We have been staying with family in the Bay Area since the move and while I found work. Family is great and we could not have made it without their help, but it's time to move on.
Back when BossLady took her photo gig, we drove up and went apartment hunting with little luck. It's very frustrating when they all want money NOW and we were just getting ideas. So we backed off and decided to wait till I landed something.
Today we signed our papers for our new place.
We are both excited to have our own place again. We appreciate all the family has done, but we need to have "our" space back. We miss it.
The only problem... We have to wait a month till we actually move in.
This could be a good thing, as I have to get going on the new job and the dust will settle a bit for us. And we can start planning our move without feeling rushed.
BossLady is happy, too. She will be in her hometown. I will be close to mine, though I have lived in this city before. And she will be close to her family, which is something she has not had in 5 years. And best of all in her mind, I have to get her a new kitten, which we decided we will rescue from the local shelter.
The place is in a nice location, close to BART and a golf course as well as tennis courts and a lake.
Ah... the joys of moving...
