Massachusetts & Minnesota

As we try to chart out our future, Chris and I are struggling with a big dilemma: Should we move back to Minnesota in the summer of 2009? Over the past few months, we've been leaning towards moving back this coming summer. Chris would transfer law schools to William Mitchell, I could return to work for Boston Scientific in Minnesota (hopefully) and we could buy a house(for a steal) in the Minneapolis area. The benefits of this plan would be that Chris could make legal contacts in the state in which he will be practicing long-term, we could buy a house instead of renting and we would be near family.

However, lately we've been having a change in attitude. As the time nears for us to seriously consider the move, both of us are re-considering staying out here until Chris graduates from New England Law in 2011 (which is a better ranked school than William Mitchell). At that point, we would definitely move back to Minnesota. For right now, I'm happy in my job and Chris is continuing to gain great finance experience here in Boston and could most likely get a solid legal job here during his last year of school. In addition, the extra two years would enable us to continue to take advantage of the many weekends trip options within New England and Canada.

So that's where we stand now. I think Chris will put in a transfer application to William Mitchell just to see what happens. We'll make the final decision this spring!

Come home!!! We miss you guys! Plus you have a new baby niece that you need to set a bad example for and scar for life. How are you going to do that all the way out in Boston?

That's a tough one! I'm praying for wisdom for you guys. Personally, I like either. On the hand, I could come out and visit the northeast again, on the other, I'd definitely see you more often if you were in MN.
