Hey, everyone! About two months ago, I accepted my first teaching position. I am loving everyone that I have met so far and my school, P, etc. The issue is that my job is an hour away. My hubby and I are living in an apartment right now. I went ahead and renewed our lease until May 2015 (which I hope wasn't a mistake due to the drive to work). I just didn't want to deal with moving during my first year of teaching, but now I am going to be stuck with the long drive. It was kind of lose/lose in that aspect. Anyway, the district I was hired in is a very rural district. My hubby is a hunter and I am really into riding horses, so it's great in that aspect. We could buy a little home with some land for my horses and some woods for him. The problem is, we don't (and won't be) making a ton of money. When I look for homes in our price range with a little bit of land (maybe 5 acres), they all just seem so cold and empty with nothing around. :mellow: If we were to purchase a home where we are currently living that had some land, I think I'd love it! But the prospect of being an hour away from our families, in a town where we know no one, all alone on a piece of land, kind of scares me. So now I'm torn. Do we try and stay in our current city, and I continue driving an hour to work? Or do we move to my work city, where we are further from our families, etc.? I should add that hubby wants to move to my work city. He loves it out there. I'm the one with cold feet. Those of you who have moved for a job....how has it been on you?
