Ladies, We are moving from Texas to New Jersey area due to my husband's job. I'm not familiar with northern USA except visiting NY and Boston for vacation. I have lived majority of my US life in Texas and LOVE it here. We had no plans to move out of Texas and suddenly plan changed. My husband and I were not even looking for opportunities in Northern states and this opportunity cannot be passed. Few questions: How is life in north states? Is Winter really bad? We are renting a big apartment (condo style and it's 2000 square feet). But our son is going to be home for few months and won't go to daycare. How can I entertain an active toddler in winter? I'll be VERY pregnant and deliver in December. My parents will be with me to manage the kids. I'll be working from home in November and after maternity leave. But I'll be looking for job in NJ/NY area right after delivery. How is NJ/NY job market? I'm a nervous wreck right now. So worried about the lifestyle change, winter and much more. Kinda looking for a reassurance, I guess. TIA!
