My family will soon be moving out of state, to have a better chance at good jobs and better housing prices. We have already visited the area we will be moving to, but only once. We have some family in the new area but they are all prettty busy, so when we move we'll pretty much be on our own. Both my DH and I grew up in the town we're in now - neither one of us has ever lived anywhere else. As the moving date gets closer, we are both starting to get a little nervous - new place, no friends, no "safety net" of parents nearby, no idea where the hell everything is... Its getting a little scary. Any advice from those who have uprooted to a new place?Answer Question

Military, I have moved more then I would like. First get to know your neighbors, find one or two that are friendly and ask them to give the low down. Get a city map or a navigator thingy. Find the workforce commission or scour the want ad. The local library will have info and the Liberians usually are very helpful with all sorts of info. The city and city parks and recreation websites usually have activities and good info. Be active in the kids activities and schools. Put yourself out there and you will make new friends which will give you a support network. You and your hubby will learn to rely on each other more and build a stronger relationship. After a few months it will start feeling like home. The unknown is always scary, force yourself to make in known and the fear will disappear.
