My husband recently got offered a job. It paid a lot more money, but we would need to relocate to Alexandria. We want to learn more about living there and the cost of life in Alexandria.
I started searching for some information about Alexandria. I wanted to know how many people lived there and how big the city is. I went online and typed it in my search. There was a convenient little box on the side that gave me lots of information about how big it was and the population there.
Then I started searching for the cost of living in Alexandria. I researched the real estate that was for sale and how much it cost. It was a lot more than the homes here were, including our own. I found out that it is a little expensive to live there and even though my husband would be getting a raise, it would still equal out to how we are living now. It was a choice that seemed pretty clear to us. We could stay where we are and live the same as we have been or move to another town. Since our family is located here, which is two hours away from Alexandria, we decided to stay where we are at.
We have owned our home for about ten years and uprooting our kids from their schools and friends just doesn’t seem reasonable to do. If the job paid a lot more and we would be able to live more comfortably, I would have no problem moving there.
My husband is happy with his job, but since he was offered a new one, we choose to look into it to see if it was any better. It may have been better to look at the pay, but other than that it would increase the amount of work he would need to do which just isn’t reasonable. I am happy with the job he has now and the benefits too. I don’t want to have to change any of that. His job is very lenient, and he has been there for as long as we have owned our home. It just isn’t worth throwing everything down the drain to go to a new job in a new city. Hiring a Home addition contractor to make your perfect home
While Alexandria looks like a great city to live in and has lots of things to do, it is too expensive for my family. I don’t work, and if we moved there, I would need to get a job. We are going to continue living in our town instead of moving to a new city. Our kids are too young, and the money just isn’t enough to make the move. It is a great job with a great title, and hopefully, they can find someone else to fill the position soon. If that position opens up around here, maybe my husband will look into it more.
