Well, all the visiting last month made me realize how badly I want to move back! I moved to Florida 7 years ago, to get away from an ex. My mom and my brother had moved to Florida, so I followed. I still have family in Illinois, and all my friends too.
My friend and her husband said I can live with them until I get on my feet. They are going to turn the basement into a little apartment for me and my son...there's a bathroom down there, so that's good.
I have never driven that far before, so I am nervous about that. I will have to rent a uhaul, and I guess drag it behind my car, lol. I have to move the dog and cat too...it's twenty hours total, but of course I can't drive twenty hours straight. I am worried about finding places to sleep that will allow a dog and a cat too.
When I moved to Florida, I left all my belongings behind, so I just flew. This time, I want to bring my stuff. I am leaving some of my things here in Florida with my mom. She says in case I change my mind!
I still live with my psycho boyfriend, who gave me a really hard time when I told him I wanted to leave. I made nice with him for the time being, but when I actually start moving my stuff, I think I will have to call the cops. He's not going to be pleasant, I know.
I originally planned to move next March, because then I will have the 3,000 from my income tax check. I only have 2000 right now, enough to get me there, but then I won't have any $. Everyone I know says they can get me a job, but who knows what will happen when I actually get there. Now they want me to move up in August, before my son starts another school year. I don't know yet, but I do know I am definitely going!
Then there's the snow, but I lived in it for 25 years, so I will get used to it again!
