We'll be moving to TN with DH's new job. I'm really starting from scratch and it's overwhelming.
After a 4 day weekend visit, we were definitely leaning toward Cleveland over Chattanooga. (Much shorter commute for DH, more rural living, etc.), but from what I am seeing online only stuff to do/groups/etc. in Chattanooga? I don't want to isolate us (just have one DS 3/yo) but I don't want to have to drive 45 min every time we want to do something....we know no one in TN. Seriously, not a soul. I realize it might take a little bit to get settled, but I at least would like to have some resources to help me get a jump start, not to mention I like the idea of supporting my local community (say, Cleveland) if possible (for holistic (or at least non judgmental) pediatrician, midwife, potentially homeschooling (so co-op/meet up group), potentially school, etc.)
I'm starting to think maybe this move was a bad idea?! Help! DH and I have been psyched for a move for a few years and finally here it is (!!), but we're both having second (and third and fourth) thoughts. Anything you could offer about Cleveland, TN or communities NE of Chattanooga to put my mind at ease would be great. (Just looking at the map again -- should we be considering Charleston or even somewhere else? Job is in Cleveland.) Thanks!
