if you move into a "full" house, you will need to downsize household goods... furniture, kitchen, beds, etc. then you move out, you will need to buy all that again. don't do it. combine that with a longer commute for your husband, and much higher cost of organic groceries in the city, and it is a very costly experiment.

 

and IMHO, baltimore city schools are scary.

 

can you take the kids to the Carribean for the summer, and let dh stay with his Mom? i am not sure what that plane ticket would cost.

I would not do that, if it's going to stress you out and make life difficult   Home should be a save haven, not a place of more stress that you try to get away from.

 

If you are going to move, I would work on finding a cheaper apt. closer to his work (that would save a ton of money on gas as well).

I wish I could go home this summer but for the past 2 summers I have been home for about 6 weeks with the kids and this summer we are going to his island for 10 days along with his mom, his brother and family and his aunt and her family, we haven't been there for 3 years.

 

And Baltimore City school does scare me also. I am not a public school person as I never been to one(and no we wasn't that privilage like that, it was a small Christian school that was just about 250 a month) but I am thinking of putting him in one if it is in a decent area..like maybe in Montgomery, Fairfax or Loundon County.
