It looks fairly certain I will be accepting a job in Baltimore. This is mostly good news!
Thanks to everyone who gave me advice on Maryland. It does irritate me that CC in MD will be difficult, if possible at all, but the bottom line is providing for me and my wife.
We ARE excited to be near the coast again, AND employed.
Now I just have to figure out how to afford to get there, as we are B-R-O-K-E again from BEING unemployed, and no relocation is provided.
Fingers crossed I get it done.
