I find myself in a tricky place with my living situation. I am looking for some perspective from others to help me see it better as I try to figure this out.
I live in a really nice clean beautiful house where I have been for many years. I own it. the challenge of it is that it is very isolated. I am 25 minutes to a town I don't feel connected with (but used to for yrs so it used to be the town I hung out in) and 40 minutes-45 from a town I really feel inspired and connected in. Living here I see no one but ds and dh. IT is very out of anyone's way. So we moved for a while to the town I like, the one 40 minutes from here. IT is also closer to dh's job- the other town, I mean. And we had a great time living there. We had to leave the nice place here we were living. And we just could not find a decent place to live in the town after we moved out of the first one. And we have a one yr old baby so it is all about him. So we moved back to the beautiful but isolated house!
so my main issue is that I hate driving with ds. He actually does fine, but I hate the lifestyle of having him in the car a lot- and if we stay here then I have to drive a lot to see people. When we were living in the other town we lived close to other people, and it was so fun for ds. When he would get fussy I would just take him out for a walk and we would talk to people and see things going on. It was so much easier to parent him that way. At this house, it is just him and me all day while dh works. Or a lot of driving- and I would only really want to hang out in the other town!
So we can rent this house out and rent a house in the town we want to be in right now. But we really can't find anything decent- it is a small town so we have combed through what is out there.
so if we do manage to find a place, it will likely be a lot less nice than this house, and the beautiful grounds it is on.
so- wwyd? find a house or apartment in the area with people where I want to be raising ds, but have it be quite less nice and maybe even kind of rundown or grubby,,,,, or stay in a lonely far away beautiful clean place with a baby alone all day?!
