Pretty lonely, and afraid...

I was offered a full time position out of town, so I took it. This job pays less, but is a full time job (my old job was temporary). I love this new job, exactly what I want to do, helping people. I'm planning on moving my boys up when the school year is over in May; didn't want to disrupt their school year by beginning a new one. They are at my house living with my mom (4 hrs away). Its been 4 weeks and I'm terribly homesick. My bf has been supportive, but lately distant and I don't know if its paranoia by my homesickness or what. My children are missing me more and more day by day. There are new standards to keep my new job and I'm struggling with that right now... any suggestions?
oh.. I'm also pretty low on money, at least for now...

I would look at moving your children with you now as well.
I moved school 3 times in 1 year and survived. Unless they are in their final year of school it's not a big deal.
Is your boyfriend the Father of your children?

Well, it is good you have a supportive mother who will help you out. How old are your kids? The end of the school year is pretty far off. Kids are resilient and will make new friends. It may be best to be together rather than apart.

Oh, it doesn't matter much anymore, my boyfriend broke up with me... My children have good communication with their fathers. I've spoken to their fathers and they don't mind me moving and taking them with me. I've made a decision to move into a place of my own, quickly. I'll also ask my children if they'd want to move as soon as next month or wait out the rest of the school year. Thank you all, for your advice :)

I was asking because if your children see their Father then you would have to apply to the courts to move them.
Do you have court orders regarding the children and custody, visitation (with their Father) and child support?
I wasn't asking about your boyfriend and your relationship, it's the children and their relationship with their Father that will affected.

No. He's been supportive but lately he's been very distant... For whatever reason he doesn't trust me and always finds a reason to assume I'm cheating on him (we're in a long distance relationship, see each other on wknds). I don't know what to do... I love him and he's a great guy. He had a lot of issues with his ex wife when they were married and it seems those fears and doubts are coming at me.

My mother isn't that great...constantly reminds me that she has to "stop what she's doing" to watch my boys. My aunts are very supportive though. Thank you, for your advice to bring them sooner.
