My husband is keeping our home, which I cannot afford on my own. So I am forced to move out and find a new place to live. The home that we are currently in is very nice, great neighborhood, great schools. We moved there so our daughter could have a good life. I can't afford a great place in a great neighborhood. I can afford a nice house in a not great area not great school. Or as my stbx demands, keep her in the school where she is and that I would be responsible for driving her there and back everyday, which is a problem especially if I take on a second job. Of course if I move to a good neighborhood good schools that would be ok with him, but he doesn't want to give me more money so that is possible. It may be the only way I can keep her in a nice place would be to share a house with my parents. I know it has advantages, the biggest of course is that my daughter would be well taken care of, I could take on another job or go back to school and have their support and I could actually save money and still afford to do fun things with my daughter, maybe even a vacation. On the other hand, I am 40 and hate, hate, hate the thought of having to live with them. Everyone keeps telling me to discover who I am without my husband, I don't know if I can do that while living with my parents. I know this would be somewhat temporary and probably best for my daughter but not best for me. I have always put my daughter first, part of the problem in my marriage, should I swallow my pride and accept their offer or try to make it on my own?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
