Default Life changing decision!

Well it has happened, Since my wifes battle last year with breast cancer.We decided that it was time to take control of our future, I have been looking for employment in mid to south Florida, since my daughter and grandson moved down to Northport two years ago, Well I have been offered a position
as Director of Construction/renovation for Avante Healthcare, a small 20 facility chain based out of Hollywood Fla. This position is similar to what I do for HCR-Manor Care, but now I ahve 70+ facilities covering 4 states, I have been averaging 60,000 miles a year on my personel car out 3-4 days a week, The new position has 20 facilities in 3 states, 11 are in Florida, Now the fun begins, I will accecpt the position today, give Manor care a 30 day notice on Monday, and now I have to sell a 4 bedroom home on an acre and a half in Middleburg HTS, AND find housing in and around FT Lauderdale, Hollywood,
move the family and two Huskies ! wish me luck!! Once we get settled, I will invite all who want to get away from our wounderful Cleveland winters to come on down for a visit.. give me a year and we will have another Boat!!
Dave!!

Moving sells work well, people seem to come out and spend more money at them.
