I'm about to undertake controversial living arrangement move. I pursue 2 goals. 1.The rent is almost 1/2 cheaper where I plan to move to. 2.I've been dreaming for years of living out in the Mojave desert. I'm 32 and I think I owe it to myself to achieve this. I know this move will cause lots of friction b/w my mother/grandma n I. I will be taking their great/grannddaughter 60 miles away. My mom is paranoid of driving on the freeway and my half-senile grandma does not drive at all. Although the rent and performance price is much better out there, this move might increase my commute time by as much as 12-20%. Not sure if I can cope well with this and I'm scared shitless. On the other hand, even if we double our gas/mileage cost, it still will be worth it financially. More bills would be paid on the credit cards etc. Plus I will no longer have to drive out to the desert on the weekend because I would LIVE there and can do all the starwatch I want in the summer(thus my screen name)! I laugh at those people with giant SUVs as they are royally fucked. Both of our cars are compact and economical. Within few years I plan to buy a hybrid to ease the gas pain LOL. So there, I think I said it.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
