I have decided to move out of my apartment near the Tucson Mall. I've moving from the west side to the east side. I keep running the Jefferson's TV show theme in my head (Movin' on up, to the east side, to a deluxe apartment in the sky...).
Anthony and I are moving in together. The apartment search wasn't too bad. A couple weekends and we found an awesome place only two miles from the radio/TV building. I have driven it twice to check and its a six minute commute. It sure beats the nearly 30 minute commute I have each way now.
The apartment is really cool. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, fireplace, patio outside the front door and another balcony outside one of the bedrooms. It has a big kitchen, separate dining room, breakfast bar, washer/dryer, and a hot tub at the bottom of the stairs (its on the second floor). 1055 square feet. Lots of storage too.
Oddly enough I'll miss the apartment I'm living in now in a few ways. I've been here more than 3 1/2 years. I like the neighborhood (I've lived in this general area for about eight years). I haven't tried living on Tucson's east side before so maybe I'll like it as well. I do find it kind of funny that the new apartment is four blocks from a Hooter's.
We're signing the lease and picking up the keys on Thursday. I'll get photos up when I get them taken. In the meantime, I need some more boxes because I have lots of packing to do.
