I just accepted the LTS job at my old district. The P was very happy and said he is sure he can work it out so I can get a permanent position eventually. I feel really good about it. This district is a good fit for me, I have friends there, and it just feels right, even though I am only a LTS for now. And a bonus--if do get hired on permanently, the pay is 5k more than the other job I was considering, and 9k more when I reach top step in a few years. So money lost by LTSing would be made up. My DH made me think about that part, but honestly, I am just happy to be going back to where I was happy once before! Thanks to all who listened and gave advice to me!
