We LOVED the people in Colorado. See my reply under "people." The weather was gorgeous, good to see real snow. But, the beauty of the mountains and the niceness of the people is what I loved best. We live in in a suburb down from Miami, FL and are not happy with the people's attitude. It's a mini- NYC with suntanned people.

Well, you know if you think the people there are not nice, you may think the same of us Coloradans if you live here. I strongly feel that people tend to be about the same everywhere, with a some cultural differences thrown in.

I wholeheartedly agree with this!

Thanks for this info. Too bad more districts don't do this. My uncle worked as a school psychologist in Aurora schools for many years. He is now retired, and his grandkids attend Aurora schools. The older kids warned me to stay away from Aurora schools because "they suck!" (they don't tend to hold back much ) The area has declined somewhat, but sometimes the lower-socioeconomic areas have parents who are actually appreciative of what the teachers do, instead of breathing down their necks constantly, making demands on behalf of their "little angels."

Hi all! I'm not trying to turn this thread into my personal blog, but I can't help but be excited about what has transpired recently. No, my husband still does not have a job in Denver--BUT--one interview went extremely well. The pay is quite low, but they are negotiating and will get back to my husband with another offer. Also, there is another company that is interested, and if this one works out, the pay is good and he would be able to work from home anywhere in the nation. I'm praying, keeping my fingers crossed--whatever may work! Just felt like sharing.

Nicely done. We wish that your husband finds the job he wants, and you get to move into the home you want
