When my ex moved to Florida with our two sons, I had to really think some things through. I only lived about 300 miles away from their new home, but it felt like so much further. I can work from anywhere, so I decided to look at some luxury apartments in Tampa FL to see if it was a move I could also make. I wanted to definitely have a three bedroom apartment, because I was planning on having the boys with me at times. I didn’t care that we live in the same city, because I still wanted my own one on one time with them, and i knew they wanted it with me too.
I was able to find a really nice apartment complex not too far from where she had moved to. I wanted to make sure that there were things there that the boys could do too as far as amenities are concerned. I was able to see actual pictures of everything, including the pool, and I knew that the boys would be impressed and enjoy everything there. I knew that I would too, so I decided to go ahead and take the plunge.
I was able to submit an application right there on the website, and it did not take them long before they got back to me. I was very fortunate that I was able to secure one of the three bedroom units. It did not take long for me to get my house packed up, and the moving truck pulled out the same time I did. I actually had my ex’s blessings for this move, and the boys were eager to help me get the apartment ready for the three of us. Seeing their smiles through this transition made me aware of just how right this move was.
