The winters in Missouri seem to be getting shorter. We had one snow that covered the ground and it only lasted two days. We have had an outstanding spring!! Beautiful 65 to 75 degree days!

Can I ask where are you in Tennessee? Why are needing to move in 43 days? My initial thought would be Texas, but not necesarilly in the big cities of Texas, depending on what you are looking for. Oklahoma would be another good choice, OKC seems to be coming on, and I believe their unemployment rate is quite low, lower than Texas.

Texas being cheap is great, but do they have good schools?

Is Kansas City pricey to live in? I checked out the data, but that's from 2009, so wondering if any major changes occurred.
Texas can use your skills and has some great schools in either Dallas or Houston. The cost of living is reasonable with no state income taxes, when you pick a city where you can work, the Texas city site on CD can help yu with good schools which are all over the metroplex which is huge. Come on down! You and the little one will be welcome in Texas

It's more important to choose a place where your whole family can enjoy domestic harmony and well-being, and just let that rub off on your kids. With that advantage, they'll do fine in any school.
Yeah, true. Thanks, can you check out other things in the cities I choose, like crime rate, etc etc?

If so, you might want to look at those options and decide from there (that is if you like the company you are with). Congrats on your upcoming move. (hope it is a good thing). New adventure. Good luck.
Everything important ends a week before, so we just decided that would be a great day to move! I work at home, so it won't be a problem.

So far, I'm thinking Texas, Missouri, but I need a third option. Any ideas? I don't want to go to a factory city like Baton Rouge, sorry. Any information about these states would be nice too, thanks. I've been doing a bit of research myself.
