Ashford Retreat apartments in Marietta, Georgia–about 30 minutes north of Atlanta–seem like the perfect place to live. In addition to being a hop skip and jump from Atlanta, Marietta has its own attractions, including the nearby Cumberland Mall, restaurants, and entertainment shops. And that’s not even mentioning the amenities that come with the apartments, which includes a fitness center, a swimming pool, a large and wide clubhouse, area that have BBQs and picnic benches, a playground for children, a walking path around a stunning lake, and sport courts. Living in these apartments allows residents to get away from the city without being deprived of any entertainment and excitement.
If that sounds luxurious, just wait until I tell you about the actual homes. The apartments already have efficient electrial appliances, including an air conditioner, a ceiling fan, a refridgator, and a dishwasher. Isn’t it nice to not have to worry about finding the right appliances, and figuring out how to move them in? While the apartments do not come with a television set, a washing machine, or a dryer, there are connections that makes each of their set ups seamless once moved in. Each apartment is at terrace level and includes a patio or balcony, allowing residents to marvel at all of the stunning views this community has to offer, but also comes with window coverings to allow residents their privacy. And with large closets, both hardwood floors and carpets, a garbage disposal and an electronic thermostat, it is impossible to live uncomfortably in an Ashford Retreat apartment.
Do this description sound like heaven on earth to you? It does to me. My hope is that one day I can be so lucky as to live in an Ashford Retreat apartment with my husband, children, and dog, and experience true paradise.
I was really pretty upset when I realized that I had brought something unpleasant back from my business trip. I was staying at a pretty good hotel in Boston and I never noticed it when I was there. However within a few days back home I had to start trying to figure out where to get a bed bug exterminator in NYC. I had heard some time ago that they had succeeded in getting rid of the nasty things in this country, but obviously they are persistent and they are really eager to tag along with anyone who stays in a hotel any place in the world. They were always in the other parts of the world and once they got back in this country, that was all that it took. The things will obviously spread like a wild fire as soon as you give them a toehold any place in the country. Continue reading I Just Got Back from Boston
Of course you see it all of the time on TV, where they show you how easy it is to buy a house, make some improvements and then sell it for a profit. That is not exactly what we are doing, because the plan is to live here for as long as we need to and then try to turn a profit. The place is tiny and it has a fair number of problems, so we paid rather little for it. At first we called a Ottawa carpet cleaning place and when they told us how much it would cost to clean the carpets we decided to just rip them out. Continue reading We Bought a Small House
When my younger sister told me that her husband left her, she told me that everything would be fine and then I didn’t need to worry about her. But what she didn’t tell me is that she was extremely depressed and she was having a lot of trouble with day-to-day life. I live at the Stone Oak Apartments across town, and I told her that she is always welcome to come here and get an apartment in the same complex. I told her that it’s nicer than where she lives, and I would really appreciate her being around all the time.
My sister is a very proud person. She often doesn’t talk about what’s bothering her, and she doesn’t want to be a burden to others. Continue reading It’s Always a Nice Thing for Family to Be Nearby
