I currently commute 23 miles each way to work. .. almost an hour commute with traffic. I have stayed at my apt now for 4 yrs for the sake of my kid's schooling. Oldest son graduates this june and my lease is up June 30. My other son was supposed to graduate next year but is not on track to graduate due to health issues and missing too much school. So originally I didn't plan to move til next yr but we are moving next month. I don't want to stay 2 more yrs so my son will be switching schools (online or independent studies).
My problem now is I didn't have money set aside for move/deposits. So of course I am second guessing my decision. :(
The new apt is 50.00 more a month, but I will have 3 bedrooms vs 2. And it is one block from work. I spend about 300 a month in gas right now ... I could save probably 250 a month just by now walking to work. In the long run, this will be mothing but positive for my kids and I... but I am doubting my ability to do this right now. Why does change have to be so hard? Even when it's a good change. Ugh
