I have been contimplating moving to Florida to be with my aging mother and my 2 older sisters. My ex and his wife live here and my daughter lives with them..by her choice. See, I moved her with me to florida 3 years ago for 5 months..and she now says she hated it there and "never wants to set foot in that state again" she hated the school and wasn't treated very nice. Anyway, I see my daughter every other weekend and school vacations. That is becoming a hassle too lately..shes' at the age where friends and sleepovers are more important than coming to mom's. Recently, one of my sisters lost her boyfriend to pneumonia. She lost her husband of massive heart attach 7 years ago. She was devastated and I couldn't be there for her (in florida). My other sister tells me that my mom has been acting strange lately and I have concern for her. My long term boyfriend wants to move to florida, always has wanted to. It breaks my heart that i'm even considering moving to florida. But my sisters have confirmed my thoughts in that I have to worry about my future etc..I'll regret not doing what I wanted to do in life.. My daughter is happy and healthy and is in good hands. With todays technology I can keep in touch via cell phone, skype etc.. She can come with me on school vacations and come for the summer, or at least part of it. WHAT DO YOU YOU LADIES THINK? WHAT WOULD YOU DO??
