So Where Are We Now?

I realized with my last post that I didn't update y'all on our awesome new digs.

Oh wait, maybe that's because our new place is a frightening apartment that we cannot wait to move out of!

Finding a short term lease in Atlanta is hard. Finding one that is affordable? Even harder.  So we used a local company called Promove to help our search and we ended up *GASP* OTP in the Norcross/Doraville area.

The day before we were to move into our apartment, we got a call from the leasing agent that the unit was not ready. Could we wait a few days?


Weeks of planning. Movers hired. Condo under contract and to be sold a few days later.

NO. We could not postpone our move.

After many frustrating phone calls, they moved us to another unit. We are now on the second floor. (Awesome when you are trying to carry in twins, even better when you have to pay movers more money to move your crap up an additional flight of stairs).

Gas company called. Everything changed. Cable called. Everything changed. Post Office called. Everything changed. Thanks apartment people.

It was a long & expensive day, but we were moved. The loft was cleaned & sold and now we are living the dream in apartment #3321.

Our washing machine leaked the first time we used them. A maintenance worker banged on our door at 3AM with no identification trying to rectify the situation. Understandable, but not cool dude.

We apparently live next to and above the next up and coming DJ. DJ BASS FX WILL HIT YOU WITH THE DOPE ASS BEATS ALL THE TIME.

Thank goodness the gals sleep.

Smoker downstairs = We are now smokers, because it seeps into our place once a cigarette is lit.

I know all this complaining is so annoying but I swear there is a purpose.

It leads to my next post...

We are building a house that will be done in November and we are SO FREAKING EXCITED.

Apartment life sucks, but it will all be worth it.
