They’re Going To Be Living Together

Check out this letter I just got from my younger brother.  I remember when I first moved in with my significant other.  Haha!

My girlfriend finally caved in and agreed that we should live together. Her only thing was that we had to get a new place as she didn’t want to live at my place. It is too far from her job and her place is way too small for me to move in there. I told her that was fine as I am on a month to month lease. She rents her apartment from her parents so she doesn’t have to worry about that with them. She told me this last night over dinner so now I have to figure out where we are going to stay.

I know it has to be closer to her job which is fine by me. I work from home most of the time so that doesn’t really concern me. She works in a very nice part of town so I’m sure that the apartments there will be expensive. I have good credit though so it isn’t that big of a deal. I also have to consider that we are going to be splitting the rent and utilities so I can definitely afford more than I pay now.

The one thing I would like to have is a pool. I haven’t had one since I was a kid. It gets so hot here during here during the summer so it would be nice to be able to cool off when I wanted to. I like to ride my bike a lot for exercise and could wear my swim trunks on my ride then come home and jump right in the pool. That would be sweet so I’ll definitely be looking for a place that has one. My girlfriend pretty much left it up to me to find a place although she will have a say in the matter of course. We’ll go together on the walk through and all that.

I will be sort of sad leaving my current place as I have been here since I graduated college. I have a lot of good memories here but I know I can’t stay here forever. I’m a bit worried about my cat Travis adjusting to a new place but I think he’ll be ok. He is a very sensitive cat and doesn’t do well with changes. When I have visitors over (except for my girlfriend as he is used to her by now) he will hide under my bed until well after they leave. I’ll have to make sure he gets plenty of attention when we move so he isn’t overwhelmed.
