My little sister is leaving me!

August 4th, 2006 at 04:20 pm

My sister is 37 married w/ 2 kids. She has been a registered nurse for 2 yrs now. My BIL works for the airlines. My parents, sister and I have lived within 6 miles of each other since we moved out on our own.

Well, about three weeks ago my sister tells us her and BIL are moving to NC. My BIL was aceepted for a transfer at the airline he works for. His family lives there. They are not moving there because of them, rather because Orlando, FL is not the town we knew as children. It is crowded, the traffic is horrible and the schools are overcrowded and the crime rate is way up. Also, the price of homes here is astronomical compared to what they were a few years ago. That is why they are moving. Well we want to move there too but in a few years when we are in the right place. My inlaws are moving there too as soon as they sell their home here. They have built a home on a mountain,

My sister put in an offer on a home today. It is 3,000 sq ft. in a gorgeous subdivision. The home has wood floor, fireplace, two bonus rooms, etc. The price...... $379k but they offerd $360k due to outdated appliances. The same house would sell here for $525k easily. They sold the home they bought here 3 yrs ago that they paid $140k for for $269,900. They sold an acre of land they bought for $45k four years ago for %200!!! My parents will move when we do.

I am looking so forward to escaping from here myself. I cannot understand why people continue to flock to live here.

    I lived in DeLand, fl. all my life and could not wait to leave there. I live 10 miles from North Carolina, in the mountains of North Georgia. I have been here 22 years and cannot understand why anyone wants to live in florida. It is so quiet and peaceful here. I am in Blairsville, Ga.. No crime, no traffic!!

    It's so hard to have family move. I have one brother and his wife here nearby where I live in MN, but my other brother and his family are too far away in Alaska. We use the phone and the internet for keeping in touch and for sharing photos, but it's not the same as being nearby. What good luck for your family to eventually be together!
