I had a child very young, and I have struggled a bit in life because of it. But I wouldn’t give my little boy up for anything. I would not go back in time to change things because he is my world. My life is happier with him in it. So, when I found myself tired of living in the garage at my parent’s place, I wanted to go look at apartments for rent in Forest VA so that I could get a nice place for my son and I. My parents let me live with them so that I could save money. I did that for three years straight. I saved every little coin that I could, and now I have a nice little nest egg. I was ready to get something that would be nice for both my son and me. My parents were really proud of me, and I was proud of me, too.
I had my child when I was just 16 years old. It is along story, but the father disappeared as soon as he found out that I was having his child. That’s okay because he is not good enough to be in my life. If he wants to come around in the future to see his son, I will not deny him. But he will not be part of my life. I have been able to do okay so far without him in it full time. But I do hope that my son gets to know him better as he grows older. He’s a good kid.
I went looking all weekend long and found so many nice places. I picked one out that I could afford easily. It is so much nicer than living in your parent’s garage! And there are a lot of other little children who live in the apartment complex, so he will have lots of friends to play with! It will be perfet for us.

I have always lived on my own. I know that some people would rather have a roommate so they can lower their individual costs, but I was willing to pay more so I can have my privacy. I like other people well enough, but I knew that I was too set in my ways to ever want to live with another person. When I started looking for apartments for Henderson NV when I got transferred there at my request, I knew exactly what I wanted. Because of that, it did not take me long to find it.
What really helped me the most was being able to look at pictures online of the different apartments in the area. Most complexes have their own websites with pictures and everything they offer, which makes it much easier and a whole lot faster for people like me. I was able to discount the majority of the ones that I saw because I was just not happy with one thing or another. When I got to Villa Serena though, I knew that it was the one. I don’t require a lot of space, so I chose to look at the smallest apartment first.
It is 850 square feet, and it really is perfect for me. The master bedroom has a huge walk in closet, and the bathroom is right next to it. The living room is slightly larger than my bedroom, which is actually a lot bigger than it might sound. There is a small dining area right next to the kitchen. My favorite spot though is on the opposite end of the living room. There is a balcony, and I can lose myself out there with some takeout or a good book. I never get lonely because I can go down to the clubhouse anytime I want to talk with others. It really is the best of both worlds here.

I had to make a tough decision, and decide that I am going to move my family into an apartment, even though I do not really want to go that route. I had been hoping that we would be able to buy a house, but it does not look like it is in the cards at the moment. So anyway, I am hoping to look into Alamo Heights San Antonio apartments that are availabel for rent right now, and try to figure out how much they cost to rent. I hope that they are not too expensive, but at the same time, I do want to move my family into an apartment that is fairly nice, because I think it is important that my kids are able to grow up in an good environment.
We wanted to buy a house, but we just don’t have enough money for the down payment, and could not really afford the mortgage on a house that would suit our needs, so we are not going to be able to do that. For awhile, we had thought about moving into a condo instead, but it seems that is out of the picture as well, at least for the moment. But we should be able to buy something maybe within the next year. I guess I will have to try to figure out exactly, or approximately rather, when we will be in that situation, so I can figure out how long of a lease we need to get on the apartment. But right now we are living with my wife’s parents and that is not a good situation, so it is more or less imperative that we find somewhere of our own to live in the next month or so and the sooner that happens, the better.

When my wife called me crying a few weeks ago, I thought the worst had happened. We have four children, and I thought something happened to one of them. She didn’t make me wait too long though, for which I am extremely grateful. She told me that she was at her wit’s end, because she was not able to get the air conditioner working at our house. She wanted to know if she should call a company that does air conditioning repair in NYC. I asked her a few questions, but it was pretty obvious that we were not going to be able to fix it over the phone with me 2000 miles away on a business trip.
I told her I would look online for the company that we should use, and I would contact them. I knew she was doing her best to keep the kids comfortable, as it was close to 90 degrees on the day she called. Inside, I knew that temperature had to be a lot higher and much more stifling. I quickly found a company that was able to get out there that day, and I called my wife back so she knew to expect them.
When the repairman got there, it did not take him very long to figure out what was wrong. There were a couple of parts that needed to be replaced, including the refrigerant since it was low. He also changed the filter because it was pretty dirty. The repairs did not take him very long, and he had cool air coming from the air conditioner in no time. My wife was so happy, and my kids were ecstatic. I am just thankful that the company we chose was able to act as quickly as they did on such a hot day!
