      We moved to TN 2.5 years ago, and it is nice. You all up north will

      laugh, but it gets too cold here for me! LOL! It has taken me

      forever to make friends, though, like nowhere I’ve ever lived. I

      don’t know why. The cost of living is low here compared to FL

      (where we lived before); the taxes and insurance for housing there

      we couln’t afford (though I would have liked to stay there). TN has

      a horrible sales tax, IMO, like almost 10%. However, there is no

      state income tax in TN. We have also lived in GA, and it was

      reasonable, too. Lower sales tax, but a state income tax. They all

      get you somehow. IMO, Atlanta metro’s job market is flooded (too

      many people, not enough jobs), but I could be wrong. I guess it

      depends on what you do and what your education is.

      I love to hear where people live and how they fare. My DH and I are

      still looking for the perfect place! Maybe we were just meant to

      wander…

      My husband works for a huge computer company and makes around $45K

      per year. Honestly, I’m just happy he has a job and we have good

      health insurance. But we live on one income and often we don’t know

      how it will all work out…but it does.
