Hey all! I'd forgotten about this thread, i'm glad someone brought it back to life.

Here's an update on me: I've moved my moving date back to March 09. Basically, looking at the economy and unemployment rates I thought it might not be a great idea to just quit my job and hope that my savings will tide me over until I find a new one. So I'm working part-time at the Marriott so I can transfer to one in NJ. I already talked to my manager and he said while they don't have a call center there I can always work in one of the hotels. Most likely, I'll go full-time once i move since job searching is primarily online these days. I have to be on the job six months before I can transfer and that would put me right smack in the middle of the holidays when the prices for everything goes up and i'm not too sure if I want to drive from FL to NJ in the snow.

I also have registered with a couple of temp agencies here that have offices there so when I move my test scores will already be on file and I can go straight to the interview process. I keep feeling like I'm stalling because this is the 3rd time I've moved back my dates, but my mom tells me to just slow down and relax. I think I'm an over planner.

I've got my place pretty much vacant. I went month-to-month on my lease (which costs me an extra $20 a month but it's worth it, otherwise I'd be stuck here until June). Most of my son's clothes will go to charity; I've been purging his closet every 3 months and getting rid of stuff that's too small. I donated all my books and the majority of my movies to the library. I hated to give them away but I never watch/read them and it would have just been too hard to move them.

I try to read the local paper online often and I'm making a weekend trip up there next month to check out a couple of apartment complexes, although when I first move I'll be staying with my son's grandmother.

Thanks, to everyone for the tips and encouragement, especially the one about the pediatrician. I asked the current one and she gave me an excellent recommendation, whom I visited when I was up there in April and the doctor's office gave me some good daycare referrals.

I'm also thinking of moving out of my current resident state. Had no ideas what to do but now at least I have a direction. Thanks for all the tips and they do help a lot.

Make lists of things to do. Get some organization into it and it goes smoother. Research before hand everything you can.

Best way?

Go to a top notch law, medical, or engineering school in your area and interview on campus with employers from that state.
