What would you do? (need advice real bad here)

on one hand, it takes a quarter tank of gas round trip to his job. so we want to move closer to them
the other hand, we fouond a school that is eager to her our kids advance more than their other schools ever did this school understands the fact that kids don't learn at one rate they learn at different rates and ways.
heres our problem, do we buy the house were in now and have the kids going to the new school, or do we move and hope for the best? it's hard but do you worry more about how much money you save by moving closer to his jobs, or do you worry about the kids education more?
we live check to check and the kids are growing like weeds and need new clothes.he uses $100. everytime he fills up the diesil truck.
i told him to go and talk to the school down the street from him and see what they say, he said tomorrow he'll do it.
i am so unsure of anything right now, i hate the house we're living in right now, it's falling apart, the whole house needs alot done to it. what do you think?

  • I would move and find a good school closer to his job, or as some of the other Moms said a different carmight be the solution.

  • I'm a little confused... which home is closer to work?

    Even with a public school you can get clearance to cross boundaries to go to the school of your choice. See if that applies for you. If it does, then best of both worlds... MOVE and keep the school.

  • different vehicle that isnt so expensive, and why would you entertain the thought of buying a house you hate if you live paycheck to paycheck it will just fall down around you if you cant do repairs etc?
