hunting and gathering


thirteen things about apartment hunting and moving cross country
week #17


1. apartment hunting is both harder and easier from 2500 miles away

2. i am completely amazed at the information you can find online and how vastly different a place can be from their website. the pictures are often miraculously better than reality.

3. apartment personel are always smiling, they always laugh at your jokes, they usually compliment you on your earrings, shoes, hair, etc.

4. before i owned a washer and dryer, i couldn't find an apartment with them. now that i have a fabulous set of my very own and want to move with them, i cannot find an apartment without them.

5. because my company builds apartments (and its a shame that i cannot have one of them), i suspect that i ask leasing agents very annoying questions when i am visiting new apartments

6. isn't this a lovely floor plan:


7. we are picking up a big huge truck next week. i hope my husband can drive it...

8. i didn't start packing until tonight. *fret*

9. thankfully my parents are coming this weekend. they aren't union so i'm putting them to work round the clock.

10. my new apartment complex has a fitness center and i pinky swear that i'll work out more often

11. i don't even like to swim but i can't wait to lounge by here:

12. we are moving between christmas and new years. i think that must be about the most inconvenient time EVER to move.

13. i just can't wait! we are going to start a new life in a new place and i just can't wait!

    I would think that it'd be harder just because you don't get a feel for what it'd really be like to live there... And it's too bad about your washer and dryer. I've found that problem with fridges when moving around in LA.

    By the way, the floor plan looks wonderful! :) AND that swimming pool looks great. How exciting!

    The pool's gorgeous! And is that the layout of the new place? If so, looks nice. If not, too bad you couldn't find it...

    Best of luck for a smooth move and happy TT!

    I moved cross country once and you're exactly right! It was easier and harder! Good luck on the move, the pool is absolutely refreshingly gorgeous!

    That is so cool! I love the view from where you will be lounging.

    Green with envy now.

    I'm up!

    I'm all for a new place and a new life! I would have a tough time leaving my family...but would love to get the heck out of here. :)

    I hope you can find time to enjoy your Christmas and New Years!

    Happy thursday!

    The floor plan looks awesome. Moving - or at least the packing bit - can be horrific. Hope your move goes smoothly.

    Good luck with your move. When my husband got out of the military, he packed the house. I just don't do well with that kind of thing. LOL I probably would have broke all of our dishes.

    I love being able to see all the cool places online.

    My TT is up too.

    Ohhh, is that really a picture of the pool by your new place??

    There is a degree of excitement with moving to a new place...new beginnings.

    My 13 are up.

    "the pictures are often miraculously better than reality."

    I noticed this about house-hunting. Must be the angles and the filters on the cameras. ;)

    Good luck with the move. I just moved over Thanksgiving with my non-union parents helping. Non-union has lots of opinions. But they were great help! :P
