    Default Relocating to Richmond, VA

    from CANADA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH

    such a big move...they are looking at transfering dh over there (with us of course) to help grow our USA division.

    The reason we are considering it...they would pay our rent for a year and move us down there!!! (details being negotiated) and of course full medical plan (so we'd get similar to what we get here..)

    we're looking at the Chesterfield, VA area...

    so i have to research couponing..(finally get to get some of those great deals i read about..)

    cheaper gas prices ..(yep even though you guys find them high, we pay over 5$ a gallon)

    we're excited for the adventure..

    the houses are CHEAP over there..the average 3 bedroom here is about half a million..and usually needs paint and some maintenance redone..

    kids will have to go to english school (instead of french school)

    i'm nervous as heck..but i hope it'll go well...

    we can't pass up a chance to save 18000$ in a year...(will be a down payment if we decide to stay next year.)

    Wow Celina - that sounds like a huge decision to make but a worthwhile adventure for everyone in your family! That's something I'd definitely consider too! What would your paperwork say? Work visa?
