OK, finally got some response from some of the jobs I applied for.  One organization in Maine wants to meet with me for one of two positions.  I want one but may not quite be qualified for it.  I have some stuff going for me, however.  I may need to take the other with eyes on the one if I don't get the one.  Looks like I'm going to Maine to check it out.
DH balked.  He is resistant, wants me to wait until November to check it out, but this would be a good move.  He's scared.  I'd be moving there with Matthew for a few months to check out how I like it, then get the summer off, come home and we'd talk about moving there for good.   First position's an associate director of an inpatient facility.  The other's a school psychologist position, so I would have school hours.  It's more money, I may be able to get my loans paid off over and above. 
I need to go there and talk about it some more with them.
Real estate is phenomenal there, from what I was told. 
Looks like the mustang would be really really dumb to hang on to, though.
Oy!  DH!  He's wimping out on me!

Did you happen to catch the news that there was a 4.7 earthquake last week in Maine? I don't see how real estate in Maine could be more costly than NY, MA, or CT.

I've experienced an earthquake and wouldn't want to live where they occur. Maine? Who thought they would have an earthquake.

Let us know what you find out. It may be as interesting a place as Oak Ridge is.

Sounds like an interesting opportunity. Keep us posted.

I love New England. I have only been in Maine on drive throughs, but have read so much about it. It sounds like people there are pretty neat and kind of live in their own culture. Beautiful scenery. You didn't say whether it was near the coast or not, that should interest DH more if it was, but don't expect the water to ever be anywhere near warm. You are familiar with coastal water in the Cape and I would venture a guess it is a heck of a lot warmer than Maine. LOL. But like I told my husband when he was offered an interview in TX and we lived in OH, go for it and see all you can. You don't have to take the job even if it is offered but you get a trip to check it out for free. Hugs, MK

The Maine job sounds fantastic. Maybe lots of pressure in that position but I know that you could handle it. Now, if it was your dh that was offered a job in another state, would he hesitate to take the interview and would you balk at moving?????? Go for it!!!!

Hi.  I live in Maine and we didn't have an earthquake.  Good gracious. 
It's a wonderful place to live.  "Vacationland", after all.
Hope you join us.
Fall is unbelieveable!
Good luck.
