I have lived in Florida on and off for over 20 yrs. Sometimes I hate it and wish I was somewhere else but most of the time I like it. I love the beach but there are times when I don't feel its enough to keep me here. Cost of living here is so high, I can't find a decent place to live at a decent price. Right now I feel like running away to another state but I will probuably stick it out because my kids are here.
