It's tempting UK and of course if I made the move she would be sure to follow , I think. I keep hearing "Our kids need stability and not bounce from school to school". I say "Look at military kids, they move around all the time and it don't hurt them".

In any event , maybe another year of 98 degree weather will do the trick.

Not to be confused with OSU.....

... I have a lot of inlaws and several friends in OH (actually have more friends in OH than I do in MI... hmm) and I absolutely loved living in the Cleveland area. The PEOPLE of OH are pretty awesome. Especially when UofM gets around to beating OSU at something and I have bragging rights.

It's great to see Michigan finally rebounding after a very dark period. I'm from SW Michigan by the way, used to post here all the time. I graduated from Western in 2009 and wanted so bad to stay in MI, but I was forced to move to find a job. I'm actually thinking about moving back to Niles within the next few years. Minnesota is an awesome state and I love it here, but it's just not home, if you know what I'm saying. Plus, it would be awesome to help, in some small way, bring Michiana and Michigan as a whole back.

Also, M Go Blue!!! It looks like OSU is gonna face some NCAA violations in the very near future . . .

I'm right there with you when it comes to homesickness. I've actually taken it a step further and applied for some of those jobs. Since January I've had 5 phone interviews & 3 offers for face-to-face interviews in Cleveland and Columbus, even though the timing for moving isn't right for me either. But it's such a rush to have an interview in Ohio knowing it could actually result in a job offer. I just bought a house here last December but sometimes I feel like just putting a sign in the yard, packing up & moving back.

I tell you eveytime I go down to Kentucky for a cabin rental
the first few days up to about 5 I am fine
but then I am ready to pack up and cant wait to get home.

Home is Home-
funny how we dont realize the values we have in our communities

never really been into nc except around the smoky mnts
but I would imagine the culture of the midwest and the south
would clash
two diff mindsets in two diff places

Yes and no ... Honestly, the culture of MI is more in line with the "true" culture of NC with the exception of work ethics. The problem is .. NC is losing its true culture because it has become a transplant state. Last year it was announced that Charlotte, NC was 51% transplant to 49% native. Majority of the transplants have come from NJ, NY, MA, CT, etc. For me, the clash of culture is actually more with the different transplants and the mentality of the Northeastern region of the US.

As for location, I miss the Lakes.
