I think you answered your own question. It doesn't have to be your "permanent" home.

Enjoy your time in Texas and take in all the state has to offer that Chicago doesn't . If you are there for a few years, and still want to go home, then do so. I don't think Chicago is going anywhere. Some say it takes at least two years to feel like you are actually living in your new city, and not just visiting. Once your surroundings become more familiar you might feel differently. Making a decision about anywhere after only a few months is hasty. You won't ever regret giving it a fair chance, but leaving too soon...that might be a huge regret.

Moved from Atlanta to California. Missed Atlanta. Moved back. Spent 5 months. Missed California, and now we are back in California. That makes for 3 cross country moves in 2 years! We'll be in CA for a while.

When I go back to the place I left I get depressed. Depressed that I didn't leave earlier. I am relieved when I go home.

Hehe. You sound like us. Well, we did a giant triangle. At least you have all your bases covered by now.
