To move or not to move...

As some of you know my bosses have asked me to move with them to Florida for the winter. And while that idea is immensely appealing... there is a catch. If I go I'd have to share a room with "M" (the 15 year old that I nanny/tutor/drive around). And while overall she's a good kid (if slightly spoiled), she is still a teenager. And I highly value my privacy.

We talked about options today... she really, really, really wants me to come with them for the 5 months they will be there... some of the options we came up with included putting up some sort of dividing wall, me coming after christmas, and me flying back and forth a couple times around her school schedule. All which could potentially work.

So I am asking for you opinion.. Go or stay? Share a room or fly back and forth?

Please keep in mind that until I get to talk to the Parents, this is strictly a theoretical discussion.

Thanks for your input!

  1. Jenn, I think you should go. I'm partially biased because I love travelling and think everyone should do it when they can. The idea of a divider is good. Do you think you'd always be in the room at the same time? If you are both in your rooms a lot now, you might be there and be at each other. Flying back and forth...I don't really think it's a fantastic idea. Airports get really annoying when you use them a lot (are you able to fly into the airport here?). My experience anyway. You might want to come home for Christmas, but going back and forth a few times might get a bit much. I think it's always a good idea to skip winter and go to warmer weather!! lol
