See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Well I moved back to Michigan to be with my family because we have a larger number of family members here rather than im Pennsylvania (we meaning my husband, my daughter and I) but we have been here since July and have yet to find a job that can support us so we are with my mom. I have had some negative feed back about being with my mom and complaining but im to the point where I can not mentally take it anymore but I do not know what to do, on one side of my mind I think we should stay here and try and stick it out and the other side of my mind says to go where we can get financial help from my mother in law until we can make it on our own but my husband and I had to go and complicate things by getting pregnant again, and i know that we should have waited so please leave it to me to say that. I already know that while living with family is not the time nor place for it. but the fact of the matter is that its done and over with and im pregnant so that aside, I dont know if we should go back or not, here in Michigan we are staying with my mom in her 2 bedroom home with three other people. If we go back to PA where we moved from just 4 short months ago we could move in with his mom and step dad that have a spair room for us and another spair room for my daughter, while we cant stay their perminently because I do not get along with my brother-in-laws wife we would be able to move out with in a couple of months and still have enough time to get our own place before the baby is born. But I just feel like im running back and forth and I dont know what to do, here we have somewhere to stay, but theres not enough room for us and its hard to find a job or we can go where there is room for us and he could probably get his old job back and even if he cant get his old job back there are several places that he could go to get one. I feel like moving back to PA is the right thing to do but its going to cause so many problems with my family because they feel like I need to stay here so that I can be with them because no one in my family has ever moved away before but I was gone for two years and I loved it, but after two years of hearing that i needed to come home my husband and i decided to try and nothing seems to be working out and we cant afford to live on our own without help for a while.
