So if you follow me, and I think maybe 4 or 5 of you do… then you know I’ve been completely miserable in where I lived for the last 3 years. I truly lived in the ghetto, a place I’d never thought I would have been subjected to living in, more or less raise my children there. I know, your probably thinking, c’mon Shanny, it can’t be that bad.. Well it was..it was so bad that the po po didn’t even come into the complex… and if they did, they did nothing. Example, one night the security guard (joke of a guard) found a homeless man living in one of the laundry rooms, and he had built himself a meth lab. He called the police and when they showed up the guy said it wasn’t his, so the cops told the security guard “Well, he says it’s not his” and let the guy go and left the the lab stuff there.. yeah.. it was that bad.
Well a little over a month ago my neighbors were wrongfully evicted (the office manager has a vendetta to get the law abiding citizens out of the complex and fill it with those who won’t ever complain about anything because they don’t want any attention brought on them) and when that happened all hell broke loose. Everyone started comparing notes with each other and we found out that we were on her list to be evicted because we were one of the families who did complain about the roaches, the mold, the mildew, the crime, the parking issue’s.. all of it, and she didn’t want that. So our neighbors found this apartment complex that was running a special on a 4 bedroom apartment and we decided to go check it out. I was terrified that we were going to be evicted and have no where to go but also terrified that we wouldn’t have enough money to move on… but I think God finally showed a little compassion to us and lit the way for us to see how to get out..
Fast forward a month later and we are now moved into our new 4 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment in a complex that has a tennis court, a basketball court, 12 playgrounds and an Olympic sized pool with a wave pool being built. It’s only 1/2 mile or so down the road from where we were living but oh what a difference does that little distance make! When you pull in it’s a total different atmosphere. It doesn’t feel oppressed or angry, there is 24 hour security, 24 hour maintenance and it’s guaranteed your issue will be resolved within 24 hours of the order being submitted, which we’ve already found that out because our air went out one night and the guy came out at midnight to fix it! The tenants are all nice and say hi to you or strike up conversations with you when you walk by, there’s no foul mouth 5 year olds outside cussing up a blue streak, there are no teenagers running in gangs terrorizing everyone… it’s heaven!
So now that we’ve moved, and a new chapter is starting in our lives.. I will promise to pick up on my blogging and start posting more. Love you guys, miss you guys and glad to be back starting in this new life.. 🙂
