Not sure what to do? Move or stay!

Alright, I am the type of person to not accept change very easy. Very hard on myself when it comes to making the right or wrong decision. I am in a situation where moving from my currrent home may or may not be a good choice. I currently live in the country. It is beautiful here. I have room to roam and my neighbors are more than a half mile away from me. Plenty of room and my home I am in love with. Problem now, my neighbors house was just broken into and it took the police thirty minutes to get out here. The trip to take my kids to school sports practice and get groceries is putting a hardship on my wallet with these gas prices. I would love the convience of what town trips have to offer, but again I do not handle change very well. Just wanting to know what anyone else would do in this situation. I would love advice on how to handle this. TIA

Re: Not sure what to do? Move or stay!

Can you afford to move? It seems like you like the idea of living in town. It may be a good move for you. The kids would be closer to other kids to play with. You may be closer to other neighbors to chat with. You mentioned your neighbor getting burglarized, so, I sense that you may be afraid of being by yourself in the country and the fear of being burglarized may be weighing on your mind. If you feel isolated, then maybe a move would be good for you, peace of mind, etc. But, remember, there will always be burglaries, no matter whether you live in town or in the country. Crime is everywhere. And especially in this economy, I believe there will be more crime, as people are out of money and then they do crime to survive, etc. I know change is a hard thing, but you can keep this in mind, and just move forward, start looking and planning. No one handles change very well. You should think about your children's future, etc. Can you discuss this with someone in your family? Good luck.

I would stay in the country, install a locking gate on my driveway, consider buying a gun, limit sports activities for the kids and/or start a carpool with a trusted neighbor who also has kids, grow/raise as much of my own food as possible, and shop less often for larger quantities of food.

have any good insurance policy by investing your money that will be effective for you and your kids and will also not cause any future recessions to you

Re: Not sure what to do? Move or stay!

Wow, this is scarey. I am having that same dilemma. Right now we living in an area with crime rate rising each second of the day. Drugs at every corner, people not cleaning their own area.
We have now found a house out in the country, travel costs for hubby will be some what more. But we have finally put our minds together and think we will make it.
But I still find myself wondering.. are we doing the right thing.
