New Apartment

Well, we are moving at the end of this month, even though I don't have a job in Houston yet. I guess we're just going to trust that I will find something.
We found our apartment last weekend and I'm really excited about it! It is about 40 square feet bigger and is $50/month cheaper. It also has a lot of ameneties that this one doesn't.
It has two tennis courts (no more driving to the park for us!) , a pond in the middle with fountains and ducks (the ducks are cute and walk up to you for handouts). The pond is also stocked with catfish so that DH can get some fishing out of his system. He and my brother have already talked about slipping some small bass in there...don't know if they were serious. It also has a fitness center and a clubhouse with a piano for DH to practice on. It is right next to the park and ride, the bus system that I would use to get downtown to work (if I end up working there) and close enough for me to walk to the library! It is also half senior citizens, so it should be a quiet place. Also you get one covered parking space for free (our other car will have to go into a regular spot).
The downsides are: no washer/dryer connections, so we don't have the option of buying them and doing laundry at home. We think we're in the younger people section of the apartment, so we're hoping they are not too loud. We looked at the balcony of the person below us and saw a kitty through the window (great!) but also big piles of poop on the balcony that looked like a dogs. How disgusting! Hopefully they take care of their dog.
Anyway, for better or worse, we move in on October 30.
Here are some pictures of the floorplan and the complex.

Sounds good and looks good I'm sure you'll be very happy there.

The last two pics... are those the pond or a pool? If its a pond... that's the cleanest water I've ever seen!!

Those are of the pond...but they dye the water blue. That is why the fishing is catch and release only! It looks clean and blue, but not *that* blue in real life.
