My wife is one of the leading experts in her field, and she has been recognized by three different national associations. When we first married, she was working on a special project in Sarasota, FL. I stayed home with the kids, and she worked 12 or 14 hour days. When the project ended, my wife was tired and ready for a break. Eventually, my wife stopped working in Sarasota and took a job teaching at the Tampa Bay College. For a while, we were driving 30 or 40 minutes to work each day. My wife and I couldn’t afford to live in Tampa Bay, so we were commuting to work each morning. We still had two small children in daycare, and our mornings kept getting longer and longer. Eventually, we decided to sell the house and move to Tampa Bay. We bought a nice condo, and the place has a lot of great amenities. We have a pool with two slides, a diving board, and lap lanes. The community board pays an instructor to give swim lessons every day during the summer. We even have a ball field. The whole place is amazing, and my wife and I rarely spend more than 10 minutes in the car. The kids really enjoy spending time with the other neighborhood kids. When we were living in Sarasota, we didn’t have many neighbors. Now the kids spend all afternoon with their friends, and they rarely sit in the bedroom with the video games. I can’t believe that things are so nice, and I think we should have moved a long time ago. I’m really enjoying the extra time with my wife, too.
