I Got the Job...in Miami!
So, now that I got the job, what is there to do? EVERYTHING! I have to rent my house. But first, I have to declutter, pack excess stuff, and clean! And while I am doing all this, I am faced with all the what if scenarios! What if I don't like Miami? What if I don't like the job? What if my renters don't pay on time or at all?
The job I got is a good job. But it is not good enough for me to support 2 households. What's more than that is that I am moving with little or no relocation expenses as it stands. Ugh! And Miami appears to have a higher cost of living. Double Ugh!
And then, I have to decide what to do with my bulkier pieces of furniture that make my house look smaller. I think I will try a storage unit. Oh but my garage is under utilized. I think can move stuff in there.
Is this all worth it? I mean is living in Miami worth the inconvenience and risk. I am afraid once I consider the increase in housing expenses, that the slight increase in salary won't be worth it.
Where should I live in Miami? I have the choice of working in Ft. Lauderdale, North Miami, or South Miami near the keys. I have found you seem to get more house for the money in South Miami. I am looking for Sisterlocd's input here. lol!
I am anxious, nervous, excited and happy all at the same time. Wow! Well, back to cleaning for now.
