Job B has biggest potential (millions) but less likely to get to that level and honestly, I dont know that I want to lean in to the extent needed. Could probably mommytrack myself with a decent arrangement. Job A has pretty good opportunities for advancement, probably more likely than at Job B although less pay. Job C has some opportunities for advancement, and could elect to increase working hours at a comparable salary bump, but more significant advancement beyond that is more limited. [ Reply | More ]

They're boring in a lot of ways. Much better in terms of grass, trees, space, being able to see the stars at night, scenic drives, the ability to grocery shop for supplies that last more than a day, have multiple pets. I can go outside and lie down in the warm sun if I want, ten feet outside my door, without having to make plans to go to a park first. I do miss the food, the delivery options, the exhilarating pace, people watching, feeling plugged into the world. Suburbs is more isolating but also peaceful. If you are a quiet person it's nice.
