It is not really a surprise, since we are in a job that is going to require you to move from time to time. The company has been expanding for some time and right now they are getting ready to staff up in the Atlanta area. The truth is that they seem to have been arguing about who to send for a long time and they decided that I would be the most willing. In fact I do not have much reason to be too unhappy. I started to look for website of apartment complexes close to the new location and I found a place that is really quite close. It is going to be in a suburb called McDonough and this complex is probably less than ten minutes away by car. Continue reading Getting Ready to Relocate This Week
I wanted a three bedroom apartment because I just wanted my girls to have a better life. They never complained about having to share a bedroom, but I knew that they were getting to the age where they deserved to have some privacy. I had been recently promoted, which meant that I was able to start looking for a better place to live. That is how I found Grand Prairie, which is definitely much nicer than any place we have lived in the past. The girls only remember our last apartment, but this is actually our fourth apartment since they were born.
It is our first apartment that has three bedrooms, and it is also our first apartment where we have more than one bathroom. I have my own private bath in my room, but the girls are always welcome to use it. Continue reading A Nice Place for My Small Family
I had been living with my folks ever since my divorce, and I really appreciated their support, both financially as well as emotionally. They helped me through the roughest part of my life, and that allowed me to heal. About 15 months after the divorce was final, I had paid off my debt and saved a small amount of money. I knew that it was time to look at apartments in the area, because I had decided that I was going to stay in Towson. My parents offered to let me stay with them. While I did appreciate that offer, I knew that it was time for me to move out on my own.
I needed to take my life back, and the best way to do that was to start living again. I looked at apartment complexes in the area, and I really liked the information that I saw associated with Rodgers Forge apartments. Continue reading I Wanted My Life Back
My brother was moving to Atlanta and asked me if I knew of a decent apartment for him to rent. He is a minimalist kind of guy who is frugal with money. He wanted to be in the midtown Atlanta area so I started looking for apartments in College Park GA and thereabout. He hit me with a criteria list that was not too difficult. He did want a place that was access controlled. A lot of places are really open. He wanted the peace of mind of the extra security for his home because he works for an agency that has him encounter some “questionable personalities” as he likes to refer to them when he jokes about his job.
I told him to check out the studio apartments at The Pad on Harvard. They have nice studio apartments up to two bedroom places. Continue reading Finding My Brother a Nice Studio Apartment in Atlanta
My brother will jump through hoops to save a nickel, and that usually ends up costing him money. He bought a used lawnmower for $25 when I bought my new one for $400. I kept track and have watched him sink hundreds into repairing it while all I buy is gas for mine. When he decided to trim the big tree in his front yard by himself, I told him he should let the pros do it. The tree was too big, and he ended up calling a Brooklyn roofing repair service to fix the shingles he destroyed when his rope trick to take down a big overhanging branch did not work.
I told him the big branch had to weigh about a half ton being that it was an oak tree. He could not accept that. He used a rope to try and hold the entire branch to pull it away from the roof line to get it to the ground. Well, the rope snapped like a twig (pun intended).
