That's great, glad to see you are going back to your home town and will have some family near you. That apartment sounds like a pretty good deal. Best of luck on the move.

Try Natchitoches, LA. Has some of the flavor of Narleans, without the craziness. Temps might work, though summers can be pretty hot and humid.

Best wishes.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm going to be going back to my hometown. I'm a little surprised, but everything came together so I'm heading back.

Default Update

I got approved for the apartment!

My cuz is going to go pay the $99 deposit so they'll hold the unit for me, since I'm not there right now. We don't want someone else to ante up first and then lose out. When that's done, and I know the apartment number, I can arrange for the power to be turned on, and schedule the transfer of my AT&T home phone account.

I'm moving back just in time for the outdoor Spring events to start. My hobby/passion is photography and I also just "lucked" into a medium-range telephoto zoom lens for a steal. I'll have plenty of photo ops, and now the right 'glass' I need to take advantage of all the good shots, even at a distance.

I'll update again when everything's finalized.

you should try Brownsville Texas,warm on winter with some some cold fronts, no more than 200,000 ppl living here,the gulf of Mexico is 25 mins away,Mexico its 5 minutes away,there's museums,parks mall's, plenty of appartments,cheaper food and utilities,there's people from all over the country and world living here,it has a great history,good festivals, and my favorite is Brownsville Public Library..dont forget the Gladis Porter Zoo,good Adult Day Care Centers,3 hospitals and great Doctors ,as well as a comunity clinic.

Thanks, I will. I actually don't spend that much money. Besides being thrifty, I'm actually a woman who HATES shopping, LOL. One of my aunts says I can squeeze the brown off of a penny. I just have a limited income in an expensive city, which interferes with my quality of life and I finally realized that I have to have a car. How "green" I want to be is irrelevant when I have the health issues I have, I've come to learn.

But, yes, I will be living quite frugally for awhile.
