So the place I live is nice. It's a 2 bedroom apartment in a duplex. My aunt lives upstairs. Next door is my mothers duplex. She lives downstairs, and my bi-polar, irrational, PITA brother, his wife and baby, live upstairs from her. (GULP) it's going alright. I gave my kids their own bedrooms, and use the living room as my room, dining room as the living room and have an eat in kitchen. (make sense??) SO recently a friend of mine offered me his house to rent for a hundred dollars cheaper. I'd be in a house instead of apartment, have my own bedroom, and be away from my crazy family (but still in the same town). The only catch is he's going to be putting the house for sale soon, and I"d live in it until it sells. Deal with the showings and stuff. The real estate market sucks here..so it potentially could be a while before I'd have to move. This would certainly be inconvenient moving a couple more times, but when it came time to leave the house, I would be moving somewhere NOT next door to my family. At the same time living close to my family is nice for my kids primarily. Gramma is next door (and when she's not napping kids can go visit) my cousin lives with my aunt, and every other weekend his little boy is here and gets along great with my kids. There is just sooo much to consider. I'd be saving a hundred dollars a month, and have a house. I'd be away from my crazies, but close enough. I'd have my own bedroom. There are proper closets in the house as opposed to my complete absense of closet space. Downs are I'd move away from an area I love. Very close to a ton of kids that go to school with my kids. I'd have to move like 2 more times (have moved twice in the last 18 months). I just hit my year mark at my current place, and don't wanna do damage uprootin my kids AGAIN. Please some input would be great!!!
