Well, it's almost completely official. Gary and I are moving at the end of March/beginning of April. We've been scouting around looking at apartment prices just to see how we are looking. We decided if we could find something cheaper than the $839 we are paying now, that would be great, since we always need more money. :)

I was pretty much thinking we might find alittle difference in price, something Carlton might be willing to match, since they are panicing at the number of empty apartments. However, we found too good of a deal to pass up. It's $75 less than we are paying now, and $125 less than Carlton's equivanlent. It's an apartment at Hunter's Ridge on the ground floor, facing the lake.

It's really good for Gary in that it is about 2 minutes from work literally, and that means he's home sooner and can sleep later and might even be able to come home for lunch alot. It's sad for me because I really like Lakeland much better, I'm finally comfortable with shopping here, and I like being about 10 minutes from half a dozen churchy friends.

Gary laughed at me, and pointed out, that we can't sit at the Lakeland table at church during lunch anymore. Sniff, sniff.

WAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!! I'm losing my best BFF to stupid Plant City!!!!!! I'm going to sneak into your packed boxes and pop up at your new place when Gary's not looking! :)

I guess I am happy for you that you'll be saving money (and time for Gary)! What about all your cat-capades? I know for a fact that Plant City doesn't have any cats! :) (I know, I am a big fat liar)...

Well if you are going to miss me that much, maybe I'll recruit you to help me paint and move haha. :)

We can still get together often and play wii. Sides it's just till we can afford a house in Lakeland/Mulberry. :)

I have the perfect house for you. Right at the beginning of my subdivision, it's a 2Br/2Ba 1,536 sq. ft. 2 car garage, pool home only $139,900...the HOA fees are only $40.00 a year...I think you should move there instead! (I'll email you the listing from MLS just in case!) :)

As for painting, and moving, you know you don't even have to ask! Of course I will help... just make sure you have lots of drop cloths, I am a very messy painter!

How far of a move are we talking about here? More than 15 or 20 minutes? I need some help in perspective.
