Not Quite Florida...

***
I have been referring to this move lately as the
"Never Ending Move"
as we have been in transition for
2 1/2 months already & we won't be settled
back into our own place until August.

If you don't recall or you missed our original "We Are Moving" post, click the link to catch up :o)
You can also read about "Part 1 Of Our Move," & "Part 2 Of Our Move if you missed them.
Then read on...

Since being in South Georgia at my parents for the past couple months we have made some changes to our original plans. Donna has been commuting 45 minutes to work everyday, she has to get up at 4:30am & doesn't get home until after 6:30 most days. We have realized that neither of us really want for her to have to commute. We also came to this realization after looking unsuccessfully in North Florida for a place to live. We checked out a few places close to Donna's station & found that Georgia is a lot less expensive to live in!!! 

After taking everything into consideration we have decided to take another apartment, on the first floor this time. We debated on a house or an apartment but the amenities of an apartment won us over. I think it will be so nice & so much easier to be able to just walk to the pool or playground as opposed to loading up all 3 boys & driving someplace. This will also give us the opportunity to get to know the area better, learn the school districts & make sure we buy a house exactly where we want to stay for the boys school years.


We won't be near the beaches we originally thought, but we'll be less than 15 minutes from St Simon's Island & close to Jekyll Island & Sea Island. We will also be less than an hour from Jacksonville & less than an hour from Donna's favorite city, Savannah. There's a lot of new places, beaches & parks for us to explore with the boys & enjoy with our families. We are pretty excited!!!


Our apartment won't be ready until August 1st so we're sitting tight at my parents until then & waiting anxiously to have all of our belongings in one place again.
