Gilbert vs. the Creek

O.k. I need some advice!

Chris and I had a great offer to move down to Gilbert into a rental home to be closer to work, school, and well, work and school. The house is beautiful....3,000 sq. ft. and is being offered to us for less than our current payment each month. The backyard is about an acre of grass, perfect for the boys and is in a cul-de-sac lot.

One of the biggest arguments Chris and I get into is about him getting off work right a 5 p.m. so he can get home to us at about 6 each night he doesn't have school. By moving closer, he would be able to spend more time with us while pursuing his career to become a nurse, and also save a little gas money and head ache from those long drives. So here is my list, let me know your thoughts:

closer to Chris' job
great family friendly home w/ yard and neighborhood
more room for a smaller price
saves gas money
backyard is much more relaxing and fun to play in than ours
no tile, just wood and carpet


I grew grew up in north Phoenix my whole life and it's been hard think of branching out of my comfort zone
away from grandma and grandpas house
moving in general is a pain in the neck
what if we find a house to buy? Then we'd have to move twice!
two story (air conditioning costs)
BIGGEST CON: the possibility of losing our nanny

SO, anyone who wants to help me figure this whole thing out, let me know!
