See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I was thinking of selling all our stuff and moving to Mexico. We don't have much, but both vehicles are paid for and it would be enough to get down there and live for a few months.
DH's family is there. His father isn't well. He wants to spend time with him and this may be his only chance. It isn't like we are doing so wonderful here. Besides my family and school, I really don't have any attachments here.
I have looked into schools, there are some good universities. There is a private American school but I can't find anything about cost. I am educated enough to school my kids if that doesn't work out. We wouldn't be there forever, maybe a couple years.
I haven't brought it up to dh yet, but I'm sure he would be thrilled. He hasn't seen his family in over ten years. We all have passports and could go at anytime.
Just visiting isn't an option because we just don't have the money. We have been trying for years to save enough to go down there, but when you live paycheck to paycheck it is difficult. As soon as we get a little money built up, something always seems to come up.
I don't know if it is the right thing to do or not, but I'm not sure that is even the point. Regardless of material items, which have never meant much to me anyway, DH needs time with his family before it's too late. We have been living next to my family for ten years, I think it's his turn.
