"There's a lot more advantage for me being home for my kid(s) than there is in my working until 9pm at night."
Amen to that!

Although in San Jose, "Buy a 5 BR/3BA home in a more rural area that is a bit farther away from work;" could mean anything from 15 to 75 extra minutes a day in the car (each way), as I'm sure you're aware. I took a pay cut when I transferred to a job in my own town, but it was like suddenly having a 26 hour day! "Wow, I have 2 extra hours!! Whatever shall I do with myself?" ;-)

Plus, the pay cut is now gone since I'm in outside sales. ;-)

Kasha<--who counts herself lucky to not need to sleep away those extra 2 hours a day, LOL!
