When my husband passed away two years ago, I just figured i would stay in our house. I could afford it because he made sure I was taken care of with a life insurance policy. I realized I did not like living there on my own. People thought it was the memories, but I actually took comfort in those. I just did not like all the work that is associated with living in a house. That is why I started looking at apartments and finally was satisfied when I looked at www.overlookatcrosstownwalkapts.com.
It is not that I am lazy, but I am also not cut out for yard work and small repairs. I am not prepared to mow the grass, pull the weeds, fix cracks in the driveway, maintain the appliances when a small repair comes up, and all the other things that any homeowner must handle. My husband always took care of those things while I would take care of the cooking and cleaning. We definitely had a traditional marriage, and it worked out really well for both of us. When it was just me to do all of that, I knew that living in an apartment was in my very near future.
I had never lived in one before, but I have many friends who do. That is how I knew that I wanted to have an apartment for myself. None of my friends have to handle things that pop up like I mentioned. The most they might have to do is take care of a house plant on their balconies. That is definitely something I can handle, and it did not take long for me to put my house on the market and get settled into a nice two bedroom apartment. It is just me, but I wanted a room to be available should my son or grandchildren want to come see me.
