I read the pinned post and I will answer the questions first and also add to it/ask other questions.
-Where you are working
I am a stay at home mom right now. Fibromyalgia killed my career as a crime scene technician. My husband works for Serv-pro which is a water and fire damage restoration and mold mediation company. He has also done work as a drywaller, has done ceilings (popcorn and such), warehouse, and has a license to drive a forklift. Pretty much you teach him a job and he takes off with the intent to be the best he can be. LOL

-How much you are willing to spend on housing
We are selling our house for around $69,000.00 but not sure what we may actually get. We plan to at least put down $35,000.00 and are wanting to stay around $135,000.00 at the highest. I prefer older homes from the 1800's to the early 1900's but understand in my price range that may not happen.

-How long of a commute you're willing to tolerate
He says an hour, but I would like for the poor man to not have to drive too long each way. I felt bad when he had a 35min commute. I would have to see how well my body feels and if I can find doctors that can really help instead of just wanting me to eat medicine that would make me sleep my life away before I try for a job.

-If you have kids: Private school or public school?
Public. I have a 3 year old so we are not doing school YET.

-What type of neighborhood environment you are looking for: small town feeling? small city excitement? suburbia delight?
I prefer somewhere between small town and small city. I want neighbors, but not spend two hours in traffic just to get groceries.

-Community amenities important to you
Parks, nature parks, family fun things to do.

-Pie or cake?

We are trying to move out of Georgia. I can't handle really hot summer weather 9-10months out of the year anymore. With my fibromyalgia, my body does not regulate temperature well so I easily end up with heat exhaustion no matter what I do. I can honestly handle cold better than heat. Which means fewer chances I can be outside with our son here in Georgia. I want to have all four seasons instead of two months of kind of winter-like weather and then summer. I do have allergies, but they are more aggravated by pollution and dogwoods. We prefer the more mountainous areas. I am not much for mountains way off in the distance lol. I like to be IN the mountains. I also want to have some snow. I am so done with the random ice storms in Georgia. If I am going to be cold, reward me with some snow from time to time. My questions are, is the cost of living and taxes such as yearly and state tax when purchasing things reasonable? Is the weather what I am looking for? Remember..I am used to Georgia weather..where we have at least two months with upper 90's and some days in the 100's. Is the weather in the mountains bearable in the manner I am looking for? Is there a good amount of jobs? We are also kind of nerdy and geeky silly pranksters. We prefer living peacefully around others and really do not do well with drama and petty. Artsy easy-going types really. Anyone have any suggestions or input?

After reading your post, Bowling Green come to mind. I'm not that familiar with it but maybe somebody else will jump in that is.

If you're wanting near the mountains, you'll need to go way further east than Bowling Green. I'd say somewhere east of I-75 south of Lexington. Wherever you settle, I hope you'll take time to see the rest of the state. There's a lot to see!
