A Difficult Decision
Where To Go?
I have had a dilemma going on. If you read my hubs, you probably know that our house recently burned to the ground. At this moment in time, we are a homeless family. Yes, I had insurance (not nearly enough). I am writing this hub at a friends house who has graciously allowed me to stay here until things work out.
Again, if you follow my hubs at all, you also know that we have had a lot of drama and stress here in Lebanon, Missouri.
Now, we feel is the time to leave this community. There are many GREAT people here, but the stress has been a hindrance to my wife's health, and probably my health too.
We have one son who lives in Chicago with his wife and daughter. We have another son who lives in St Louis and they are expecting a daughter real soon.
We have come down to this: get somewhere in between both.
I plan on renting a car and going on a drive through the different places we have considered.
The reason I am writing this hub is to get your ideas. Any townships I have left out? Please comment! I am also leaving a poll on here, so give your suggestion on where we should go. Please keep in mind these important factors:
- Employment: I have done many things in life, but one of my main jobs was a press brake operator. I also know landscaping, but that is only seasonal. I have also done some construction jobs.
- Health: My wife is on kidney dialysis and has had major heart surgery. There must be dialysis where we go and somewhat close.
- Housing-Our plans are to purchase a newer trailer home(mobile home) in a trailer court. We will visit these courts first to see the "view".
The pictures and maps are towns I am strongly considering. The poll below will list quite a few more.
Where would you go if you were us?
