I have my second job interview for a position at the headquarters of my company tomorrow. I'm terrified it will go well and I'll have to honstly think about moving...to Michigan.

When I applied for the job, I wasn't even sure I would get an interview. The position seems pretty tailor-made for my experience, but I've never been really good at touting my own accomplishments. I had my first interview with the HR Department in the middle of the vacation last week. It threw the relaxtion vibe off a bit, but it appears I did well enough, I've gotten to the second interview and all.

I've spend the last few days discussing Michigan with Shelley, who took a position there a few years ago, moved while 5 months pregnant with her first child, really liked it, but ended up moving back to San Diego because her husband was miserable. No problems in that area. Frinklin is thrilled at the prospect of moving someplace it snows. He's from the Pacific Northwest--he likes the cold.

I've never lived anywhere other than Southen California. I'm not great driving in the rain, let alone the snow. The thought of ICE on ROADS is frightening beyond belief to me. I keep telling myself that plenty of people deal with these things every day and are just fine. People already live in Michigan, many of them really like it.

And then there's the moving in general. With dogs. And cats. And birds. We gave the turtle to a friend of my sister almost a year ago. But still--that's a lot of pets to move. Do they allow pit-bull mixes in apartments in Michigan? Can we afford to rent a house? What area should be even begin to look in? This seems so complicated at the moment. And right before the holidays?

Can I do this? Am I really grown up enough?
