As it is now, my husband is licensed in the state of Utah and Colorado. It has been on our list to get a Texas license as well. Most of my immediate family lives there and my husband never feels comfortable adjusting anyone because he isn't licensed there! Yeah, he's a NERD!! The funny irony is, there are a loot of jobs for Associate doctors to be found at any given moment in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex! The other irony is my family alone has dropped more money on chiropractic care than my husbands entire family and extended family combined in the years he has been a chiropractor. Combine this and the fact Texas has no income tax and plenty of people to go around and you have a recipe for a lifestyle that is hard not to seriously consider!
We would have instant friends and family and I know I could sell the kids on it if I took them down for a visit. On the other hand, man oh man do I love Murray (Utah). I love our life here but I do miss my husband. I feel like a single parent, but it always feels this way for stay at home mom's! The men pull in 8-10 hour shifts no matter their profession! I was lucky to be is partner right after school and soak up hours by his side in the chiropractic trenches! It was nice to set our own hours and such but there was a huge price we paid for that called Destitution!!
Perhaps we can put up with the tornados and hail, nasty drinking water and heat for a more comfortable lifestyle and friends! Who knows, it may be the best move we ever make!
