A career at rest tends to stay at rest. A career in motion tends to stay in motion. Or something like that. They are keeping me too busy to really consider any other options. There's so much work to do that thinking of leaving just violates my innate desire to see the job done to completion, which is quite a ways off. Yet I have come to the conclusion that I will never be able to earn enough money staying where I am so that I can get out of debt and save for the kids and retirement. Then again, I am on a pension which, along with Social Security, is pretty much the only retirement I have so far. That pension is worth quite a lot, and if I were to leave, I would have to make, and save, at least $20K more per year to break even. Dammit, it was supposed to turn out better than this. Maybe we'll get that big economic collapse after all, and it won't matter.
