For a year we lived in Virginia due to hubby's work. We did enjoy our stay there. We love the area, the school where my son attended Pre-K; and to think that we live in a small town yet, we are close to everything from school, shopping mall, groceries and everything. We still miss the place every once in awhile. We also miss our weekend visit with my brother in - law and his family in North Carolina, and the famous Virginia Beach in VA. Talking back North Carolina, my brother in-law got lay off from his job of 10 years and is now unemployed. He still gets unemployment benefits from the government, which I supposed enough to cover all their monthly expenses except health insurance. On this case, they should consider purchasing a NC short term health insurance. This would help them in case something happens and till he finds a permanent job. His wife's part time job could really pay the insurance and he doesn't have to worry paying the bill. It's been a year now, hope my brother in-law finds a descent job soon for he has family to support and or relies on him.
