I am considering a move to another state and scared! Love to hear from others who have done it, things you wish you had known, surprises, regrets etc.
Currently, we have lived in a small town for 10+ years, I work part time and go to college full time online.
In the new area we will be living with a sibling, splitting rent - yes!! No more being the only adult in the house! Number one reason to move. Better climate, a very close second! I will be able to transfer to a college there almost immediately and obtain my degree in less time due to lighter requirements. Family court has already approved the move. All my family lives in the new area. I really want to get a fresh start where everyone does not know alllll about my divorce. It can be somewhat of a scandal in a small town, even several years later.
Hesitations. My current job is flexible, pays well, and I can either bring my children or schedule around their activities. In the new area this would not be the case and I think I would have to find work in a different area. My children go to a wonderful school now and schools in the new area are unsafe and private schools are outrageous. And last but not least, we would all miss our friends.
I keep telling myself if its awful we can always move back. I am worried that the school here would think badly of me if I pull my children out and then bring them back a few months later though.
