I am about 2.5 hours south of you. Not really close enough to have a weekly playdate but perhaps if we ever have a southern Mothering meetup it would be close enough.<br><br>
Georgia is a big state. IF you are moving from Manhatten, you are going to be in for CULTURE SHOCK!!! OMG!!! My dh is from western Jersey and I thought he was goign to either deck someone or head for the hills. But you get used to it and find that you love it.<br><br>
It is a totally different world in South Georgia.
that's NOT what i wanted to hear! i'm rather in denial about the culture shock. I went to college for four years in a very small town, so i hope that helps prepare me. although, i'm starting to learn what i'm going to get is different from what i expect - i was on the phone with a woman talking in her deep southern accent, and i could NOT get a word in edgewise - and here i thought everything would be slower paced down there. i guess not for chatting!
I went to Georgia Southern University in Statesboro. It is a wonderful town, very college though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I also lived in Savannah too, that's an hour drive. There will also be some military up that way (not a bad thing at all--dh is former army---was a Ranger in Savannah) because Ft. Stewart (Hinesville) is 45min away and Hunter Army Airfield (Savannah) is 1hr away. We are moving back to GA soon but will be up the Athens, GA area (about 3-4hrs from Statesboro--I think). So, just wanted to let you know that I loved living there but it was way before the time I started having children! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> Good luck in your search for a home!
