I know we all want to vacation there. We just did. But if the opportunity presented itself, would you want to live there? That was the decision Heath and I faced yesterday.
At the beginning of the week, Heath had applied online for a job in Hawaii, and the next day, he got a call from the company. They set up a phone interview for the following day and were anxious to talk to Heath about his work experience.
So this made us think...wow. Do we really want to move to Hawaii. We weren't sure. It is really expensive to live there (very comparable to the surrounding cities here in California) and we have always said that we want to move to a place where a good paycheck really means a good paycheck. Cost of living is important to us. But it's Hawaii for goodness sake!
Anyway, the question was answered for us when the interviewer offered Heath a salary that would be great for a single man living there, but not for a family of six. So we declined and are happy that it wasn't a tempting offer. We think we'd like to visit there again, but not live. Besides, my hair would be wacky frizzy everyday. I just don't think I can take that kind of pressure.
