It's MUCH tougher to get jobs in TN (where we just moved back to Orlando from 3 months ago) and the pay is a lot better.

I am Technical Support Specialist and he is a GIS Analyst.
Thank you for the update....

My husband has never recieved more than a 5% raise in the past 5 years but our insurance alone has doubled in the past 3 years. We are literally going backwards in the world. I don't know what to cut back on. You have to eat, you have to have power.

House is for sale, we are gettin out.
We are blessed up here in NW Florida, we received over 12% in pay raises and additional bonus this year. Our cost of living still is less than central & south Florida. My insurance triple to $1,500 but I got a new roof for under $400.00 from my insurance 2 years ago. Move this way and you should find our paradise....


This weekend the gas prices dropped to $2.80 a gallon, everyone had their boats out and many good things happening.
