Quite a bit has happened since I last posted on here. The main thing I’m most excited about is that I didn’t have to move to another town after all. My daughter decided it would be easier for her to relocate to this area since she is traveling quite a distance to work here. While she has to wait until her contract is up at her current apartment, just knowing I don’t have to trek across the state with all of my belongings is good news.
Looking for apartments made me realize that I want a larger apartment even though I’ll be staying in my same hometown. So, I found one. It’s only 3 miles from where I live now and I’ve been on a waiting list for months. It is the most sought after apartment complex in this town and I knew when I applied I’d be on a long waiting list. What is appealing to me is that there are no upstairs and downstairs apartment so I won’t be above anyone nor will anyone be above me. I can be patient when I have to be. It’s down to one other being ahead of me. I’m hoping this will be my forever home. I love that it’s walking distance to everything from the library to DG to restaurants.
Playground for Abby
Painting classes and other arts and crafts activities I’d enjoy
Location, location, location
More room and storage
Safe, neighborhood watch enforced
Private front porch and patio
I could get stuck in a middle apartment where there aren’t any woods to walk Peanut
3 times higher price-wise than currently paying
I may not get a separate dining room
I just returned from a week + long vacation in Texas. My sisters, mom and I go every year and I take Abby because she is with me during the summers (grandchild). While we were there, a tropical storm started moving in so we ended up leaving early. After we arrived back home, the condo we stayed in which belongs to one of my sisters, was affected by the storm. They were just getting things back to normal after the hurricane hit. Now, there is more water damage as well as other issues. They just can’t catch a break there.
I’ve turned another year older and it’s making me realize that there are still things I want to do with my life. Like going back to college to learn a new trade. I’d love to take a photography & video course and I’m currently looking into that. I think it could help me with my blogging an, maybe give me a little income on the side. Oh, snap.
Tata, we’re off to have some more summer fun today.
