In a few hours I will be flying down to Long Beach so I can start my new job tommorrow. No jobs around the Bay Area so this is as close (~300 miles) as I can get. Don't really want to move so I will be looking for a room/studio for week (Monday to Thursday or Friday) after the relocating hotel runs out. Not crazy about this- being away from the wife and dogs and our home but that's life. There is also a chance that something might open up here so I really don't want to do anything quick that I will live to regret but I was wondering if anyone else is doing the same thing? Once it gets into a routine I know it will be quicker; but it still seems like it will get old quick. I have a year to get relocating costs so at least I can see what happens.
