always wondered why the Seattleites came down to the North Coast to buy their beach houses in Manzanita. Dot commies!

There's truly something to living on the ocean and hearing that fog horn blow when you wake every morning. Not to mention the difference in the overall energy, the constant ebb and flow of water and air. Living inland I often feel closterfobic, not being able to look out to the ocean and see nothing as far as the eye can see, but water. Just having access to that on a daily basis alone it's worth it.

So I would say go costal. Consider the North Coast? Really it's only 2 1/2 - 3 hours from Hood and an hour from P-Town if you want an overabundance of culture and excentricness. Problem is the cost of real estate being more expensive than Portland, but don't let that stop you. Have patience and in time you'll get in. Your advantage, being a teacher, I think, is you could find a job pretty easily as you have already figured out. Otherwise there's always the little towns on the west side in Washington County that are within an hour from surf and a couple from snow?

Now if Washington is your husbands dream, then consider Port Angles. One of the locals that ranks top on my list for relocation. Mountains out the back ocean out the front and then there's the whole rain shadow thing. Humm? Whatever you decide do, do what will make you both happy and remember the grass always looks greener on the other side. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't, sometimes it's a little bit of both, which is how I feel about moving to Portland from a very surf rich area. Sometimes I think we shoulda stuck it out because in reality happiness goes allot farther than home ownership. Plus I was practicly a local and now I'm just a city fuk, Ha. That's my take. Buenos Suerte.

We have thought about Port Angeles, actually. Funny you would mention that, Dub.

And, Betty! Wow! I remember now that you have a little issue with marriage.

I get my way, plenty, believe me. My husband knows he has a good thing goin', and doesn't want to f it up.

And Pete,--"servitude?" What are you proposing? Besides, we are NOT cheap! (Not that you couldn't afford us).

i like this conversation. my wife pretends to be in charge and i like to let her think she is. it works great that way until real things need to be taken care of
