Why would you move back the place you left? You left it once before.
I work for Disney seasonally. I miss the MA/NH area every day. I grew up in NY city and lived in MD during college. When I met my husband I moved to MA. We both loved it but we wanted to give Florida and working for Disney a try. Now that we see MA/NH was far superior we want to move back. We still think Florida is a great vacation place (and we will be back on vacation.) We do not think it is a good place to work or live year round.

We moved to St.Pete/Clearwater in July of 2007 with some ?friends? And stayed all of about 30 days... Now take it.. We came and had grown up in San Diego so it was a bit more of a change then we thought.. My wife & I own a maid service here in S.D and been planning to return (alone this time) and try and make a go at it there... Allthough we know the money and the maid business is not as profitable there, we need the change and we really like FL... The weather in St.Pete/Clearwater is awesome.... The pace is a bit slower so we are also considering Orlando or east coast as we have 5 kids ranging from 12 to 10 months.... We pay $1,700 for a 3 bed 2.5 bath 1,350 sqft townhouse with a 1 car garage.. Our electrict bill is $190 per month without running hvac!!!! So it would be nice to see our buck go further..
FYI... It is tough to view and respond with long text via my iPhone

warm weather and sunshine--everyone wanted to be outdoors more. Every time we go north in the winter months, we are so glad tobe living in Florida.

Overall, do you like the weather better in the Tampa Bay area or San Diego?

I kinda feel the same way when we are up north in the winter too. But then from April-December I wish we could be in southern CT.

I know that feeling. Do not know if I can handle one more winter here.

My kids are going crazy to get outside to play, swim and have some fun.

So looks like the biggest reason to move to Florida is having a real life!

In the "Sunshine".

My kids played multiple travel/school sports 12 months a year. They didn't complain about having nothing to do in the winters.
