Anyone else going through this? What helps you? Obviously if we were saving big chunks of money every month to help or had job leads that would certainly bolster our spirits about things, but we're still a ways off from that.

Any and all comments appreciated

P.S. Just for the record, I do love and appreciate and value my family, friends here, etc., but I've never been the most patient person out there...
I understand 1005 where you are coming from as I am going through it now! I too have family and friends in the location I am in. Although I love my family, I would like to create my own life with my son in another location. My plan is to relocate in another 18-24 months also. I guess what is "helping" me cope for now is my job. I travel 70% of the year to various locations.....thats the cool part. the nagative is I am always leaving my child behind because of the demands of the company and when I return, I am back to the place I cant stand. I love that my family is here, but thats it; I do not like the location that I'm in. anyway, I am too wiggling in my pants to get out of this place and am not the most patient person either. I just continue to look forward to the day my son and I can relocate because I KNOW it will happen. Just continue to enjoy your family while you are looking towards your dream location

Love this thread. I have a question for anyone who has experience with this. Where I want to move, I have know support system: No family, No friends. I moved away for 3 years at a young age and enjoyed my life. I got pregnant which is what sent me back to may family and hometown for support. Now my child is 4 years old and I am sooooo ready to move out of state again, but worried because I have a child and know no one in the location I dream to move. Any advice on this situation? has anyone moved with kids with no support? thanks.

I'm sitting here in Fl trying to figure out if I am moving back to MA once and for all, or if I am going to move more north in FL. It's either MA in September or October, or FL in the next month or 2... Decisions decesions. I just do not like where i am in the state anymore. I do have a job opportunity in both place(MA or FL).... but.....??????????

hmm, I have moved 2 x with no support and kids on my own too. It's totally viable but depends on what type of person you are. I'm kinda one of those stalwart independent types, so I do ok. I do want to move back to the beach tho and be closer to my family this time though, as it would be nice to be able to see them a few times a year. More so for the beach though, I love love love the beach and am dying out here in landlocked Colorado -- the reservoir really doesn't do it for me. Next time, I'm never leaving the water again!!

We're in the same boat.
We want to move over the summer (less school disruption). Have to give a month's notice to LL or lose a month's rent.
Meanwhile, nothing panned out in MA, don't know if we really want to go there anyhow (sort of sick of New England in general by now). We were looking into NJ but it seems expensive, then you have bad crime....so....and there is that little job problem..

So it's like a weight that keeps coming down...it permeated all our days with stress.
