I Just Finished the Move

I Just Finished the Move

I started to look for apartments in Wichita last month, but it did not go that well until I just lucked into a good place. In fact this place has a big lake that belongs to the apartment complex. The thing was more or less just a fluke, since I had not seen this guy in ten years since we were in college together and he was looking for a new roommate at the same time that I was looking for a place to live He told me the story of the other guy, who apparently should have been taking some crazy pills and was not. He told me this guy had seemed really normal for a couple of years, but then he had stopped taking those pills and that turned him into a really scary guy who did not go to work or pay his share of the rent. Obviously you do not want that sort of roommate. Read the rest of this entry

Moving the Kids in the Middle of a School Year Was Not Easy

Moving the Kids in the Middle of a School Year Was Not Easy

There is a lot to do when you move. Everyone knows that. It is not easy to pack up everything and move it to a new place. It is harder to move the people than it is to move the stuff. It was tough on the kids to move in the middle of high school in the middle of a school year. They were not happy, but they were making the best of it. We looked for Manassas VA apartments together in the evenings online. We all had a stake in this. We pretty much let the kids pick the place we were going to live. My wife and I were actually okay with the move. We never completely liked where we had been living, and the chance at a fresh start was exciting to us. Read the rest of this entry

My Long Commute is Finally over

My Long Commute is Finally over

I needed to find a place to live that is close to the airport. I was living with my parents when I got the job at the airport, but I decided to not move even though the commute time was nearly 50 minutes each way. I was not sure I was going to stick with this job, so I did not want to get locked into a lease for an apartment or rental house and end up finding something better for work. However, not long ago, I did a search for luxury apartments for South Charlotte because I knew that this was a job that I want to keep for the rest of my working years, if possible.

I make a great living there, and I really enjoy what I do. Those two factors alone make it a dream job, but having the coworkers that I do makes me never want to leave. Read the rest of this entry

Biscayne Bay Has Always Been Our Very Favorite Place

Biscayne Bay Has Always Been Our Very Favorite Place

We have wandered all over the country in our RVs. We started out with a Class B van type RV before moving up to a large Class C. We have been everywhere from Alaska to the Florida Keys as far as north and south go, and as far as the Outer Banks and Ventura for the east and west. Of all the places we have been, we like Biscayne Bay, Florida the best. We decided to come in off the road and check out apartments for rent in North Bay Village. We had sold our house a long time ago, and used my brother’s address as a home base.

We were looking forward to becoming residents of Florida. We traveled in our RV always seeking the sunshine and warm weather with short stops in cooler climates. We prefer shorts and tees to parkas and gloves. We found Treasure On The Bay in the North Village, and we have settled in quite nicely. Our RV was overhauled and put into storage.

A New Vacation Tradition Has Started

A New Vacation Tradition Has Started

The last time my family has been on a vacation together was when we were all kids before we started heading off to college. We are all getting older now, but thankfully we are all still alive and doing well. I was looking at luxury vacation rentals for Aspen for my wife and I when I thought it would be really nice to get one of the larger ones for all of us. I have two older brothers who are married and one younger sister who is married and has two kids. With my three children and our parents, that meant we would need to get a pretty big rental.

I knew just the site to go to in order to find exactly what we needed. Read the rest of this entry

Keeping the Girls in the Same School District

Keeping the Girls in the Same School District

My twin daughters and I found ourselves in a unique position not long ago. They are both juniors in high school, and we have lived in the same school district all their lives. They have friends who they have known ever since they were toddlers. That is why when we were forced to move, I knew that we were going to look at apartments in Ballantyne NC because there was no way I was going to tear my girls away from the only life they have ever known. I remember how awful it was when my family moved during my high school years, and I was not going to do that to them.

However, I did have to find us a nice place to live. There are all kinds of house rentals in the area, but I was not happy with any that I had looked at. Read the rest of this entry

Luxury Apartments Are Reasonable Prices

Luxury Apartments Are Reasonable Prices

Luxury is a word that many people throw around, but never actually experience. I wanted to find a luxury apartment near my work. I am a single woman of means and I didn’t want to just settle for any old apartment that was not up to date and didn’t have the amenities that I wanted. To me luxury is amazing layout with large bedrooms and a great kitchen with modern appliances. I went online to do a search for luxury apartments in colton and at first I just couldn’t find anything I liked. The rooms were either too small or the kitchen was do old Betty Crocker would have cooked in it. Read the rest of this entry

Great Place for Luxury Living

Great Place for Luxury Living

Your website was so very helpful when my sister needed to find a new place to live. My sister and her young daughter needed to find a three bedroom apartment. I know she wanted the extra bedroom for when our mom and dad would come to visit. Plus they had a dog, so they needed to make sure the apartment allowed for pets. So many apartments frown on animals. But I knew if we looked hard enough we could find the perfect place for all three of them. My sister had just gotten a divorce a yearly earlier and had to sell her home for the settlement, so moving out of her home was an emotional thing.

I know she wanted to find a safe, beautiful new home for her and her daughter. Divorce is a hard thing for a little girl to go through. Read the rest of this entry

I Need to Find a Place to Stay

I Need to Find a Place to Stay

I just got back from a party at some Mission Viejo California apartments where these friends of mine have a place. There are three of them living in a three bedroom place, which is just about the only way that any of them could afford to live in this place. If you tried to get one of them on your own you would need to be relatively rich, and if you just had two roommates that would still be pretty expensive. With three of them it costs less than half as much as it would if you were living alone there. Of course I was pretty jealous, especially after I saw the swimming pool. It is really nice and there was a nice party going on until late at night. I actually met a girl, but she was obviously just teasing me and I found out that she had a boyfriend who was out of town.

So Many Things to Do in Colorado

So Many Things to Do in Colorado

I needed to find the best apartments in Colorado Springs because I wanted to enjoy my retirement without the burden of being tied down to a house. I spent forty years living in my home with a wife and children and enjoyed every minute of it. The only things I didn’t like were the pedestrian chores involved in home ownership. Mowing the lawn and shoveling the sidewalk isn’t bad when you’re a young man, but after you hit fifty every year gets harder. The kids left the home and then I retired and my wife passed away. I was ready for a change.

We lived in Denver and frankly I never did like the city. It’s only gotten worse in the last couple of decades as we’ve had a huge influx of people from California and the place has gotten quite crowded. I wanted to chuck the house and move somewhere else, but I didn’t want to leave Colorado. Despite some problems, this is still probably the best state to live in hands down.
