<<< Hi, Penny - also, if you really like living in Tucson, maybe it's worth the extra expense? Unless, you already have friends in Texas (or whatever place would be the cheapest) - is it worth moving somewhere you don't know anybody? Especially, as you get older?

There's security in having friends and acquaintances living close by, or at least within commuting distance. It can be lonely in a new place. People that care about you can help you when you need help, and you can help them if they need it
