She is pretty nice for letting me tag along. She is my sugar momma. We decided 2 years ago that Illinois was a sinking ship and we needed to get out while the kids were still young. We both grew up here, went to school here, and a lot of our friends are all still in the area so leaving was not a very easy choice. In the end this is a great move for her career and I'm one of those people that learns anything pretty quick so I just pick up what I can when we land on our feet. Maybe I'll take some time off, if the budget allows, to take care of the kids until they are both in school full time.
Just wait until you see what food costs per pound here .vs what you're used to (I'm sure you've already noticed the real estate prices).
Most likely, your budget will be fine.
