Second thoughts

So we went to look at the first rental property today and I had a much different reaction than I expected. TO be honest I completely panicked. I can't move!!!! I'm way too young and irresponsible to be making these kinds of decisions. This idea was great on paper but in reality we would actually be moving to a completely different place! *gasp*
Maybe if my husband was a little more on board with the idea I wouldn't feel so insecure but I can not make this life changing decision by myself. I'm really happy in chilliwack aren't I? Things are just starting to fall into place aren't they? Why do I always want to run from happiness? The minute things start going the way I want I run. Is it finally time to grow up and let myself be happy? How do you go about that?
OK enough with the questions and self doubt back to this "house" we went to see today. It is in a beautiful area with quad trail, cows, trees, hay fields, the works. It's even at the end of a gravel road for pete sake. The "house" on the other hand is actually a trailer. In it's defense it is quite a large trailer but still can a family of 7 live in a trailer with zero storage space, not even a garage?? Right now we live in a 5 bedroom duplex with a garage and a huge backyard. We pay $1350 plus our utilities. These people wanted $1400 plus utilities for their 3 bedroom trailer! Eeeeek!! And panic ensues!
So what do I do? Can't someone else make this decision for me?

are you renting your house you are in now?

I think the only person that can decide for you is you. IMO if your hubby is not 100% on board, is that going to effect how you end up feeling when you get there? That might make him totally unhappy, and when Mommy or Daddy are unhappy, no one is happy. I say weight your options, go from there.

Can you keep looking? Why isn't your husband on board with the whole move? I know exactly what you are feeling. We have almost upped and moved a couple of times but things are always too comfortable here. It's a hard and "adult" decision! Why do we have to be responsible adults anyway?! good luck hun!

I think it's just our nature to panic when looking at a new place to live. Good luck!

Hang in there.
