So here's the thing: I've been saying for...10 years? now that I want to move to North Carolina. I tried to convince Jeremy to just do it out of law school. That would have been the thing to do. We didn't have a kid, we didn't have a ton of debt (aside from student loans), we weren't tied to any jobs. We should have figured it out then. But we didn't.

Only, I still want to do it. Of course, now it has to be carefully planned. Jeremy has to find a job. I have to find a job. We have to think about schools for Samuel. We have to think about how to get all our stuff there. We have to consider our debt load. You know, be a grown up. I hate being a grown up.

Jeremy found a job posting (finally!) for the area we like (Asheville) and now the dreamer in me is all excited. It's stupid. It's just a job posting. He applied last night, but seriously...it's just a job posting. But that's me--I grab on to something and I can't let go. Fortunately, over the years I've learned how to not be disappointed by these wild dreams and hopes. Thank god, because dude? I'm looking at houses all because of a freaking job posting. How childish am I?

But hey, a dreamer's got to dream. And as long as I'm flying high and dreaming, maybe I should do something constructive about this desire of mine. Like, find a job option. See, maybe if I found a steady, reliable job that offered a reasonable wage, we could think about following that with or without a job for Jeremy. Crazy, right? *sigh*

So...I need a way to find equine professional jobs in the Asheville, NC area. It's the industry I have the most experience in and the most earning potential in. I know that doesn't equate to a great deal of income, but it's something. Thing is, where do I look? I feel like finding the elusive equine professional job is not easy because they aren't exactly well advertised online or nationwide. Perhaps I do not know about a certain network? Anyone have suggestions?

These kinds of views. These are my goals. I love the mountains, the pine trees, the lifestyle. Give me this to call home!

There is nothing wrong with dreaming. You should dream, and dream big, than set your goals of how you're going to get there and every day take a little piece of it and do it! You'll get there if it's something you want and are willing to work at, anything is possible. :) Of course I say that when I fully well know I will likely never win that $400 million Powerball lottery. ;)

hehe. Yes, winning the lottery is part of our plan too! ;)

Our mountains are just as nice and we don't have humidity. :)

If I were you I would check Chronicle of the Horse forums, and the place people always talk about for horsey jobs is yardandgroom.com

My best friend lives in Asheville, and I love Asheville. So, my heart is in Asheville and the surrounding area. :) If I'm going to dream, right?

I just found yardandgroom a bit ago and I'm going through their site now. Found an interesting possibility that I'll have to discuss with DH tonight. I wonder how some of these positions would feel about getting the whole family when they get me...

Asheville is lovely, though (as I'm sure you know) it is an island of hippie-liberals in the middle of a deep red area. My mom went to high school near Boone, so we've spent some time down there. It's gorgeous, but I don't think I could live in NC.

But my personal feelings aside, I agree that dreams are wonderful things to have -- just don't let them get in the way of enjoying the here and now.
