Tell your present employer you were offered this opportunity and see if they will match, or at least give you a raise. Then be even happier.

sounds like youve already answered your question. cant beat being happy at work. id love to have a 10 minute commute to work. and having good friends at work makes it less..work-like.

sometimes more money isnt always enough...

There's a shortage of qualified people in the job market now.
I would casually mention the offer at your present work place and see if they value you enough to make you happy and keep you there.
Saying "match it or I am gone" in not the right approach.
Good luck!

i just decided to stay where i am , i work 60 hours in the 1st week but only 24 in the 2nd week , lots of time off with the kids , also get to take the two days from the 2nd week off once in a while resulting in 7 days off in a row , a guy can turn two weeks of vacation into 5 to six weeks off .

my present employer knows of my opurtunity , and when its time for my review they will pay for it !
