cjohnson- Thanks for the heads up =) I appreciate it, but we already researched and got the idea of the price. It is expensive, but we'de actually be moving about 45 minutes outside of DC. There are a few reasons we chose the area, but the main one is a particular college we are looking to attend. It had both the degrees we want which is pretty hard to find. I had a choice of about 8 cities, and this was the only one that had a city within 30 minutes. The others were tooooo far out. There are a few other reasons we chose it. Though the rent is high, we have found a few places that are independently owned in little suburbs around the town in VA that we're looking at which are affordable. I compared the prices to the ones where I'm from (where I would have to live if I moved near my ex-husband for custody purposes) and the prices are roughly the same. But the pay where he lives is about half, which makes a huge difference. I really appreciate your concern though. Makes me feel good =D
Ace- I totally understand what you mean! It's the same here. Food is sooo cheap whe ordering out, and you get SO much for your money that sometimes ordering out is better than buying from the store. Especially with the price of meat here, along with spices and everything to flavor and cook it. It gets expensive, so buying it out almost makes sense at times. I will miss that when we go to the USA, but at he same time I'll have more to work with in the kitchen, so I'm excited.
